These activities can cause neck injuries, serious pain

There are a variety of activities that can cause neck injuries, resulting in serious pain and discomfort. Understanding how to care for your neck is critical, as the right approach can help you avoid an injury that puts you on the shelf for an extended period of time.

Here are some of the many activities that can cause neck injuries in the workplace:

  • Holding your head in the same position: For example, if you sit at a computer all day, you may hold your head at an awkward posture for hours on end.
  • Resting your forehead on your hand: Again, if you work at a computer, it's common to do this. Doing this for too long can result in a neck strain.
  • Lifting heavy items: Not only can this injure your neck, but almost every other part of your body is at risk as well. To avoid trouble, ask others for help if you need to lift an item that's too heavy for you to handle.
  • Slip and fall: Even the most coordinated individuals can slip and fall, such as when going down their stairs or walking through a parking lot.

Some neck injuries are more serious than others, but they all require a medical diagnosis. With the help of your doctor, you can better understand your injury, treatment plan and how to get back to normal as soon as possible.

If your doctor suggests an extended period of rest, don't hesitate to file a workers' compensation claim. Benefits may be available if you injured your neck on the job.
