Villagers wishing to launch a Coedpoeth accident at work compensation claim for a back injury they’ve sustained in the workplace are welcome to use the compensation claim service that we offer here at Accident Advice Helpline. It’s the one that is famously recommended by the former consumers’ watchdog champion, Esther Rantzen.
The warehousing and distribution industry in nearby Wrexham
Most of the Coedpoeth villagers who go out to work tend to commute to nearby Wrexham. There’s not much employment here in the village apart from a few opportunities in retail and catering and hospitality. Wrexham however offers a large range of employment options in loads of different industries including warehousing and distribution.
Manual handling and musculoskeletal injuries
Although there are many mechanical aids such as forklift trucks, pallet trucks etc. there still a lot of manual lifting to be done in warehousing; it’s the nature of beast. It does mean however, that workers are very susceptible to picking up musculoskeletal injuries relating to the work they do. One of the most common injuries, (also one of the most painful), is any sort of back injury. The other problem with getting your back injured is that once a weakness appears, it often tends to reappear at various times throughout your working life.
The majority of back pain isn’t caused by any particularly serious damage. Any resultant pain normally disappears after a few weeks, or subsides down to a level where you can get on with some sort of work again. In cases where the pain is relatively severe, or where it gets worse as the days go by, it is recommended that you should go and see your GP.
The importance of keeping your back mobile
Where a lot of people go wrong with back pain is that they immediately lie themselves up for a few days. In actual fact this is one of the worst things you can do because your back is designed to be mobile, and immobilising it can actually exacerbate the pain, or allow the inflammation to deepen, and lengthen the amount of time it takes to fully recover.
