Compassionate Guidance After Injuring Your Back
Back and spinal cord injuries can be life-altering, leaving individuals with chronic pain, limited mobility and other long-term health complications.

Seeking Medical Care After A Back Injury
If you have suffered a back, spine or other injuries at work, it is crucial to seek medical care as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more severe your injury may become. Your treatment may include rest, physical therapy, medication, or in some cases, surgery. The length of time you may be unable to work will depend on the severity of your injury and the nature of your job. In some cases, you may be able to return to work with restrictions or accommodations.
Preventing Back Injuries At Work
Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe working environment for their employees. This includes taking measures to prevent back and spinal cord injuries. Employers can prevent these injuries by providing proper training on lifting techniques and ergonomics, using assistive devices such as lifts or carts and designing workstations to minimize strain on the back. Employers should also regularly assess their workplace for hazards that could cause back injuries and take action to eliminate or reduce those hazards.
