It may sound like an odd question, but do you take your knees for granted? Most of us are guilty of doing this – unless and until we suffer an injury to one or both knees. A right knee injury can completely change the way you take on daily tasks until it is fully healed. There are all kinds of ways you might suffer an injury to your knee. While doing this at work is rare, there are individuals who have injured their knee while working.
Any injury to the knee can be very painful. The worse it is, the more likely it is you will have a longer recovery time. This may mean you cannot work, and you may not be able to do all the things you usually would at home and in your leisure time either.
Could your right knee injury have been prevented?
Sometimes, a knee injury may occur that should not have had a chance to happen. In the workplace, for example, you may sustain an injury to your knee if you use incorrect lifting techniques. If your employer did not provide manual handling training, this could mean they were negligent in not doing all they could to prevent such injuries from happening.
You may also bang your knee on a hazard protruding out into your workspace that should not have been there. Alternatively, you may have experienced a slip, trip or fall. Anything like this could result in you falling on your knee and injuring it. This could mean bruising, a fractured kneecap or a dislocation, or a tear in a ligament in your knee.
