Repetitive Motion Injuries

When a person performs the same motion repetitively over time, he or she is at risk of developing a repetitive motion injury. Although the motion may not require a significant amount of effort and may not cause damage in the short term, this type of stress can cause serious pain and injury over a long period of time.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of a repetitive stress injury, you may be able to pursue fair financial compensation from the party responsible to cover the cost of your losses. Contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer from Salpeter Gitkin, LLP, by calling 954-467-8622 to discuss your legal options.

Symptoms of Repetitive Motion Injuries

Patients who are diagnosed with repetitive stress injuries may display the following symptoms:

  • Quick bursts of strong pain through the arms, shoulders, back, wrists, hands, or thumbs
  • Pain that worsens with activity
  • Increasing weakness or a loss of endurance

These symptoms are different from those associated with carpal tunnel syndrome since they usually occur across multiple areas of the body and are not directly associated with a particular nerve, tendon, or muscle.
