Dr. Dahlager sees quite a few men and women from the Noblesville area who are hurt on the job. According to the National Safety Council, the most routine type of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace accidents.
The most common type of MSD is a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by engaging in repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.
These injuries can be prevented by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking many breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help put a stop to injuries by giving their employees educational data on how to avoid getting hurt at work.
Back problems and injuries are a ordinary issue that Dr. Dahlager sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with individuals who have shoulder or neck pain.
If you are suffering from a work injury or accident and live in the Noblesville area, give Dr. Dahlager a call and make an appointment today. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you recover and do our best to have you back on the job as soon as we can!
