Work related Injuries

Work related injuries are the ones that happen while you are at your workplace or at any event or place related to your work.

Often most injuries are musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) which are painful conditions of muscles, tendons, and nerves.

Causes of work-related injuries:

  • Fixed or constrained work postures & movements,
  • Repetition of movements,
  • Insufficient rest time,
  • Overuse of body parts eg. hands, force of movement at work etc…..

Common conditions suffered are:

  • Back injury and back pain, neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Spine disc prolapse and many more….
