Work injuries can be extremely devastating, not only emotionally and physically, but financially as well. The most common types of work-related injuries involve the back and neck. Back and neck injuries account for nearly 90 percent of injuries that occur in the work place. The goal is to heal the injured worker, so they can return to their daily activities in the safest manner possible.
Many work-related injuries are caused by regular, everyday activities on the job. Most occupations require an employee to perform the same movements with their body constantly during employment hours. These repetitive motions, over time, may produce trauma in the body. Repetitive stress injuries (like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) are some of the most common work related injuries we deal with. These injuries are hard to indicate right away because the onset is very gradual. Repetitive stress injuries can be very serious injuries that are the main cause of absent employees in the work place, and it is the biggest expense in worker’s compensation.
Repetitive Stress and Overuse Injuries
The most common forms of work injury are from repetitive stress and overuse. Small tasks done with poor posture can create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes or even continuous typing can cause both acute and chronic pain to arise. Even if you are using correct posture, the simple act of doing the same movement day in and day out can create major problems over time.
