Common Work Related Injuries
From working at a desk all day to lifting heavy objects, many injuries can occur. The most common injuries we typically see at our practice are:
- Slip and Falls: No matter what your job is, slip and fall accidents are notorious for causing people to miss out on work. This accident injury can lead to headaches, dizziness, fractures, and spinal cord injuries.
- Improper Ergonomics: From leaning forward to slouching for long periods, poor ergonomics can affect your spine, and cause a herniated disc, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or radial tunnel syndrome.
- Muscle Strains: Lifting heavy objects can make you prone to straining your muscles. This is a frequent work injury that can make you miss several days at work.
- Repetitive Strain Injury: Anyone working with computers all day is at risk of developing a repetitive strain injury like carpal tunnel syndrome. The pain and numbness and tingling feeling can affect how you perform your tasks.
