Lifting injuries and the recovery process
Construction workers are often exposed to situations in which they have to lift heavy objects several times in a single work day. This specific type of lifting can trigger a lifting injury that can result in severe complications, and a long recovery time.
The recovery process associated with these types of injuries can contain numerous steps and can result in a construction worker being absent from work for an extended amount of time. The recovery process can include surgery, physical therapy, medication, and resting.
The amount of time that a construction worker will spend recovering depends on the severity of their lifting injury. The length of this process can range from a few short weeks to several grueling months of rehabilitation and rest.
