Do office workers risk developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

At the end of a long day, many office workers feel minor soreness in their shoulders or realize that they have strained their eyes too much. On the other hand,  some feel unbearable pain from typing or using a mouse. It is likely that these people are suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

This medical condition involves the nerve that extends from your palm to your arm. Pressure on this nerve causes pain and numbness in your hand. It often causes manual tasks such as typing, writing or even holding a phone to become more difficult.  Many hard working employees are effected by this condition. Unfortunately, it can significantly cut your production at work.

Often times, individuals suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome because of the  type of jobs their employer makes them perform.  In fact, people do not realize that if they perform repetitive activities at work and they develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or related conditions they are able to seek compensation for those injuries.  Other work injuries  are simply more apparent.

The use of a  keyboard and mouse can directly cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, although the insurance companies won't tell you so. In fact, once you receive a diagnosis you may be denied benefits. If you can't continue  to work as usual due to this medical condition or you need medical treatment, you may be able to secure worker's compensation.

This type of case requires you to prove that your job contributed to your condition. An attorney can help you prove that repetitive motion played a major role in your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome diagnosis so that you can access the benefits you need.
