Work Related Injuries
Whether you have a desk job or do heavy lifting in the warehouse, work-related injuries can occur that require treatment and rehabilitation. Most workplace injuries are caused by repetitive motions that are performed day after day, taking their toll on your body. Not only can a work-related injury keep you from performing your job, but it can also affect your quality of life. Recover quicker from work-related injuries with innovative medical treatments and therapy for chronic pain from the experts at Medici Spine & Pain.
Repetitive Motion Work Injuries
When you use the same group of muscles, tendons or ligaments day in and day out, it can cause strain. Repetitive motion injuries are very common in the workplace. One of the best known is carpal tunnel syndrome, which has affected millions of workers who perform repetitive motions with their fingers, hands and wrists (typing, mechanical work). Other types of repetitive motion injuries include:
- Tennis or golfer’s elbow (straining the tendons/ligaments in the elbow)
- Herniated or bulging spinal discs
- Muscle spasms or lower back injuries
- Ganglion cysts
Many of these injuries occur over time. Symptoms can slowly become worse or come on suddenly.
