Back and spinal injuries are some of the most common occurrences in the workplace.
In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration rates them as the second most common workplace injury. These injuries can leave you unable to handle the physical requirements of your job and in turn render you unable to earn a living. Learning about these injuries and the full range of workers’ compensation benefits available to you is a crucial step in the recovery process.
Back and spinal injuries include pinched nerves, fractured vertebrae, back strains, herniated disks, and bulging disks. Most workplace injuries develop from the twisting of the spine, with pulling or pushing movements. Single acts like lifting items that are too heavy or repetitive acts like daily strain on back muscles and discs, all take their toll on your back and spinal cord.
