Office repetitive strain injuries
Although no one wants to assume that they could become injured in the workplace, this does happen sometimes, especially with repetitive strain. This problem begins with the use of a piece of equipment and ends with the inability to ever use it again.
- Tendonitis – One of the more common injuries that causes stress on the muscles is tendonitis. This is a repetitive strain injury caused by excessive clicking of the mouse. Because many people have to work in an office and use a mouse on a daily basis, this is a problem they all feel, especially when there is no wrist support.
- Strain on the back – Sitting at a desk to use a computer every day puts a lot of strain on the back and neck. Unless you have exceptional posture or use an ergonomic chair, this means permanent changes to the curvature of the spine, and potentially a lot of pain for the rest of your life. In this case, you may make an injury claim in Killin.
- Leg strain – If you work in a job where you have to use your leg or foot repetitively, such as a seamstress would on a sewing machine, you may feel the pain of repetitive strain injury, which can cause degradation of the leg muscles and pain.
If you are ever injured in the workplace, either in the long term or just as a one-off, you deserve some form of compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline may be able to give it to you. All you need to do is pick up the phone and lodge your injury claim in Killin so that we can start working on your case and help you get the compensation you may be due.
