Examples of Work Injury and Leading Risk Factors
As you might imagine, a work injury is more likely to occur in certain jobs and career fields including construction, first responder, agricultural, manufacturing, and industrial. These are fields where employees are often performing manual labor, lifting heavy objects, and operating heavy machinery.
Office jobs can also lead to a work injury. While heavy lifting, twisting, falls, and repetitive movements are leading risk factors for a work injury, other risk factors include sedentary behavior, poor posture, stress, poor nutrition, and even poor sleep. Such factors can affect people from all careers and backgrounds.
Common work injures we see among our hardworking patients include:
- Muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendon inflammation, and other soft tissue injuries
- Disc herniation, disc bulge, or degenerative disc disease
- Nerve compression in the spine (e.g., sciatica) or in the arms or leg (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, piriformis syndrome)
- Back pain and neck pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tension headaches
Depending on the cause and nature of a work injury, signs and symptoms like pain and stiffness may come on suddenly or gradually. Work injuries often disrupt patients’ lives outside of work in addition to disrupting work routine.
