Haque Chiropractic Inc. treats quite a few men and women from the Livermore region that are injured while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most usual kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which include injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace accidents.
The most usual type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by repetitive movements. Other common MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back discomfort.
These injuries can be stopped by using correct lifting techniques, taking several breaks and using ergonomic devices. Employers can also help put a stop to injuries by giving their employees educational data on preventing getting hurt at work.
Back problems and injuries are a ordinary problem that Haque Chiropractic Inc. sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with patients who have shoulder or neck problems.
If you have sustained a work injury or accident and live in the Livermore community, give Haque Chiropractic Inc. a call and make an appointment today. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you get relief and do our best to have you back on the job as soon as possible!
