Office injuries are often caused by repetitive motion

Office workers who spend most of their time sitting in front of a computer screen may unknowingly sustain injuries from repetitive movement.

Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) affect the tendons, joints, and nerves of the upper body. These injuries initially go unnoticed since they are minimal and their exact cause is unobvious.

Employees who type for long hours at poorly set up workstations could suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Additionally, workers who avoid taking breaks are more likely to suffer from migraines and bursitis. Bursitis occurs when the sacs over the joints swell.

Injuries caused by repetitive motion may prevent workers from doing their job. If you sustain an injury at work, you could be eligible for compensation. For legal representation in Minnesota, contact Robert Wilson & Associates. Give us a call today at 612-334-3444 to see how we can help you.
