The workplace can be a dangerous place – even in seemingly benign occupations. Physical labor and repetitive motions are responsible for a bevy of workman’s compensation claims every year in the U.S. Though a person can develop nearly any type of injury on the job, certain workman’s comp injuries are more common than others. Some of the most prevalent injuries in the workplace include:
- Herniated discs
- Muscle Sprains
- Soft Tissue Strains
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Did you know…back pain is the most common injury in the workplace? It is the single most frequent reason Americans call into work year after year. Whether due to long periods of standing or frequent heavy lifting, the muscles, discs and vertebrae of the upper and lower back are very sensitive to injury. Chiropractic is highly effective for treating back pain and preventing it from returning again.
