How much compensation for industrial disease

A repetitive strain injury (RSI) is often also referred to a group of disorders known as Work Related Upper Limb Disorders or WRULDS.

These injuries are caused by the repeated movement of a particular part of the body. The main symptom of an RSI is pain, but tingling, numbness, tightness, burning, swelling and general soreness are often experienced along with a feeling of weakness in the affected area. RSI is linked to the workplace and can also be referred to as occupational overuse syndrome that affects:

  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Nerves (usually in the hands)
  • Fingers
  • Wrists
  • Elbow
  • Shoulders
  • The feet and knees
