Workplace injuries don’t only occur during traumatic slips and falls at work. More often than not, they are the result of repetitive movements. This can be caused by doing the physical demands required of your job over an extended period of time. These types of workplace injuries are all too common in today’s workforce and are best identified by their symptoms.
Symptoms of a workplace injury can include:
- Lower back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Carpal tunnel and hand pain
- Disc injuries
- Sciatica (pain caused by the sciatic nerve in your lower back and legs)
- Joint pain
