Common Examples of Work Injury

A work injury can affect both manual laborers and office workers alike. Some of the most common types include:

  • Neck pain: specific conditions include whiplash (a syndrome caused by rapid flexion and extension of the neck) or tech neck (cervical stiffness and pain due to prolonged slouching over a smart phone or computer)
  • Shoulder pain: often due to rotator cuff strains, tendonitis, or impingement syndrome (compression of tendons as they pass into the shoulder)
  • Back pain: often due to issues such as joint misalignments, spinal ligament sprains, disc herniation or bulges, or core weakness
  • Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve in the low back, causing pain, numbness, and weakness in the buttocks and leg
  • Plantar fasciitis: inflammation of the underside of the foot, causing sharp heel pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: compression of the median nerve as it passes through the wrist; symptoms include numbness and pain in the first few fingers of the hand (a person may need to frequently "shake out" their hands)

Risk Factors & Symptoms of Work Injury

Most of us spend quite a bit of our time at work, and many of the tasks we perform on the clock can put us at risk for injury. Some of the most common risk factors we've seen for work injury among our patients include:

  • Poor ergonomics at the desk
  • Poor lifting techniques or body mechanics during physical tasks
  • Repetitive overhead movement
  • Slips and falls
  • Excessive standing or sitting with inadequate rest
