Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Torn Rotator Cuffs
Repetitive stress injuries are caused by a repeated motion that eventually causes a joint, tendon, or ligament to give way, wear out, or swell to the point of pain, resulting in a reduced range of motion, or complete disuse. Often, conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, torn rotator cuff, and tendonitis are caused by occupational hazards, such as typing, lifting, or any activity that causes prolonged use of a body part. Pain often worsens with activity, and is often accompanied by weakness or numbness. If the injury progresses without correcting the activity or treatment, injury and permanent damage can occur.
SSD and Repetitive Stress Injuries
Repetitive stress injuries can cause severe and permanent damage to the affected joints. If a repetitive stress injury prevents you from working for at least 12 months, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Torn rotator cuffs, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and other conditions caused by repeated movement can be severe enough to limit your ability to work.
