One of the most dynamic and functional joints on the body is the shoulder and is one of the most commonly injured parts of the body. Injuries like fractures, tears, and impingement, can send a worker home in great pain for an indefinite time. Healing from a shoulder injury takes time and cannot be rushed. As not to place any additional stress on an already painful situation, injured workers need to be given sufficient time to heal and be compensated for that disability period.
The biggest symptom of a workplace shoulder injury is pain while moving the arms or shoulders. This is something that should not be ignored and should be reported to a physician as soon as possible; as shoulder injuries need to be handled with proper care to ensure healthy recovery. During the physician’s meeting, change of activity will most likely be recommended -with daily work being severely limited or restricted completely. If the injury is extensive, surgery will be recommended as well very well might be costly. When paired with pain medications and other fees, the cumulative effect of the shoulder injury can be overwhelming to a non working, injured person.
