According to the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), more than 12 people die every day from a work-related injury. In addition, approximately three to four out of every 100 workers are injured or deal with a workplace illness annually. With numbers like these, you may easily find yourself victim to a workplace injury. Luckily, a few visits to your Keizer chiropractor can help with many of them.
Common Work Injuries
The type of work-related injury that you are likely to sustain depends largely upon your profession. For instance, if you are in construction, you may have a greater chance of hurting your back while doing heavy lifting whereas office workers often find the cause of their back pain to be relative to their sedentary job.
Additionally, repetitive motions which are fairly common with factory or manufacturing work and constant typing can result in overuse injuries like tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. There is a wide array of other work injuries that can be sustained, all of which may threaten your financial livelihood.
