Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Atlanta Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Attorney

Jobs that involve repetitive use of your hands and wrist can cause serious work-related injuries.  Hundreds of jobs require repetitive use, repetitive motion, or repetitive stress; however, the following types of workers and work activities are frequently associated with repetitive motion injuries:

            • Assembly Line Workers
            • Checkout Line Workers (Scanning Items)
            • Data Entry Specialists
            • Data Processing Specialists
            • Factor Workers
            • Typing and Administrative Work
            • Operating Vibrating Tools

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome are two types of repetitive motion injuries that frequently occur in the workplace.  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a type of nerve damage caused by compression and irritation of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel, a bony canal in the palm side of the wrist.  Common symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include numbness and tingling, especially on the thumb-side of the hand, wrist pain, a “pins and needles” feeling, grip weakness, and lack of coordination.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is caused by an injury to, or repetitive movement of, the nerve that runs behind the elbow.  It can also be caused by running machinery or leaning or resting on the elbow for long periods of time.  Common symptoms of Cubital Tunnel Sydrome include pain and numbness in hand, especially in the ring and little fingers of the hand, and, in some cases, weakness and pain in the hand and elbow.
