Question: Has anyone else suffered the same injury as me using a mouse for long periods without proper ergonomic workstation. I have a tear in my supra spinatus tendon which is a partial thickness tear and is very painful, I need surgery to fix. The pain started in my neck and spread to my shoulder and then to my arm, elbow and into my hands at times. My employer was advised by one specialist to get an ultrasound and x-ray for me in early 1997 but they did not (I never found out until afterwards of this advise). I carried on working until May 1998 and was then made redundant (whilst still on work cover for medical expenses). I know the law is different in the UK, but I just wanted to find out if anyone else had suffered this particular injury.
