Work-related injuries can be either an obvious cause of one’s pain, or an undetected one. Obviously, if pain starts immediately after a traumatic event, such as collision or any physical accident during work, it is easy to associate the pain with that traumatic event.
However, quite often, work-related injuries do not create immediate pain; rather, pain will show up all of the sudden, after damaging processes that build over time. Obviously, if you associate the pain with a sudden, traumatic incident or event, it is important to seek immediate help from a medical professional, so your condition get evaluated promptly, including the possible internal injury or any other body misalignment.
Yet, if you start suffering from pain one morning, and that pain is not going away and even getting worse, it is important that you be seen by a professional that will review your symptoms and evaluate the possibility that the source of your pain is related to your work, in which case it may be considered a work-related injury.
Not less important is the following rule: as in most cases, and regardless of the source of pain, early intervention and plan of care are key to proper recovery, faster!
What can cause a work-related injury? – any activity during the regular course of work, such as lifting, pushing or any repetitive motions, whether in correct or incorrect form; similarly, any incident, such as falling or sliding, or even an accident, during working hours, can result in a work-related injury.
Are there factor contributing to higher risk of work-related Injuries? – those working in more physically demanding jobs or industries, are at a greater risk of being prone to work-related injuries.
How can it be identified that a pain is a result of a work-related Injury?
