Sometimes, many people have trouble understanding the term repetitive trauma injury. An easy way to remember it is as follows: A certain activity at work causes or aggravates an injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Every time you continue to perform that activity you continue to injure that part of your body. Many workers are unaware that they even injure themselves right away. Symptoms of carpal tunnel may feel like pins and needles in your fingers or your hands falling asleep during the day. If you have developed these symptoms, please make your employer aware if they are happening at your job.
