Work-related back injury

Back Injury at Work: A Global Overview

What is the most common back injury at work?

Most common back injuries and spinal injuries include sprains and strains, herniated discs, bulging discs, annular tears, sacroiliac joint strain and fractured vertebrae.

Initially, treatment typically consists of conservative measures such as medications, ice, activity modification and physical therapy. If these initial treatments are unsuccessful, injections may be recommended in the form of facet block, trigger point, epidural steroid injections, or even injections under fluoroscopy.

If these methods are not successful and the pain and disability continue, surgery may be recommended. The most common surgeries we see are discectomies and/or surgical lumbar fusions.

If you need medical treatment, it is important to know that you have a personalized team at Allen Turner Law who will stand with you every step of the way.
