There are a multitude of ways to injure yourself at work as there are many different occupations. The most important thing when dealing with a work-related injury is that you don't leave it until it requires more serious intervention or leads to an untreatable problem. We will discuss some of the risk factors involved with common work injuries and how chiropractic care can help you to heal from them.
Have You Been Injured At Work?
Repetitive Stress and Overuse Injuries
The most common forms of work injury are from repetitive stress and overuse. Repetitive minor tasks done with poor posture can create big problems over time. Lifting and twisting while moving boxes or even continuous typing on a computer can cause issues to arise over time. Even if you are using correct biomechanics and are aware of your posture, the simple act of doing the same movement daily can create major problems over time.
