Work related injuries
Tendinitis Tendinitis is an injury in which the muscle gets inflamed or irritated due to the repetition of movements made in awrong posture or over use of the muscle. Its most frequent symptom is the pain right in the insertion point of the muscle.

Carpal Tunnel syndrome It is to be called like this due to the eight bones inthe wrist called carpals, which form a similar structure to a tunnel. This tunnel is filled with flexing tendons which control the movement of the fingers. It also provides a way so that the mediannerve gets to the sensorial hand cells. Flexing and extending the wrist repeatedly might cause that the protecting cover that surrounds every tendon swells. These swelled covers pressure the mediannerve and cause the CTS . Some of its symptoms are numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the thumb and fingers, particularly the index and middle fingers, which are affected by the median nerve.Tennis elbow Is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. It is commonly associated with playing tennis and other racquet sports, though the injury can happen to almostanybody. Tennis elbow is also known as lateral epicondylitis or "inflammation of the outside elbow bone")

Because of the force of the muscle, the points of insertion of the tendon on the bone are oftenpointed prominences. The medical names of Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and Golfer's Elbow (medial epicondylitis) come from the names of these bony prominences where the tendons insert, and wherethe inflammation causes the pain. The pain of golfer's elbow is usually at the elbow joint on the inside of the arm; a shooting sensation down the forearm is also common while gripping objects....
