Repetitive Stress Injuries and Workers’ Compensation

Repetitive stress injuries – also known as repetitive strain – involve conditions that arise from placing excessive stress on a joint. A repetitive stress injury results when the same or similar actions are performed again and again. Stress to a joint pulls on surrounding tissues, including tendons, muscles and bursae. The repetitive nature of the action means that an important part of the anatomy has insufficient time to recover, until the affected area swells and becomes painful.

The most frequent repetitive stress injuries are tendinitis and bursitis. Tendinitis is a condition where the tendon or surrounding sheath becomes highly inflamed. Bursitis is inflammation occurring in the bursa.

Particular types of repetitive stress injury accompany certain actions: these include Bicipital Tendinitis (often from scrubbing motions), Tennis Elbow from bending the wrist backwards (as when using a paint brush), Golfer’s Elbow from bending the wrist forward (when pulling ropes, for instance), and DeQuervain’s Tendosynovitis (from cumulative pinching or twisting of the wrist).
