Singapore Chiropractic Care Helps Lessen Missed Days at Work

Dr. Stakes helps several patients from the Singapore area that are injured while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most routine type of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace injuries.

The most routine type of MSD is a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by engaging in repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back issues.

These injuries can be prevented by using correct lifting techniques, taking frequent breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help prevent injuries by giving their employees educational sources on preventing getting hurt at work.
