Being productive at your job can sometimes be a real pain

You have been working in the same industry for years, and you might notice some pervasive aches and pains that you did not have when you first started out. No, this does not necessarily mean you are getting old, or that you should just deal with it without complaining. Like many other Georgia residents, your job might have contributed to a repetitive motion injury.

But my job is not that difficult or physically strenuous, you might think. How can I have a repetitive motion disorder? The unfortunate truth is that repetitive movement injuries can occur even with light labor, if you have been doing the same job for a few months or years. You might develop chronic pain in your shoulders from carrying food trays as a restaurant server. You could get carpal tunnel syndrome in your wrists, or painful elbows if you are a nail technician or massage therapist. Repetitive movement injuries are also common with typists, assembly line operators, artists, surgeons and practically anyone who performs the same motions over and over in his or her daily work.

What else do you need to know about this potentially career-damaging injury? Consider the following:

  • The most common types of repetitive motion injuries affect the shoulders, elbow or biceps.
  • Pain resulting from a repetitive motion injury is usually the result of a tendon inflammation or friction involving a bursa – a fluid-filled sac that protects an area of frequent friction.
  • A repetitive motion injury is often caused by workforce activity or trauma, but could also worsen an existing condition, such as a sports injury, gout or arthritis.

Repetitive movement disorders are one of the most common injuries in the country and cause significant losses in the workforce each year. While this is unfortunate, it also means that you may be eligible for workers’ compensation to treat your pain and allow you to continue being productive and active.
