Workplace Injury Physical Therapy in Columbia, Maryland
Workplace injuries are quite common, even in occupations you may not expect. Lifting a box of only a few pounds over your head to put it on a shelf can cause strain, as can sitting for too long in the wrong type of chair. Of course, a police officer, firefighter, construction worker, physical trainer, and other jobs have high rates of injuries in the workplace due to the dangerous and physically demanding nature of their job.
Whether you lifted too many boxes, were hit by something falling in a warehouse, slipped in the parking lot, or crashed a forklift, you need workplace injury physical therapy. First visit your primary care physician or the ER, depending on the severity of your injury. Then, come to BEAT Physical Therapy in Columbia, Maryland.
