Most common workers compensation conditions
Back pain is the most common condition suffered by Americans every year when injured at the job. Back pain accounts for an overwhelming 75% of injuries suffered that causes employees to lose time at work. Often times back injuries are caused by improper ergonomic workstations, heavy lifting, slipping and falling and other traumas to the body. Back injuries may often become disabling, depending on the physical conditioning of the employee prior to having an injury.
While back pain may be the most prevalent workers compensation injury, some workers may suffer more substantial back injuries that involve the intervertebral disc. A herniated disc occurs during a low back injury when the pressure inside of the disc, due to the repetitive trauma, forces the disc material to make contact with spinal nerve roots or even the spinal cord in extreme cases. Symptoms such as pain of the extremities, numbness and tingling and muscle weakness may occur in such cases.
