Vibration white finger
Vibrating equipment is known to trigger this condition. Many of these type of hand held vibrating tools include:
- pneumatic drills
- chain saws, grinders and hammers
- impact wrenches
Obviously the symptoms do not begin overnight, but progress slowly over a long period of time after sustained and repetitive use of hand held vibrating tools. It is also caused by using machinery that vibrates however it is unclear how this vibration causes the condition to develop.
It is thought that it may be due to the slight but repeated injury to the small nerves and blood vessels in the fingers. These nerves and blood vessels may lose their function over a period of time and cause the symptoms to develop.
