According to the National Safety Council, approximately 120,000 job-related foot injuries occur every year. A number of foot problems -- including arthritis of the foot and ankle, toe deformities, pinched nerves between the toes, plantar fasciitis, adult-acquired flat foot, and tarsal tunnel syndrome -- have been attributed to repetitive use at work.
In addition, many foot injuries result from non work-related accidents such as: falls on defective or uneven sidewalks; interior and exterior stairways or steps and hazardous floor conditions on private and commercial properties.
There are several types of common foot injuries:
Achilles Tendon Rupture
Plantar Fasciitis Tear
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Stress Fracture of the Foot
Crushed or broken feet
Amputations of toes or feet
Fractured or broken bones because of slips, trips or falls
Injuries from chemicals and solvents
