Dr. Elganainy helps quite a few folks from the Burton region that are injured while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most routine kind 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 injuries.
The most usual type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains are caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by repetitive movements. Other common MSDs involve carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.
These injuries can be stopped by using proper lifting techniques, taking several breaks and using ergonomic devices. Employers can also help prevent injuries by providing their employees educational data on how to avoid these injuries.
Back issues and injuries are a usual issue that Dr. Elganainy sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with people who have shoulder or neck pain.
If you have sustained a work injury or accident and live in the Burton region, give Dr. Elganainy a call and schedule an appointment today. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you get relief and do our best to get you back on the job as soon as we can!
