Tips to Avoid Work Related Injuries

Physical Therapist of Cincinnati Physical Therapy, Inc., suggests the following to help avoid injury:

  • Keep the wrist in a neutral position. Adjust your activity so the wrist is not maintained in a bent downward or upward position.
  • Avoid repetition. If you must perform repetitive tasks, vary your hand position.
  • Rest. If possible, take rest breaks. If not, switch between hard and easy tasks or change hands.
  • Reduce the force. Use power tools if available.
  • Decrease the speed. Slow the task down.

Check your work or leisure activities against the tips above. As with many other illnesses, prevention is the key.
