Work-related injuries can be unavoidable, regardless of your field. Specific trauma to the foot and/or ankle from slips, trips and falls are a painful annoyance for workers. For example, your ankle has rolled outwards after landing awkwardly or perhaps the wheel of a forklift has reversed over your foot and caused a fracture. In these scenarios, your injury will require expert diagnosis and treatment.
There are common activities in the workplace that may predispose you to injury over time. Overload of bone and soft tissue structures from micro-trauma of the repetitive actions of your everyday work actives may cause an accumulative trauma disorder or work related musculoskeletal disorder. Muscles, tendons and ligaments become fatigued from repetitive strain, so if you’re experiencing ongoing discomfort, the podiatrists from Footmed Foot and ankle clinics are available to treat the causes of your foot pain today.
