Regular massage therapy sessions reduce workplace fatique and stress two of the top ten causes of work related injuries. Read on below for other common types of work related injury which can be effectively treated withmassage therapy..
Massage therapy reduces fatigue. If someone is pushed -- or pushes herself -- beyond reasonable limits to stay on top of workload, the results often are physical and mental exhaustion. This translates to impaired judgment, slower reflexes in operating machinery or motor vehicles, a delayed response to emergency situations and inattention to details and instructions.
Massage therapy lowers stress.Job security, finances, health issues and anxiety about personal relationships all factor into the stress equation. When an employee's mind is too distracted by real or perceived threats, he is not only more likely to make mistakes that could cause injury but also invites an increased risk of a heart attack, stroke or hypertension.
Massage therapy gives effective treatment and quick recovery to slips. Office kitchens and break rooms are common places for slips to occur because of the number of liquids that get splashed there and are subsequently not cleaned up. Linoleum, hardwood and tile flooring surfaces are particularly hazardous after they have been mopped or waxed. Another consideration is the type of footwear worn by employees.
Massage therapy gives effective treatment and quick recovery to trips. Items left sitting out in a high-traffic corridor, extension cords that are not properly taped down and carpeting that has come loose all are contributors to tripping employees and sometimes causing more than just stubbed toes. Poorly lit hallways and stairs are danger spots, too, because they obscure the ability to see what is underfoot.
Massage therapy gives effective treatment and quick recovery to injuries casued by falling objects. If tall pieces of furniture such as bookcases and filing components are not securely anchored, an earthquake could cause them to pitch forward and dislodge their contents, putting nearby workers in peril. Workplace injuries also can be caused by heavy objects such as supplies and file boxes that are stacked on high shelves and are shifted precariously to the edge each time they are put back or the structure gets bumped.
Massage therapy acts as effective treatment and prevention and reduces or eliminates pain caused by repetitive motion injuries.Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common occurrence for workers engaged in repetitive motion activities that put pressure on the median nerve, causing numbness and pain in the fingers, wrists and hands. Typists, key data operators, beauty salon employees and other workers performing duties involving high repition are at particular risk for developing repetitive motion injuries.
Massage therapy gives effective treatment and quick recovery to injuries resulting from lifting. Many back injuries and pulled muscles that occur in the workplace are the result of picking up something that is too heavy, not bending the legs, not asking a partner to assist or trying to lift or hold a heavy object above the shoulders.
Massage therapy gives effective treatment and quick recovery to injuries resulting from collison impacts. Impact injuries can result from opening a door too quickly or turning a corner too fast are the frequent setups for unintended collisions with co-workers. Leaving file drawers pulled all the way out is as dangerous at shin level as chin level, especially if a co-worker won't see it until the point of impact.
If you've suffered from a workplace injury, you can experience fast and dramatic relief. Waiting too long after an injury often puts stress and strain on other body areas and can lead to the development of further problems. Therpoint can help relieve your pain.
