Sometimes, at work, a worker will experience pain in their shoulder. They may be tempted to just try to shrug it off as no big deal and proceed as normal.
However, such pain could be a sign of a significant shoulder injury. There are many different ways a person could suffer a shoulder injury at work, such as through lifting incidents, awkward work positions or struck-by-object accidents. Also, shoulder injuries can strike individuals in all different kinds of work, from office workers to industrial workers. In 2012, there were over 68,000 instances in which shoulder injuries resulted in workers having to miss work.
