Have you been diagnosed with tenosynovitis? Do you believe it was caused due to your working condition? If yes, you may be able to make tenosynovitis claims.
Tenosynovitis is a type of repetitive strain injury resulting from the inflammation of the sheath covering the tendon. The condition causes swelling and a great deal of discomfort
This condition can affect any tendon in the body. But, the most commonly affected as a result of poor working conditions are the tendons on the hands and wrists.
MRI scans, X-Rays and ultrasound can be used to diagnose tenosynovitis. If the condition is diagnosed in a timely manner, it can heal rather quickly. However, is diagnosis is late, it can last for weeks, even for months.
The sufferer can experience a number of symptoms. Some of the common ones include:
- Stiffness in joints
In most cases, these symptoms can be treated with anti-inflammatory medication. Use of antibiotics may be necessary if there is an infection. In severe cases, the sufferer may have to undergo physiotherapy. However, in the worst cases, surgery may be required.
There are a number of professions and occupations where workers are at an increased risk of developing tenosynovitis. Basically, workers who have to perform repetitive tasks or tasks which require repetitive movement of the arms, hands and wrists could develop tenosynovitis.
Some of the industries where workers are prone to developing this condition include construction, carpentry, roofing, office, light fitting, manual handling, poultry processing, light assembly, etc.
