Occupational Injuries

Occupational Injuries

  • 1. The shoulder relies on tendons and ligaments for movement and stability. These are subjected to tremendous stresses leading to injury, particularly in overhead athletes.
  • 2. Strains and sprains are acute injuries and generally resolve faster than overuse injuries, which require significant rest to allow for healing.
  • 3. Most sports-related injuries can be managed with rest, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and physical therapy.
  • 4. Abnormal body position and mechanics contribute to the majority of recreational or occupational injuries and must be corrected as part of the treatment plan.
