Some of the most common injuries that happen at work include:
If you're a working professional and rely on your car for work, there is always the risk of getting into an accident. Motor vehicle accidents can result in injuries ranging from mild cuts to broken bones or severe whiplash -- which all need treatment. They help reduce pain and inflammation while restoring range of motion and reducing pain.
Sprains and strains
Sprains and strains are common injuries that can occur to the tendons or ligaments. They may happen because we use improper equipment or strain ourselves for too long doing the same thing. At Heal Physiotherapy & Chiropractic North York, we make sure you get the right treatment but also that you know what you need at work to stay healthy throughout your career.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a very common condition that occurs when the median nerve in your wrist becomes compressed. The most common causes are repetitive motions like typing or assembly line work, which can make you feel pain and discomfort near one of its passages to nearby muscles.
According to this study, you should get treatment as soon as possible to avoid long term damage. A treatment program may include light exercises to strengthen the muscles in your hand and wrist, as well as stretches to improve flexibility.
Tendinitis develops through repetitive motions and excessive overuse of certain body parts. Symptoms typically include tenderness, pain, and swelling. This condition most commonly occurs in the knees, elbows, and shoulders, and can be corrected with physiotherapy and chiropractic.
Back pain is the most common type of issue we see caused by work. Pain in your back can be caused by several work-related activities. For example, prolonged periods sitting at a desk all day may lead to back problems whereas repeated heavy lifting could cause issues as well if not done correctly with the right body mechanics. Back injuries are typically caused by rotating or twisting the back in an incorrect way, especially when lifting. If you are experiencing back pain, our personalized treatment plans will have you feeling better and stronger so that you can enjoy work again without pain.
