At Sun Chiropractic, we believe that prevention is the key to avoiding common work-related musculoskeletal injuries. Whether you sit at a desk all day or work in a physically demanding job, it's important to take steps to protect your body from injury.

Common work-related injuries can include strains, sprains, and repetitive motion injuries. These types of injuries often affect the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the body and can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.

Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

Lower back pain:

This is one of the most common work-related injuries and can be caused by poor posture, lifting heavy objects, and sitting for extended periods of time.

Carpal tunnel syndrome:

This is a common repetitive motion injury that affects the hands and wrists. It's often caused by typing or using a computer mouse for extended periods of time.

Neck and shoulder pain:

Poor posture and long periods of sitting can cause neck and shoulder pain, as well as tension headaches.
Plantar fasciitis: This is a common injury that affects the feet and is often caused by standing for long periods of time without proper support.

To avoid these types of injuries, it's important to take steps to protect your body while at work. Here are some tips from our team at Sun Chiropractic on how to avoid workplace injuries:

1.     Practice Good Ergonomics:

Ensure your workspace is set up properly to support good posture and reduce the risk of injury. This might include adjusting your chair and desk height, using an ergonomic mouse or keyboard, and taking frequent breaks to stretch and move around.

2.     Lift with Your Legs:

When lifting heavy objects, always use proper lifting techniques. This means bending at the knees and using your leg muscles to lift the object rather than straining your back.

3.     Wear Proper Footwear:

If your job requires standing for long periods of time, be sure to wear supportive shoes with good arch support. This can help reduce the risk of foot and ankle injuries.

4.     Take Breaks Often:

Whether you're sitting at a desk or working on your feet, it's important to take frequent breaks to stretch and move around. This can help prevent muscle stiffness and reduce the risk of injury.

If you do experience a work-related injury, it's important to seek treatment as soon as possible. At Sun Chiropractic, we offer a variety of treatments that can help relieve pain and promote healing, including chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and more.
