Workplace Injury Treatment in Scranton, PA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

You Shouldn’t Have to Experience Pain in the Workplace

Take comfort in the knowledge that you are not the only one if you are experiencing pain as a result of a workplace accident. Workplace pain impacts countless workers and ends up costing their employers billions annually in workmen’s compensation cases and in lost productivity.

Often times though, a lot of occupations can place substantial demands on your body, particularly your back, and neck. And you don’t need to be a nurse, construction worker or a factor worker to be in danger for workplace pain. Even normal office work can sometimes result in back pain and other job-related issues.

Lost Work

Around 186 million work days are lost yearly because of back pain alone. This has a profound effect on productivity and labor costs.

And even though back pain is the most common type of workplace injury, other risks consist of overexertion, falls and recurring motion traumas.

In 2012, the Liberty Mutual insurance company performed a workplace safety study. They established the cost of the most disabling workplace injuries and illnesses amounted to $51.1 billion annually in the form of workmen’s compensation expenses. That’s nearly $1 billion per week!

Contributing Factors

In one more study, the Mayo Clinic had a look at the most common factors that brought about workplace pain:

  • Force— Lifting heavy objects can exert too much force on your back, leading to injury.
  • Repetition— When you repeat certain movements again and again, it can easily result in muscle fatigue and injury. If you are stretching to the limit of your range of motion or utilizing an uncomfortable body position, this is especially true.
  • Posture– Muscle fatigue and injury also can possibly be brought on by slouching, which exaggerates your back’s curves.
  • Stress— Tension at work can increase your stress and anxiety. This has been specifically linked to muscle tension , which can then cause back pain or make back injuries worse.

Adverse Effects of Workplace Injuries

Lower back pain and other workplace injuries can affect other areas of your life. Because they feel their career may be threatened if they report their pain, most people with workplace injuries return to work even despite the fact that they are in pain.

Others are concerned about whether their injury will prevent them from continuing to work. And others spend so much time taking care of flare-ups and treating their injuries on their own, that they ignore other important aspects of their lives, like their families and social life.
