Types Of Work-Related Injuries
Work-related injuries are accidents (or diseases) that develop while an employee is on the job. Many occupations, such as construction, law enforcement, and nursing, can be hazardous.
Surprisingly, even office employees can suffer work-related injuries! Believe it or not, sitting in the same position for long periods is physically demanding.
If you’ve sustained a work-related injury like any of the ones below, give Synergy Physical Therapy a call.
Types of work-related injuries
Some of the most common include:
You are in danger of being injured in a car accident if you work a job that requires using a vehicle. Injuries from work-related automotive accidents can range from minor cuts and abrasions to fractured bones and whiplash. Luckily, physical therapy can help in your recovery from an automobile accident by reducing pain and inflammation, and restoring your range of motion.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed. Compression can happen as a result of repetitive movements. Typing and assembly line work are two common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Back injuries can be caused by rotating or twisting the back incorrectly. This type of pain happens after long periods of inactivity, such as sitting at a desk all day or exerting too much force on your back, such as lifting heavy objects incorrectly repeatedly.
Sprains & strains
Sprains and strains affect your tendons and ligaments. This might happen as a result of trauma, such as falling from a ladder. These injuries can also occur through repeated motions. Using work equipment incorrectly can also cause this kind of injury.
Tendonitis is caused by repetitive movements and the overuse of specific body parts. This condition most frequently affects the knees, elbows, and shoulders. Common symptoms include tenderness, discomfort, and swelling.
