Injuries to the legs are a lot less common than say a neck, back or a shoulder injury but the consequences of injuring your legs can be extremely serious.
A leg injury may take the form of a simple sprain or strain following a fall, slip, trip or car accident through to a more severe type of injury such as a crush injury sustained in serious traffic collision, cycling accident, motorcycling accident or as a result of a workplace accident. Other leg injuries following an accident may include fractures, breaks and in worse case scenarios amputation.
Consequences of a leg injury
The consequences of a leg injury may mean that you can lose a period of time away from work, or in the worst case scenario you may never work again. You may require prosthetics in the case of an amputation and adaptations to your home and workplace.
