Understanding Work Related Injuries 

Work-related back injuries can develop in both sedentary and active work environments.

The most common causes of these injuries include:

  • Heavy lifting
  • If you exert force on your back by lifting or moving heavy objects, you risk developing a back injury.
  • Repetitive movements
  • Constant twisting and rotating can injure your back over time.
  • Sedentary work
  • Sitting at a desk and working on a computer all day can result in chronic back pain – especially if you have poor posture.
  • If you’re experiencing back pain due to a work-related injury, our spine specialists can help you identify the underlying cause, treat the pain – and prevent the issue from recurring.
  • If you have a mild injury, it may be treatable with conservative home remedies. However, a more severe problem may require therapy, prescription pain medication, or surgery.

Do you qualify for worker’s compensation?

If you sustain a work-related back injury, you may qualify for worker’s compensation. During this process, our experts will need to diagnose you with one of the following:

Temporary partial disability: You can resume your old job after treatment.

Permanent partial disability: You can return to work, but you need a new position. You can no longer complete your former tasks.

Permanent total disability: You cannot return to your former position or any work at all due to your injury.

The Care That You Need From Expert Back Specialists 

If you are experiencing back pain, our back and spine doctors will strive to deliver the least invasive back pain treatment method possible. Our back doctors believe in prevention rather than invasive surgeries. Typically, spine surgery is not the given method of treatment. Treatment is given by renowned neck and back surgeons to give relief due to pinched nerves, spinal cord compression, or mechanical instability of the spinal cord.

Our back and neck specialists specialize in spine surgery, along with having years of advanced training in the bone and neurological spinal disorders.
