Common Causes of Workplace Injury

Many common causes of work injuries have a high likelihood of hurting the back, spine or neck. Chief among injury causes are:

  • Repetitive physical motion
  • Slips and falls
  • Frequent or heavy lifting
  • Overexertion while pushing, pulling, or carrying heavy objects
  • Prolonged unnatural posture due to physically demanding activity
  • Repeated exposure to mechanical vibrations

Such events can cause lower back pain, repetitive motion stress injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraine headaches, ruptured or prolapsed disc vertebrae (commonly called slipped discs), sciatica and numbness or tingling in the limbs. If you experience any such symptoms, you may need the help of a work injury chiropractor.
