Work Injuries and Their Causes

Workplaces can pose both obvious hazards and subtle long-term threats to your wellbeing. While some kinds of work injuries can put you on the disabled list in the wink of an eye, others may take months or even years to interfere with your functionality. Let's look at the two main categories of work injury:

Work Injury Accident Injury

A work injury accident injury can be as traumatic as it is sudden. A fall from a wobbly ladder, for instance, can jam joints and force your back painfully out of its vertebral alignment. Slip and fall incidents, another cause of acute back and neck injuries, are as common as those invisible puddles of water on a break-room floor. Extreme lifting or twisting stresses can tear major muscle groups or sprain ligaments. Taxi or delivery drivers caught in collisions may suffer from whiplash. 

Repetitive Motion Work Injury

Repetitive motion work injuries are the end result of chronic overuse. For example, office personnel and others who work with their hands frequently suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome related to wrist inflammation. Awkwardly-placed cabinets and monitors can cause twisting strain and neck or shoulder pain. Workers who stand on their feet all day may experience plantar fasciitis in their arches, especially if their gait or stance is unbalanced.
