Reversible median nerve impairment after three weeks of repetitive work

Little is known about the time relation between entry into a job with high mechanical exposures and median nerve affection. We found that 22 days of seasonal repetitive work led to impaired sensory and motor nerve conduction with recovery within 3-6 weeks post-season. If related to newly increased exposures, median nerve affection is most likely reversible if exposures are reduced.
