Types of Injuries
There are several types of repetitive motion injuries that construction workers develop regularly; however, the three most common are:
- Bursitis: A common type of injury that targets the body’s bursae, or fluid-filled sacs that act as a cushion for areas of friction between tendon and bone or skin
- Tendonitis: Tendon injuries that involve larger-scale acute injuries accompanied by inflammation
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Nerve damage in the wrist, which can cause loss of feeling in hands, movement degenerates (commonly associated with typing)
If you are experiencing pain, inflammation, numbness, swelling, or a tingling sensation in a joint that is constantly put to use, you should consult your doctor about the possibility of an injury.
