Vibration White Finger » Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)


The most commonly heard of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) are probably Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and tendonitis, although Vibration White Finger (VWF) may also be included under this umbrella term.

RSI is a term used to describe musculoskeletal disorders that are commonly caused by a combination of stress, adopting a poor posture and undertaking repetitive motions.

These types of personal injury usually occur in the workplace. When considering VWF, a poor posture may be adopted while operating heavy tools such as pneumatic drills and chainsaws and the repetitive motion may be attributed to the vibratory nature of the tools and machinery used.

Characteristics of RSI may include pain and swelling from the hands right through the arms and into the back neck and shoulders. One key symptom of Vibration White Finger is that the fingers turn white or blue as the blood vessels in the hands become constricted and circulation decreases. This is often accompanied by a tingling feeling and can even lead to a complete loss of sensation through nerve damage.

Discomfort will worsen during cold weather and during periods of using vibrating tools. Suffering should ease when the worker takes a break from his task, especially during a substantial amount of time away from work.

With RSI, the sooner the disorder is identified, the sooner the root of the problem is sourced and the sooner the patient stops doing the thing that triggered their personal injury, the more chance there is of recovery.

However, VWF is permanent. As soon as it is diagnosed, patients should cease using the vibrating machinery that caused their condition, so as not to cause further aggravation. They should also try keeping the damaged areas warm to reduce suffering.
