Work Injuries: How Your Job Slowly Kills You
When people think of work injuries, they tend to imagine construction workers and manual laborers.
While those types of injuries are indeed serious, no job is immune to repetitive use injuries.
It’s important for all workers to take a proactive approach to posture and musculoskeletal health to avoid injuries on the job and maintain good health. Routine chiropractic care can help.
No Job is Immune to Repetitive Use Injuries
Over 2.8 million Americans reported a work injury in 2017. A majority of reported injury cases come from production and manufacturing jobs where the injury is often sudden and very obviously attributed to work.
In many cases, however, injuries go unreported because workers may not believe the pain qualifies as a job-related injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome, keyboard fatigue, neck pain, back pain, eye strain-induced headaches, and other conditions stemming from computer use or sitting at a desk all qualify as repetitive use injuries.
Although these workplace injuries take longer to develop than others, that doesn’t mean they aren’t serious.
