Common Shoulder Injuries and Musculoskeletal Disorders
Shoulder injuries are increasingly common among U.S. workers, especially since shoulder injuries are a common type of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) in office settings. MSDs occur when someone uses the same body part in an unnatural position too frequently and for too long. MSDs can result in severe pain and lack of mobility if they are not addressed early enough.
Even if you feel only slight pain or inflammation, you should still get your shoulder checked out. If we can determine that there is something wrong, you can seek help at work by obtaining ergonomically safe equipment. We can also provide you guidance on working with a more natural posture.
