Employees have the potential of getting injured, regardless of how safe their workplace is.
An office may enforce and maintain strict safety policies, and still, an employee has the potential of sustaining some injury.
Common Workplace Injuries
The following information highlights some of the most common workplace injuries treated by our Jonesboro Chiropractors. If you hurt yourself at work, contact AICA Jonesboro as soon as possible to diagnose and treat conditions that have the potential to cause permanent damage if ignored.
Chiropractic Treatment For Slip and Fall Accidents
Most slip and fall accidents are the result of unmarked slippery surfaces and debris. Tripping accidents can also occur because of poor office lighting, cables, uneven floors, and rolled-up floormats.
The most common injuries associated with workplace slip and fall accidents include:
- Shoulder tears
- Tissue damage
- Knee injuries
- Neck sprains
- Spinal damage
- Herniated discs
- Fractured bones
Experiencing any of these injuries can be painful and cause other chronic conditions if left untreated.
Injuries Caused By Distractions
Employees walking through their office or work environment while distracted face the risk of hurting themselves by hitting objects such as glass walls, windows, desks, or doors. Depending on the level of force involved, an employee could experience anything from a concussion to sprained neck.
Injuries Caused By Repetitive Action
Constantly lifting heavy objects, pushing large items, or carrying loads of stuff around increases the chance of experiencing an injury at work. Most injuries caused by repetitive action affect the back, neck, wrist, and hips.
Personal habits and lifestyle choices can influence injuries related to repetitive action, such as being overweight or unflexible.
