Making an injury claim in Smallburgh


Got symptoms of vibration white finger and need to make an injury claim in Smallburgh?

Vibration white finger is also known as hand arm vibration syndrome or dead finger.  It causes changes in sensory perception, which can lead to permanent numbness in the fingers, muscle weakness and even result in the fingers turning white.

What causes vibration white finger?

As the name suggests, vibration white finger is caused by repeated and frequent use of vibrating tools such as power drills and is usually an industrial injury as a result of poor training and inadequate health and safety procedures.  It is unclear how vibrating tools cause this condition, but it is thought that slight and repeated injury is caused to the small nerves and blood vessels in the fingers and hands.

Symptoms of vibration white finger

To start with, you may not realise you have the condition as it quite often starts in just the fingertips.  As time goes on you may experience:

  • Pins and needles in fingers
  • Numbness which may be worse at night
  • Restricted blood flow to fingers leading to them turning blue and even white
  • Pain which can become worse when the hands are cold or wet.

Diagnosis of vibration white finger

The doctor will conduct a physical examination of your fingers and hands to check:

  1. Your grip strength
  2. Your ability to perform fine motor movements

Preventing vibration white finger

Vibration white finger may be prevented by:

  • Holding tools as loosely as possible and varying the position that they are held in
  • Making sure that the tools are well maintained and serviced regularly
