Work-Related Repetitive Use Injuries Result From Overuse
If your job requires you to repeat the same motion over and over again, you are at risk for developing overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, epicondylitis and others. These are also known as repetitive stress injuries.

Common Overuse Injuries People Experience
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs through the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Symptoms include pain, tingling, or numbness and weakness in the hand, wrist and forearm. For more information on carpel tunnel syndromes, please see Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Frequently Asked Questions.
Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve is pinched or compressed at the elbow. Symptoms include numbness, weakness and tingling of the hand and fingers.
Epicondylitis is an overuse injury that causes pain from the elbow to the wrist. If the pain is on the underside of the forearm, it is known as medial epicondylitis. If the pain is on the back side of the elbow and forearm, it is known as lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow.
Cumulative trauma injuries occur slowly over time. It’s often difficult to remember when your hand or arm first began to hurt. In order to obtain benefits, I must show that injury is related to your work and that your occupation is one that involves enough repetitive motion to cause such an injury.
