Chanatry Chiropractic sees a lot of men and women from the Jacksonville community who are hurt on the job. According to the National Safety Council, the most frequent type of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which include trauma to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace accidents.
The most common type of MSD is a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs are carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.
These injuries can be prevented by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking many breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help prevent injuries by giving their employees educational data on preventing getting hurt at work.
Back discomfort and injuries are a routine issue that Chanatry Chiropractic sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with people who have shoulder or neck pain.
If you have had a work injury or accident and live in the Jacksonville area, give Chanatry Chiropractic a call and make an appointment today. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you recover and do our best to have you back on the job as fast as we can!
