Solutions for Occupational Injuries | Expert Care

Many conditions fall under the category ‘occupational injuries’, ranging from falling to recurring strain injuries resulting from repetitive overuse. When an occupational injury occurs as a result of a trauma, it is managed and treated just like any other injury.

There might also be some associated safety and health issues that generally lie outside the influence of a physiotherapist but our advice is often sought.

Employers are generally very aware of their duties and obligations regarding safety and health, handling and lifting, and other general ergonomic needs. There are, however sometimes cases where further modifications/analysis are required.

Most of the injuries arise from everyday repetitive activities such as reaching, bending, carrying, or light lifting that usually triggers some spinal pain.

What Causes Occupational Injuries?

Frequently, there is an indication of some underlying problem that has simply surfaced as a result of a specific activity, but the root cause has usually developed over a long period. The most common causes include poor joint flexibility, poor postural alignment, poor technique, and reduced muscle tone.

For such cases, physiotherapy usually involves not only treating the acute problems, but also identifying the underlying causes and prescribing an action plan to prevent any recurrences.

People who aren’t very attentive to their musculoskeletal health will usually require some lifestyle and habit changes.

Repetitive Strain Injuries or RSI is another category of occupational injuries and presents quite frequently in patients. We have already discussed it in detail in other parts and it usually presents in the upper limbs involving the neck and/or shoulder region.

A wide range of structures can be affected by RSI and every case’s unique details determine the appropriate course of action.

The clinician involved in treatment must have sufficient experience in dealing with these types of injuries because they are quite complex and require special skills to be diagnosed and treated properly. Unfortunately, it is very common to see cases that are not treated successfully due to a lack of understanding on the clinician’s part.

When i went to them i couldn't drive or walk properly and was out of work due to a bulging disc (bearing in mind i work in a Hospital and couldnt even get physio there ) but the lads put me back together and im now on the road to recovery 😊. I've also referred some of my friends ! With sincere thanks lads 🙂read more

Same day appointment. Enda provided a 'most likely' diagnosis which seems to have been accurate. He gave detailed advice on managing the pain and how to move around, all of which has worked out as he advised. A short laser treatment and some massage was given. Good service. I got what I paid more

Highly recommended. I went there late January of this year with severe lower back pain. I met with Jamie who took a detailed history, he examined my back movements (which were non-existent at the time). I started non-surgical spinal decompression, and over the next couple of weeks I noticed a huge difference, not only pain wise, but that I was standing up straight again and not holding onto the wall for support. Jamie has given me daily exercises to help improve my core strength in order to protect my back. I'd highly recommend anyone suffering with pain to contact them. I willl definitely keep their number in my contact list!!Thank you Jamie and colleagues for all your hard work.Extremely professional, caring and more

I can’t recommend the spinal decompression at DC Physiotherapy enough. I can’t believe the improvement I’ve had from it.I had been in absolute agony with nerve pain and numerous visits with consultants and MRI’s taken showed a lot of damage and disc and nerve trouble and they were recommending surgery.I luckily came across an article about this and researched it and have been going to Jaime who was great at not pushing too hard with it at first and building it up and it’s improved so much and i havnt suffered with the awful nerve pain since. It’s improved my quality of life after just 4 sessions so i will continue the more
