Whether your job requires you to spend eight hours at a desk or demands heavy lifting on your feet, you could be putting yourself at risk for a workplace injury.
Desk jobs and repetitive lifting of heavy objects force us to put pressure on our upper and lower back and spine that can cause troubling, sometimes debilitating back pain. The position we constantly hold our wrists in to type can contribute to painful repetitive stress injuries. Our jobs also frequently make us susceptible to neck strain and musculoskeletal injuries to the knees, legs, and hips.
