Low Back and Neck Strain

When a work injury occurs that causes low back or neck strain, it is usually from lifting heavy items or performing repetitive movements. Lifting, bending, twisting, squatting, and stooping can cause any worker back or neck injuries. Low back and neck strains are painful because the muscle is stretched or torn.

Disc Injuries

Workers who experience the work injury of herniated, slipped, or ruptured discs could be in constant pain. When this occurs, it is because the disc between the bones of vertebrae moves out of position.

If a worker has degenerative disc disease before starting work, they can experience aggravation of this disease. This could cause lower back and neck pain that can lead to serious conditions for the individual.

These individuals with degenerative disc disease can experience aggravation from manual jobs that require repetitive movements and lifting heavy items.

Injuries that involve back and neck pain may require long-term treatment as well as ongoing X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans. Medical treatment can often be expensive because of the nature of correction and rehabilitation involved in these types of work injuries.
