- Neck Injuries (sprains, strains, joint dysfunction)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Headaches (caused by muscle tension & joint dysfunction)
- Rotator Cuff & Elbow Ligament Tears

Most Common Injuries are Back Injuries & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -- CTS
Not all work-related injuries happen in the construction industry. In fact, quite a number of injuries we treat occurred in the office. Carpal tunnel syndrome and chronic neck pain can be caused by poor ergonomics or poor posture. One misstep on a wet break room floor could lead to a herniated disc. Improper lifting of a heavy box could result in chronic back pain.
One of the most common work injuries we handle on a regular basis is a back injury, which is usually the result of a herniated disc, although poor posture can exacerbate back pain. Many of our patients spend hours sitting at a computer, which strains muscles causing stiffness and soreness. Sometimes the solution is as simple as fixing poor ergonomics at the office, including adjusting chair height, moving the computer to a different spot, or providing back support.
Hours spent on the computer can cause another type of workplace injury known as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Patients suffering from this painful condition feel a burning sensation and experience difficulty gripping objects. Swelling around the median nerve in the wrist causes pain from pressure placed on the nerve.
