Types Of Work-Related Injuries

An accident or disease that occurs while the employee is on the job is referred to as a work-related injury. Many occupations, such as construction, law enforcement, and nursing, can be hazardous.

Surprisingly, even office employees can suffer work-related injuries because sitting in the same position for long periods of time is physically demanding.

Some of the most common include: 

Auto accidents

If you work in a profession that requires the use of a vehicle, you are constantly in danger of being injured in a car accident. Injuries from work-related automotive accidents can range from minor cuts and abrasions to fractured bones and severe whiplash. 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, which usually happens as a result of repetitive movements. Typing and assembly line work are two common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome. According to Harvard Health, treatment for this illness should be sought as soon as possible to avoid long-term nerve damage.

 

Back pain

Back injuries are typically caused by rotating or twisting the back incorrectly. Back pain can be caused by 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 and strains

Tendons and ligaments are affected by sprains and strains. This might happen as a result of trauma, such as falling from a ladder, or through repeated motions, or as a result of improper equipment use

 

Tendinitis

Tendonitis is caused by repetitive movements and overuse of specific body parts, most frequently affecting the knees, elbows, and shoulders. Common symptoms include tenderness, discomfort, and swelling are common symptoms.
