Types & Causes of Work Injury 

Work injury occurs in virtually any profession: from long-haul truckers to nurses, office administrators to professional athletes, and everyone in between. A work injury can also affect people at any age or stage in their career—so don't assume you're "off the hook" just because you're highly experienced.

Some of the most common work injuries we see include:

  • Tennis elbow (often in people who work with their hands), bursitis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, muscle spasms and strains, and other types of soft tissue injuries
  • Sciatica, which is a syndrome involving burning leg pain and weakness when the sciatic nerve is compressed in the lumbar spine
  • Recurring back pain or neck pain: common with things like a disc herniation, disc bulge, joint misalignment, or muscle spasm

A work injury may be more likely to occur in people who:

  • Use poor ergonomics, posture, and body mechanics
  • Sit a lot
  • Stand a lot
  • Frequently lift or move heavy objects and machinery
  • Are involved in work-related accidents like a car crash or slip and fall

Secondary factors like high stress, poor nutrition, obesity, and smoking may also increase your risk of injury by impairing overall health.
