Q: What are the symptoms of repetitive stress injuries?
You’ve been working as a fire prevention sprinkler installer in Lebanon for five years. Your job duties require you to constantly look up at the ceiling, and work with your hands above your head. You often come home with headaches, sore shoulders, and an aching neck. Could you have a repetitive stress injury?
Symptoms of Repetitive Stress Injuries
Those who perform the same movements day in and day out are prone to experiencing repetitive stress injuries. Do you have the symptoms?
Although the symptoms can vary, they often include:
At the beginning of the injury, the symptoms may only occur when you are performing the movements that caused them. You may feel better once you are at rest. After a few months, however, you will likely experience more pain and swelling if the injury isn’t treated. If the condition continues without treatment, the effects may become irreversible.
