Relief For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

However, this type of injury affects employees in a wide range of industries that require workers to use repetitive motions. Wherever it occurs, it can be debilitating, causing the injured worker to lose functionality in the affected extremity or limb and experience significant pain.

Information About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Stress Injuries
Carpal tunnel syndrome is defined by Iowa’s workers’ compensation system as a cumulative trauma injury. It cannot be traced to any specific accident or injury, but is rather a result of repeated trauma to muscles, tendons and joints caused by performing the same motion over and over again. Also known as repetitive stress injury, carpal tunnel syndrome is sometimes hard to diagnose and treat. It is important to obtain the right type of medical care to obtain relief from the pain and loss of ability that usually accompanies this condition.
