Work-related injuries and conditions are commonly treated by physiotherapists. Work-related injuries can range from repetitive sprain syndromes, back injuries due to lifting and carrying, falls and more serious injuries. Not only can our physiotherapists in Toronto assist you at sports injuries, but they can also assist you at work-related injuries. Our goal is to control pain, control inflammation, rehabilitate your condition with exercise programs and ultimately help you to get back to work safely and equipped with the knowledge to prevent further injuries. We will teach you best postures and help you with workstation set up to minimize the effects of static postures or repetitive movements on your body. Whether it be lifting technique improvement, education programs or workstation setups, your skilled physiotherapist is able to offer adequate advice and education to manage or prevent pain and discomfort with work.
Work-related injuries range from repetitive strain injuries to muscles and tendons to fractures and mild traumatic brain injuries due to falling or tripping. It also includes lower back pain due to prolonged sitting in the wrong posture, also known as the neck/upper back/upper limb injuries (NUBUL). These injuries can result while sitting, standing, lifting and handling. Although work-related injuries vary significantly in severity and involved area, one common complaint is pain and disability caused by pain and injury.
