Causes of Repetitive Stress and Carpal Tunnel
Basically, any type of motion repeated often over a period of time can cause damage to the joints in your hands and arms or other body parts. We have handled carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress cases caused by things like:
- Computers and typing: Office staff, writers and people working in data entry are frequent sufferers of carpal tunnel.
- Fine motor tools and equipment: We have seen cases where dental technicians suffered repetitive stress syndrome from working with fine motor tools.
- Electrical wiring: Some electricians spend a lot of time performing the same physical action of pulling wiring through tubing, causing injuries.
- Welders: Welders are also in the same position, dong the same repeated motion for long periods of time. This can cause serious injuries.
