What are the most common work injuries?
While you may get hurt at work slipping and falling, or trying to lift something that is too heavy, most work injuries that are seen by a chiropractor are injuries sustained because of chronic misuse of your body. Sitting for long periods of time, repetitive motion injuries, strains and sprains are often the most treated work injuries. People who work at a computer all day, and those that work at machinery doing the same tasks repeatedly are at risk for headaches, tendonitis, muscle strain and sprain.
