Common Injuries and Symptoms
There are many different types of work-related injuries, from slip and falls to being struck by equipment. But one of the most common is repetitive strain injuries. These issues often happen in occupations that involve repetitive tasks or being in awkward positions for hours on end. Some of the symptoms of repetitive strain injuries include:
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
What Causes Workplace Injuries?
Repetitive strain injuries are caused by a gradual buildup of damage when too much stress is put on your muscles, tendons, and nerves. Here are a few factors that are often the root cause behind these injuries:
- Improper posture
- Staying in an awkward position for extended periods
- Working without regular breaks
- Lifting heavy objects
- Being in poor physical condition

Our process always begins by speaking with you one-on-one about your symptoms, history, and goals for your treatment.
