Common reasons for lifting injuries
Lifting injuries in the workplace are often caused when untrained personnel are asked to move heavy equipment without proper training. This can lead to hernias and shoulder injuries. In other cases, employees are forced to help out with a lifting task, despite having an existing injury. This injury is the made worse. The most common lifting injury is to the back. Back injuries can be extremely painful and may result in you needing to take time off work to recover, which can result in lost income.
Lifting injury symptoms
Heavy lifting injury symptoms vary depending on the injury sustained. Pain is the most common symptom and can range from minor discomfort to severe, debilitating pain. Often, pain is temporary, however, some lifting injuries can lead to chronic pain that lasts for months and even years. Back pain can be caused by a sprain, the tearing of a ligament that supports the spine, a pulled muscle or even a fracture or broken bone. If you’re experiencing lifting injury symptoms, don’t hesitate to visit your doctor. He or she can provide an accurate and prompt diagnosis.
