    Residents of Wiltshire are likely to suffer various injuries and illnesses on a day-to-day basis. A common injury claimed for in this area is repetitive strain injury (RSI), which can be quite a debilitating injury. If you have suffered from repetitive strain injury then you should file a compensation claim with the help of Accident Advice Helpline in Wiltshire.

    Repetitive strain injury

    RSI refers to a condition where pain is felt in muscles, nerves and tendons. It is caused by constantly performing repetitive actions, the overuse of certain muscles, nerves or tendons as well as poor posture whilst working. It can affect any part of the upper body but is most commonly felt in the:

    • Wrists and hands;
    • Forearms and elbows; and the
    • Shoulders and neck

    You may notice the condition suddenly or it may develop over time.

    Jobs at risk of RSI

    Any job involving repetitive activities or the overuse of any part of the upper body could lead to RSI. Common jobs where RSI becomes an issue include:

    • Office jobs involving heavy computer use
    • Working on a conveyor belt or at an assembly line
    • Working at a supermarket checkout
    • Industrial and factory based jobs which involve the use of vibrating equipment

    These are just a small sample so if your particular job or work activities are not listed you could still be at risk or already be suffering from RSI.

    Symptoms of RSI

    Common symptoms of the condition include:

    • Cramps
    • Stiffness
    • Sharp or dull aches
    • Weakness in the affected area
    • Tingling sensations

    Over time the symptoms may get worse; the pain may increase, the affected area may swell and you may be unable to perform household activities or certain work activities. In the case of the latter you may have to take time of work which could result in lost wages.

    If you suspect you are suffering from RSI then you should seek medical help.

    However, if you have already been diagnosed with the condition and it has been brought about through your job, your employer could be seen as responsible and so you could be due compensation.
