Dr. Aazami treats quite a few patients from the Hyattsville, District Heights region who are harmed while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most ordinary kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which include trauma to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace accidents.
The most routine type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains can be caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by engaging in repetitive movements. Other common MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back issues.
These injuries can be stopped by using correct lifting techniques, taking many breaks and using ergonomic devices. Employers can also help avoid injuries by giving their employees educational materials on how to avoid them.
Back discomfort and injuries are a routine issue that Dr. Aazami sees in our #Ciyt# office and we also work with men and women who have shoulder or neck discomfort.
If you are suffering from a work injury or accident and live in the Hyattsville, District Heights community, give Dr. Aazami a call and schedule an appointment today. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you get relief and do our best to have you back on the job as quickly as we can!
