How did I get hurt at work?

If you happen to get hurt at work, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible, as almost any type of injury left untreated may become more serious over time.

Work injuries are characterized as an accident or illness sustained by an employee while working in his or her workplace. Many professions, such as construction, law enforcement, and nursing, can present potentially hazardous situations.

Surprisingly, even office work can result in work-related accidents, as sitting in the same place for extended periods can be taxing on your body. People who work in offices or warehouses are often at risk of repeated injuries because the essence of their occupations necessitates continuous repetition.

Common work-related injuries

There are several specific causes and types of work injuries. Every job has potential health risks, so you need to be aware of how you can  do your work safely and not put your health at risk. 

Some of the most common include:

Back pain

Back pain is the most commonly reported source of pain, and it can be caused by several types of work-related activities.

For example, long periods of inactivity, such as sitting at a desk all day, can lead to back pain. Putting too much force on your back, such as repeatedly lifting heavy items improperly, can also lead to back pain.

Back injuries are typically caused by rotating or twisting the back incorrectly, especially when lifting. If you are experiencing back pain, MoveForwardPT states that receiving early physical therapy is a cost-effective treatment option.

Sprains and strains

Sprains and strains affect the tendons and ligaments. This may occur from trauma, such as tumbling off a ladder, or repeated movements.

They may also emerge as a consequence of inappropriate use of equipment. Physical therapy at Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy may help you minimize or even remove the discomfort of a damaged tendon or ligament, whatever the case may be.

Auto accidents

If you work in a job that requires the use of a vehicle, there is always a risk of a motor vehicle accident injury. Work-related automobile accidents can result in injuries ranging from mild cuts and abrasions to broken bones and severe whiplash.

Physical therapy can help in your recovery from an automobile accident by reducing pain and inflammation, and restoring your range of motion.


Tendinitis is caused by repetitive movements and overuse of specific body parts.

Tenderness, discomfort, and swelling are common symptoms. This disease, which most frequently affects the knees, elbows, and shoulders, is treatable with physical therapy.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome develops when the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed, usually as a result of repeated movements.

Typing and assembly line function are two common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome. According to Harvard Health, seeking care for this disorder as soon as possible is critical to prevent long-term nerve damage.

Light exercises to strengthen the muscles in your hand and forearm, as well as stretches to increase flexibility, can be included in a physical therapy program.
