Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps a lot of patients from the Harrisburg region that are harmed while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most ordinary kind 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 frequent type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by engaging in repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs involve carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back discomfort.
These injuries can be prevented by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking frequent breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help prevent injuries by providing their employees educational data on preventing these injuries.
Back pain and injuries are a ordinary problem that Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with individuals who have shoulder or neck pain.
