Seeking repetitive strain injury advice at the earliest opportunity after the condition has been diagnosed is crucial for successful treatment and your ability to continue your life without pain. The term repetitive strain injury is a universal term that describes the pain and discomfort that is felt in muscles, nerves and tendons as a result of a repeated pattern of movement. The condition generally affects areas of the upper body with the arms, wrists, hands, neck and shoulders being the most common areas of injury. The condition can be very painful, with cramps and stiffness being common symptoms. It can also present as a numbness that is equally debilitating.Your employer should take precautions to ensure that the aspects of your job that consist of repetitive movements are addressed so that this condition can be avoided.
