Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes helps several patients from the State College area who are hurt on the job. According to the National Safety Council, the most ordinary kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves trauma 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 repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs are carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back issues.
These injuries can be avoided by using proper lifting techniques, taking frequent breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help prevent injuries by providing their employees educational materials on how to avoid these injuries.
Back discomfort and injuries are a ordinary issue that Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with people who have shoulder or neck pain.
If you have had a work injury or accident and live in the State College community, give Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes a call and make an appointment today. We will help you to create a treatment plan that will help you heal and do our best to have you back on the job as quick as we can!
