“We have an incredible safety record; no OSHA recordables for the 6 years I’ve been here and I attribute that to Axiom’s involvement.

The nurses are so wonderful and so attuned to the Employees and help them return to work safely after an injury. They listen very well and the education is the most important. Our employees and managers love them.

Thank you for all that you do.

4 Ways to Prevent Strains and Sprains At Work

by | Jul 3, 2018 | Employee Health Management, Employee Health Medical Management, Injury Case Management

If you don’t take action immediately after spraining your ankle or wrist at work, it can lead to a long lasting (and painful) injury. In addition to lingering symptoms, you may also be faced with lost wages and an expensive trip to the doctor.  Want to avoid sprains altogether? We’re revealing the top 4 ways you can bypass them—even in high risk industries!

Why Do I Frequently Sprain my Ankle at Work?

Sprains or strains may happen in the blink of eye, but the result of a strain is because of improper lifting, pushing or pulling, which causes micro-traumas to the body. Depending on the circumstances of the injury, sprains/strains can rupture ligaments, or knock a joint out of position. Want to bypass the strain curse at work? Here’s four simple ways:

Loosen Up and Stretch

When your muscles are tight, they are vulnerable to strain.  Before work, get your body warmed up with some light exercise.  When you’re warmed up (not before), commit to a full-body stretch session, focusing on additional stretches for your high-risk muscle groups.

Focus on Your Food

Believe it or not, your diet can affect muscle injury! Studies have shown that a balanced, healthy diet allows your muscles to become more resilient than a poor diet full of processed and chemical-packed foods. Portion every meal with complex carbs, fats and protein—and throughout the day, stay hydrated!

Evaluate Work Tasks

Are you suffering similar injuries time and time again? If you have encountered several wrist strains or back sprains, do a mental inventory of your daily tasks at work. A common repetitive action could be causing your body to move incorrectly, causing the sprain to re-occur again (and again, and again!) Uncovering work patterns that are causing your injury can help you to modify them for the future—and therefore, minimize your risk!

Advocate Safety Training

Studies have shown lower back strain is the most common workplace injury, affecting employees in every industry. You can help minimize injuries for yourself (as well as for your fellow employees) by asking your employer to kick start a mandatory safety training program teaching everyone proper ergonomics. Education is power! It will provide you the information and the knowledge to follow health guidelines so you’re lifting and lunging safely at work, saving you from trips to the hospital and time spent away from work.
