Knee, Shoulder and Elbow Injuries at Work
Injuries to knees, shoulders and elbows are relatively common workplace injuries that can be caused by repetitive motion or heavy lifting. Pain from knee, shoulder and elbow injuries may be localized or spread to the surrounding areas.
Injuries can include:
- Sprains, strains and fractures;
- Dislocated shoulders, knees or elbows;
- Rotator cuff tears (injury to the tendons covering the shoulder);
- Torn ligaments (a break in the tissues that connect bones to one another at joints);
- Bursitis (inflammation of the bursae that cushion joints);
- Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon that connects bone to muscle)
For each of these injuries, surgery and/or physical therapy may be necessary. Your workers’ compensation funds would cover these medical interventions.
