What all Comes Under Work Injury physiotherapy

01.Tendinitis Edmonton

Tendinitis is a condition that happens in the tendons, these tendons are thick fibrous structures that act as a connective tissue of the muscle and the bone. With repeated movements your tendons get worn out in time, this is caused mostly due to improper positioning. But with this condition, you may feel harsh pains in your joints. This Tendinitis can also lead to a situation called arthritis. When the tendons get weaker your bones get more active and start to rupture onto one another, this won’t be an issue until the cartilage in your bone starts to get eroded. Once the cartilage gets eroded there is no smooth tissue to make the movements smooth so we feel pain in our joints and this causes arthritis. We also perform muscle-strengthening physiotherapy exercises to aid this condition, we put keen attention on your body and design your exercises and movements. Symptoms With Tendinitis, you may encounter the following symptoms like 
  • Tender pains in the joints usually occur when you sit, stand, or move around using the tendon that ruptured. 
  • You may also experience mild to medium swelling in the area, this is caused due to the over ruptured tendons.
  • Tenderness will be felt in the area where your tendons are weak, this can put you in a condition of discomfort and agony.

02.Muscle spasms & Strains

Muscle spasms and strains are mostly caused due to overworking of a particular muscle group. This mostly occurs in places where a high amount of physical activity is included. People working in workshops, factories, godowns, and warehouses mostly encounter these situations. This is because when a person is responsible for boarding a manufactured material to a truck, most probably his shoulder muscles will be overworked, this will lead to a condition of spasm in the shoulder or the supporting muscle group. Sometimes pain occurs even due to loose muscles, loose muscles also can lead to tendonitis.

03.Concussions happened in the workplace

A concussion is a specific condition that happens when the brain experiences whiplash or a blow. When the brain receives such shock the calcium cells rush into the brain making it dull and non-energetic for a specific amount of time. Concussions need time to heal and will take some management practices to come completely out of it. Getting back to work right after a concussion will be a nightmare, people need to take rest and slowly continue to work part-time and adopt full-time work. If you experience concussions it is better to contact a concussion specialist or a certified physiotherapist near you. We are Granville physiotherapy center in south Edmonton. We have a certified physiotherapy specialist who can manage your concussion and other conditions if you have any. 

04.Motor vehicle accidents physical therapy

Motor vehicle accidents could be a nightmare. We wouldn’t be expecting those and all of a sudden bamm. This happens in most cases, if you are one among them then you need to provide keen attention to your body for finding out the injuries in them. Some injuries will be inert inside and will cause serious problems in the future, these need to be addressed. A casual visit to a physical therapist near you can clear up all your problems as physiotherapists will ask you a series of questions to identify all possible injuries.

05.Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The carpal tunnel contains a set of nerves in the wrist region. The median nerve in the carpal tunnel sometimes experiences blockage and will not be able to provide blood to the fingers. This mostly happens for people who are in typing jobs. This happens when the wrist is rested in a single place for a long period then it causes temporary blockage. The same in time will lead to permanent dysfunctions. This is called carpal tunnel syndrome. Physiotherapists treat them with mobility exercises and sometimes surgery will be needed in rare cases. An evening visit to your nearby physiotherapist can improve your condition drastically. 

06.Vestibular injuries due to work-related conditions 

For people working under loud noises, a vestibular injury can occur. Vestibular systems are present in the back of our brain and our inner ears. When the inner ears experience loud noises or infection this will result in an imbalanced vestibular system. This in turn will require an examination to find the root cause of your condition. These conditions can cause an imbalance in our bodies and mind. Generally, these conditions are cured within one or two visits to your local physiotherapist. 

You can start your treatment right away

01.Physiotherapy in Edmonton

A physiotherapy session is a to-go solution for any pains caused due to work-related or any other injuries. The physical therapists have a set of procedures they follow to find the root cause of your pain and give their best treatments. They also have multiple treatment plans to treat various conditions. If you encounter any work-related injuries then a physiotherapist near you will be the best solution for your pain.

02.Ice Pack

Ice packs decrease the swelling and ease the ruptured area. When there is more action in the area that is affected by the tendonitis, due to friction the tissues produce more and more heat. This can be eased down with some ice. Always remember this will always give you temporary solutions and not aid the condition. You can use ice packs to ease the pain and then go to a physiotherapist near you to treat your condition. At times ice packs can give you instant relief and make you carry on with your work. If you experience more pain then ice packs are the go-to solution for instant relief.

03.Compression Technique by Edmonton Physiotherapist

 If you are a baseball player or into any kind of sport then you might have encountered people wearing compression bands on their thighs and elbows. Compression techniques have become a solution worldwide for people who have ruptured tissue. Our body structure mainly comprises muscles, bones, and nerves. When the tendons, ligaments, or muscles experience any injury then it will become hard for the area to handle such pain, gravity pulls the weight down hence putting more pressure on the damaged tissue. Compression can aid this condition, a thick band will be tied in and around the damaged tissue, this will restrict any motion to the damaged tissue. You can also combine this technique with ice packs, first, the ice packs can be applied to cut down heat, and then compression bands can be tied to restrict pull and motion. This technique is mostly followed by sports persons and athletes, this can also give instant relief and helps us to move forward with the damaged tissue. Again, this also cannot become a permanent solution to the problem. Only rest and apt medication will help for recovery. The compression can also be used until the injury is self-healed, until it will provide support to the damaged tissue.

04.Elevation

Elevation techniques are used around the world for treating injuries in the knees, our knees are present in the lower region of the body, which means this is more prone to weight. To aid this condition doctors advise patients who are suffering from a knee-related problem to keep their knees on a raised platform. This will decrease the blood flow and reduce the rupture. If you suffer from any knee pain then keeping your legs elevated is a proven technique to reduce swelling and pain. People who underwent surgery in the lower part of the body are also advised to keep their legs elevated until the injury is completely healed. Keeping your knees elevated will also give a sense of relief to the leg bones as your body will be at rest, it won’t need to carry your weight and move. This is also a technique of the rest.

05.Rest

If you want your pain or injury to heal at a faster phase, rest is a rudimentary thing. During rest the metabolism of the body gets focused on the injured area, rest also reduces inflammation. Doing work despite an injured knee or shoulder will put a lot of stress on the damaged tissue and worsen your condition. There are very low possibilities for the injury to get better with continuous work. This also happens in some cases where the person has a good physical condition and more psychological strength. But it happens in very few cases.
