Orthopedic problems are one of the most common injuries sustained while at work.
On-the-job injuries – the type covered by workers' compensation – are most commonly accidents, but may also involve improper ergonomics that lead to sprains and strains and repetitive stress disorders.
Overexertion when lifting or lowering items can strain muscles and cause neck and/or back pain, and any type of repetitive movements carried out over a long period of time can inflame and damage the soft tissue in the affected body part – most commonly the wrists, hands, knees, hips, and shoulders – leading to chronic pain.
