Common Work-Related Injuries

Accidents (or diseases) that occur while an employee is on the job are referred to as work-related injuries. Many jobs, including construction, law enforcement, and nursing, can be dangerous occupations.

Surprisingly, even office workers can sustain workplace injuries! Sitting in the same position for long periods is physically demanding, believe it or not.

Give Plumas Physical Therapy a call if you have suffered a work-related injury like any of the ones listed below.

Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

Carpal tunnel syndrome

The carpal tunnel is the median nerve in the wrist. When it becomes compressed, CTS can occur. Compression can occur as a result of repeated movements. Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly caused by typing and assembly line work.

Sprains & strains

Tendons and ligaments are affected by sprains and strains. Sprains and strains can occur as a result of a traumatic event, such as falling from a ladder. These injuries can also occur as a result of repetitive motions. Incorrect use of work equipment can contribute to this type of injury.

Auto accidents

You are at risk of being injured in a car accident if you work at a job that requires the use of a vehicle. Work-related automotive accidents can result in injuries ranging from minor cuts and abrasions to fractured bones and whiplash. Physical therapy, fortunately, can aid in your recovery from a car accident by reducing pain and inflammation and restoring range of motion.

Back pain

If you incorrectly rotate or twist your back, you could suffer a back injury. This type of pain occurs after prolonged periods of inactivity, such as sitting at a desk all day. Also, if you exert too much force on your back, such as lifting heavy objects incorrectly regularly, a back injury can occur.


Repetitive movements and the overuse of particular body parts cause tendinitis. The most common joints affected by this condition are the elbows, shoulders, and knees. Tenderness, discomfort, and swelling are common symptoms of tendonitis.
