Skeptics of cumulative trauma injuries try to denigrate the integrity of an entire class of working Californians. They claim because of a few “bad apples”, all such claims “aren’t valid”.
But you know the truth – heavy physical work overtime could take a toll on your body, and medical studies confirm it.
The bottom line is that a skeptic doesn’t experience the pain you wake up with every morning.
Take the largest joint in the body – your knee.
Many work activities require heavy use of your knees, and some workers eventually experience pain, swelling, “clicking” or popping in one or both knees. The doctor’s diagnosis could be:
- Sprain or strain
- ACL, PCL or MCL damage
- Meniscus Tear
- Tibia or fibula fractures
Treatment for these injuries could include surgery, prescription medication, physical therapy, heat/ice, steroid injections, knee braces, and even total knee replacement.

If you are experiencing knee pain as a result of an on-the-job accident or work-induced joint stress you have rights, regardless of what a skeptic might “think”.
