Tendinitis: causes, symptoms, treatments

Residents of Illinois who are over the age of 40 should be aware of a condition called tendinitis: the inflammation or irritation of the tendons, especially those in the elbow, shoulder, hips, knees, Achilles tendon and base of the thumb. As people age, their tendons become less elastic, less tolerant of stress and more vulnerable to tears. Combine this with repetitive impacts, no matter how mild, as well as more serious injuries, and people raise their risk for tendinitis.

The dangers of working in the sanitation industry

According to the Solid Waste Association of North America, there were seven sanitation worker deaths in the first 10 days of 2018. Overall, Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that sanitation workers face a fatality risk that's nearly 10 times more than that of all other industries. However, there are steps that these workers in Illinois and throughout the country can take to stay safe on the job.

Don’t hesitate to negotiate workers’ compensation benefits

After an on-the-job injury, you probably have the grounds to file a workers' compensation claim, which is both good news and potentially bad news. Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that protects both employees and employers, but without paying careful attention to the benefits that you receive, your coverage may benefit your employer far more than it benefits you.
