On The Job Back Injuries
One of the most common types of back injuries that people experience will
come from lifting a heavy object without proper care or preparation. Unprepared
lifting can lead to a pinched nerve or herniated disc. These types of
injuries are rather common in construction accidents, and a worker at
a construction site dealing with a lot of lifting and/or heavy loads needs
to exercise extreme caution. There are many other types of back injuries
that can occur, including:
- Slips and Falls
- Falling Objects
- Accidental Blows to the Back
- So On
Back Injury Treatment
In the majority of cases, your back care specialist is going to attempt
nonsurgical and noninvasive treatments first in order to restore your
full range of motion and back pain. When all other options have been exhausted
and no positive results have been yielded, surgical options will be discussed
at that point. Back surgery will range in various levels of complexity
based upon the patient’s needs.
