Vibration white finger can be a serious work injury which if not treated properly can cause a lot of problems in the future.
What should I do if I have suffered this type of repetitive strain injury?
The first things you need to think about are the tasks that you continually do which has caused this repetitive strain injury. Once you have worked this out you need to talk to your work place about decreasing and perhaps changing roles so that you do not have to keep repeating this task.
If this is not possible then speak to your work about reducing the amount of time you have to spend undertaking this particular job to reduce the chance of increasing the work injury.
How serious can this work injury get?
If you ignore the symptoms of vibration white finger and make no changes to your usual daily routine then the pain can become intense and a simple accident at work injury can become a permanent work injury which could affect much more than whilst you are at work.
At its worst repetitive strain injuries can mean that you need surgery if it becomes severe enough to cause chronic pain. This can mean a lot of time off work and loss of earnings.
