Growing up in the age of technology have our bodies really adapted to the demands of typing for hours all day? Do you think our bodies have adapted to sitting for hours while staring at a screen? The chances are probably not. Technology– such as computers and the internet– have barely existed in our historical timeline. Yet, we cling to technology as if life couldn’t exist without it. Take a moment to consider how many times you swipe or text on your phone. Consider how long you sit in front of screens. Consider how long you type email after email or use your mouse to scroll through endless tabs and sites. Engaging in these behaviors every day can cause repetitive motion injury.
Our Lancaster Repetitive Motion Injury Attorneys at Koszdin, Fields & Sherry have successfully fought for our clients since 1955. We are ready to fight for you. Are you hands cramping when you type? Do your wrists or arms ache after a full day of work? Are you noticing that your weekends are full of pain and not full of fun? Repetitive motion injuries (RMI) are the kinds of injuries that don’t get better over time. In fact, they get worse. If you are searching for help with repetitive stress injuries, here are two common injuries:
- RMI in the wrist is the most common for people who work with computers all day. Because the nature of the job requires one to type or move a mouse in the same ways over and over, RSI can show up after only a year or so on the job. Wrist pain can be triggered by poor posture, excessive computer mouse use, wrist dorsiflexion, and poor ergonomics keyboard. The only way to treat is to see a doctor and work on a plan to recovery.
- Carpal Tunnel is the most popular RMI. Many people have heard of this injury. Again, without taking proper precaution this injury only gets worse over time. The pain can be felt from the palm of the hand to the elbow.
