Have you suffered a hand or arm injury?
Although minor hand or arm injuries may not cause too much of a problem, if you have suffered a serious injury you may be finding it hard to cope with your everyday life. When people are used to having full mobility and are free from injuries, it can be very difficult to adapt to limited mobility or ongoing pain from injuries, particularly if your recovery period is likely to last for months or your injuries are likely to cause permanent damage.
As most people use their hands for work, any injury affecting their arms or hands could affect the type of work they are able to do, or even their ability to work at all. If you’re an office worker and you use a computer for eight hours every day, any injury which affects your hands, arms or wrists could prevent you from continuing with this type of work.
Similarly, if you work in the building trade and you regularly use power tools, a hand or arm injury could prevent you from doing this and you may be unable to work for some time.
