Holtsville Chiropractic Care Helps Reduce Missed Days at Work

Dr. Cohen sees quite a few men and women from the Holtsville area that are injured at work. According to the National Safety Council, the most ordinary type of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which include injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace injuries.

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 doing repetitive movements. Other common MSDs involve carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.

These injuries can be stopped by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking many breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help put a stop to injuries by providing their employees educational sources on putting a stop to getting hurt on the job.
