Lifting and pushing injuries don't make the news


Injuries caused by lifting and pushing hardly ever make it into the news. This is because they tend to cause injuries like muscle and tendon strain and injuries, back pain and dislocation, and hernias - not injuries that tend to make the news.

But, injuries casued by lifting and carrying caused 11% of all injury claims in 2006/07 in Victoria.
