Work Related Injuries Q & A

What are common work-related injuries?

Injuries happen in the workplace every day. Repetitive-use injuries, such as the tendon inflammation experienced by workers who use their hands and arms to perform routine tasks, are often only diagnosed once function is lost.

Acute workplace injuries, such as the trauma resulting from a slip-and-fall accident or the searing back pain caused by lifting something heavy, are also common. These types of injuries most often affect the muscles, bones, joints, or nerves in one of the following areas:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Knees

Some of the most common on-the-job injuries are:

Shoulder impingement

This problem, which is usually the result of repetitive overhead lifting, occurs when the top of your shoulder blade puts pressure on underlying soft tissues whenever you lift your arm away from your body. Over time, shoulder impingement can lead to bursitis or tendonitis.

Herniated spinal disc

Any direct trauma to your back may result in a ruptured a spinal disc. When the herniation irritates nearby nerves that are rooted in your spine, the pain can radiate from your lower back down into one of your legs, where you may also experience numbness or tingling.  

Concussion

This common head injury — often the result of a slip-and-fall accident — occurs when your brain shifts or bounces inside your skull, causing abnormal brain function. Concussions may cause long-term symptoms, including headache or neck pain, confusion, and dizziness.  

How are work-related injuries diagnosed?

The physicians at Garden State Pain Control may use any of the following diagnostic tools, depending on the nature and extent of your injury:

X-ray

X-rays use low-dose radiation to show detailed pictures of your bones and joints. They’re the quickest and easiest way to detect and evaluate bone fractures.

Electrodiagnostic testing

These methods, which include electromyography (EMG) testing and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies, are used to assess unexplained muscle weakness, numbness, and nerve pain.

MRI scan

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) creates clear pictures of your joints, bones, and soft tissues. It’s generally the best choice for examining your spine, major joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.

CT scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan combines X-ray imaging with advanced computer technology to produce images of the structures that lie deeper in your body.

What does treatment involve?

There are a variety of non-invasive treatment methods that can be quite effective for addressing traumatic injury; finding the right approach depends on the location of your injury and severity of your symptoms.

Physical therapy can help you build strength, endurance, flexibility, and stability as you recover, while over-the-counter pain relievers and steroid injections may be helpful for reducing pain and inflammation.

Your Garden State Pain Control physician will help you understand which treatments and interventional pain therapies are available, and which may be most helpful to you.
