Dr. Kasprack helps a lot of people from the Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch region that are harmed on the job. According to the National Safety Council, the most common type 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 ordinary type of MSD is a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains are caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by doing repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs are carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back problems.
These injuries can be avoided by using proper lifting techniques, taking frequent breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help avoid injuries by providing their employees educational sources on putting a stop to getting hurt at work.
Back problems and injuries are a ordinary issue that Dr. Kasprack sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with men and women who have shoulder or neck discomfort.
