Montero Chiropractic Clinic sees many individuals from the Yuma area that are injured on the job. According to the National Safety Council, the most ordinary kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace accidents.
The most common type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains are caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by doing repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs involve carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.
These injuries can be avoided by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking several breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help prevent injuries by providing their employees educational data on preventing them.
Back pain and injuries are a frequent issue that Montero Chiropractic Clinic sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with folks who have shoulder or neck pain.
