Repetitive Strain Injuries Can Keep You from WorkingBy Pyle Law, November 26 2019 6:56 pm
A repetitive strain injury (RSI) is an injury borne of the overuse and repetitive motion inherent to performing certain physical tasks. While nearly any kind of work can lead to an RSI, industries like manufacturing, construction work, healthcare, and clerical work are especially vulnerable. If you’ve suffered an RSI on the job, you need the professional legal guidance of an experienced Kansas workers’ compensation attorney.
RSIs are related to repetitive movement over time that gradually leads to an injury. An RSI can cause extreme pain, swelling in the affected area, numbness, and even permanent nerve damage. Ultimately, an RSI can be physically debilitating. Common forms of RSIs include:
Repetitive strain injuries are usually slow to develop, which means they can be extremely deceptive.

Although RSIs are often acquired on the job, such an injury can negatively affect every part of your life and can be seriously disruptive – including disrupting your ability to do your job.
