How did I get hurt at work?

If you happen to get hurt at work, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible, as almost any type of injury left untreated may become more serious over time.

Work injuries are characterized as an accident or illness sustained by an employee while working in their workplace. Many professions, such as construction, law enforcement, and nursing, can present potentially hazardous situations.

Surprisingly, even office work can result in work-related accidents, as sitting in the same place for extended periods can be taxing on your body. People who work in offices or warehouses are often at risk of repeated injuries because the essence of their occupations necessitates continuous repetition.

Common work-related injuries

While there are many specific causes and types of work injuries, some of the most common include:

Back pain

Did you know that back pain is one of the most common reasons people miss work? And it’s the leading cause of disability worldwide.

Fortunately, if you’ve injured your back at work, early intervention with physical therapy at Cedar Hill Physical Therapy and Wellness Center can be a very beneficial and cost-effective treatment option.

Paul the Physical Therapist is the only therapist in Greensboro, NC to have earned the advanced diploma in the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT). The McKenzie Method is trusted and used by clinicians and patients all over the world for common back, neck and extremity musculoskeletal problems. Paul is also the area’s leading expert on Stabilization Training in the rehabilitation of low back pain.

Through the use of customized exercises, stabilization training, posture refinement, and body mechanics education, back pain can very often subside without the use of opioid medications or surgery.

Sprains and strains

A sprain occurs when a ligament- the bands of fibrous tissue that connects two bones together- is stretched or torn.

A strain occurs when there is injury to a muscle or tendon- the bands of fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone.

Both sprains and strains can occur as work-related injuries. Signs and symptoms vary depending on the severity and location of the injury, but may include: pain, swelling, bruising and decreased range of motion.

Physical therapy at Cedar Hill Physical Therapy can help you recover from your injury by working to strengthen and condition the muscles around the area of injury. The best brace you can give yourself is your own “muscle brace.”

When you have a physically demanding occupation, regular conditioning can help prevent injuries in the future. Paul the Physical Therapist will work with you to develop a home exercise plan of appropriate conditioning and stability exercises.


Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon. Tendons are thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. Tendinitis causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint. While it can occur in any of your tendons, it’s most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels.

Tenderness, discomfort (especially with movement), and swelling are common symptoms.

Although tendinitis can be caused by a sudden injury, the condition is much more likely to stem from the repetition of a particular movement over time. Tendinitis is more common in people whose jobs involve repetitive motions, awkward positions, frequent overhead reaching, vibration, and/or forceful exertion.

Using proper technique is especially important when performing repetitive job-related activities. Improper technique can overload the tendon and lead to tendinitis. At Cedar Hill Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, Paul the Physical Therapist will not only help you recover from your injury, he will help you learn how to prevent injuries from happening in the future.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve of the hand. Repetitive hand motions are thought to contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are tingling, numbness, and weakness in the hand and fingers.

Paul the Physical Therapist can teach you strategies to minimize stress on your hands and wrists. Strengthening muscles, increasing flexibility, improving posture, and making work-style changes can often relieve symptoms and restore wrist and hand function.
