    A summary of my enquiry and what I am looking to achieve is:

    Summary of “repetitive strain injury” medical conditions

    The more common repetitive strain injury conditions are:

    • Bursitis (occupational causes are rare but Bursitis at the elbow is a prescribed disease).
    • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (rarely successful in occupational claims unless following tenosynovitis. Prescribed disease where contracted as a result of use of a hand-held vibrating tool).
    • Cellulitis (or “best hand”) (DSS prescribed disease).
    • Epicondylitis (also referred to as “tennis elbow” or “golfer’s elbow”).
    • Diffuse Fibromyalgia.
    • Ganglions (on their own, they are unlikely to be the basis of a viable claim).
    • Peritendinitis Crepitans (one of the so-called original classic RSI conditions).
    • Rotator Cuff Syndrome (unlikely to be a viable claim).
    • Tendinitis/Tendonitis (one of the so-called original classic RSI conditions).
    • Tenosynovitis (DSS prescribed disease).
    • Trigger Finger/Thumb.
    • Writers Cramp (DSS prescribed disease).
