Cedar Rapids Repetitive Strain Injury Lawyer
Repetitive strain injuries, also referred to as cumulative trauma disorder, are primarily occupational hazards where pain develops due to the repetitive use of a certain tool or a repetitive physical motion. The symptoms typically include a diffuse feeling of pain in the arm or leg that is overworked, which worsens as the activity continues. It is also typified by a lack of endurance in the over-worked limb.
