Have you noticed increased pain on your job when you are doing the same thing over and over again? Is the pain affecting other parts of your life?
The truth is, not all work-related injuries happen immediately. Many serious injuries take years to develop and gradually get worse.
Any job in Georgia that requires you to do the same thing over and over can create repetitive stress injuries. The kind of injury can vary by the actual job. The same stress can create a different injury in different people.
Here are a few repetitive stress injuries:
• Carpal tunnel
• Achilles tendon
• Torn rotator cuff
• Shoulder injury
• Back injury
• Ganglion cyst
• Soft tissue strains
• Cubital tunnel
If you think you are suffering from a repetitive stress injury, seek medical attention quickly. Do not put off going to the doctor. Repetitive stress injuries can gradually get worse, but the damage caused can last. Some of these injuries can cripple you and leave you in pain. If the appointed doctor does not recognize your problem, you need to get a second opinion. The Cochran Firm can recommend doctors who specialize in repetitive stress injuries.
