Stress In Relation To Workplace Injury

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta GA Orthopedic ServicesAt Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we specialize in providing expert rehabilitation care for individuals who have experienced workplace injuries. When most people consider workplace injuries they think about heavy or improper lifting, faulty workstation set-up, improper safety precautions and unsafe conditions for working. These are all common causes of injuries in the workplace. Stress is a less common reason people get workplace injury, but it cannot be dismissed as a contributing factor.

Work is stressful; if it weren’t stressful then it would probably be considered play. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a job that fuels your every emotional and physical need and you could get paid for it? This is not the case. Most work environments and jobs are the source of a great deal of stress. This stress may be related to uncertain job security, relational tensions, conflict between competitors, overworking or downsizing are just a few sources for stress in the workplace.

While the stress cannot necessarily cause physical injury, it can cause depression, anxiety and sleeplessness. If you experience these stress related symptoms it can cause injury rates to increase. If your body endures prolonged or chronic stress you may suffer from not being able to focus on proper techniques and mechanics for your workplace and it may lead to mistakes or carelessness that may cause injuries. This is why it’s important to address your stress levels and physical surroundings in your workplace to prevent workplace injury.

If you have been injured at work, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians specializes in Worker’s Compensation cases and offers proven and effective treatments. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
