Common Workplace Injuries

We often tend to think that only manual laborers suffer from chronic pains. However, even if you have an office job, you’re prone to chronic musculoskeletal strain. Example of common workplace injuries treated with chiropractic care includes

  • Injuries from repetitive motions: Although you may not consider a repetitive motion, such as typing or packing boxes to be dangerous, it can cause chronic pain, muscle strain, and long-term conditions like tendonitis.
  • Being hit by falling objects: Depending on where you work, you run the risk of being hit by a flying object or knocking on objects while moving around. This can cause injuries to your neck, back, head, and foot.
  • Slip and fall injuries: Falling from a height or tripping and slipping on an uneven surface or a wet floor can cause severe injuries on different parts of your body. This becomes a crisis. Not only for your earning ability, but also your overall function, comfort, and quality of life.
  • Back or neck strain: Often caused by ergonomic problems and awkward work postures, it is common among users of too-low computer monitors and mobile devices.
  • Overexertion: Jobs that involve too much lifting, pulling, throwing, holding, and carrying heavy objects can cause you to overexert yourself. This can lead to strained muscles, physical burnout, chronic pain, and more…
  • Other Workplace Injuries: Chiropractic care goes beyond treating the obvious back and neck problems. Other conditions that a chiropractor can help with include bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), and rotator cuff injuries.
