Common types of work injuries
There are several specific causes and types of work injuries. Some of the most common include:
Back pain is the most commonly reported work-related source of pain, and it can be caused by several work-related activities. For example, long periods of inactivity, such as sitting at a desk all day, can lead to back pain. Conversely, too much force on your back, such as repeatedly lifting heavy items can also lead to back pain.
Tendinitis occurs from the excessive overloading of the tendons, causing them to become inflamed and hypersensitive. Symptoms typically include tenderness, pain, and swelling. This condition most commonly occurs in the knees, elbows, and shoulders, and can be corrected with physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
The main job of the carpal tunnel is to protect the median nerve on the inside of your wrist, as well as the tendons you use to bend the fingers. However, it is possible for this tunnel to become constricted, and when it does, nerve compression can result, leading to a variety of symptoms, such as numbness and tingling in the thumb, 1st, and 2nd fingers. In addition to pain in the wrist and hand, swelling in the hand and fingers is even possible. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can be caused by an injury or by repetitive job-related use, such as assembly-line work, keyboard-heavy work, or driving heavy machinery. A rehabilitation program may include stretching and light exercises to strengthen the muscles in your hand and wrist.
Sprains and strains
Sprains and strains can occur throughout the body, affecting the tendons and ligaments. These can occur from trauma, such as falling off a ladder, or repetitive motions. They can also occur as a result of improper use of equipment. Whatever the case may be, physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy at Leaps and Bounds: Performance Rehabilitation can help you eliminate the pain and dysfunction from an injured muscle, tendon, or ligament.
If you work in a job that requires the use of a vehicle, there is always a risk of a motor vehicle accident injury. Work-related automobile accidents can result in injuries ranging from mild cuts and abrasions to broken bones and severe whiplash. Physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy can help in your recovery from an automobile accident by reducing pain and inflammation, and restoring your range of motion.
