What Are Workplace Back Injuries?
Our backs are complex. Made up of bones, muscles, and tissues, they are involved in just about every movement we make. When the back is injured, our entire lives are often impacted. Some of the main areas of our backs that get injured in a work incident include:
- Ligaments and muscles
- Discs in between vertebrae
Many workplace conditions aid the development of arthritis or osteoporosis, back injuries that occur over longer periods of time.
The most severe workplace back injuries are those that directly affect the spinal column and lead to partial or complete paralysis. These injuries cause lifelong consequences for victims.
What Are Workplace Neck Injuries?
Our necks are just as complex as our backs and include muscles, tendons, tissues, and bones. They are also the starting point for the spinal column and spinal cord. The same types of injuries that occur in the back can occur in the neck.
How Do These Injuries Occur?
Workplace back and neck injuries occur in a variety of ways. In some cases, they are the result of performing the same tasks over and over again for long periods of time. Factory and retail workers are susceptible to workplace repetitive stress injuries of the neck and back.
In other cases, these injuries are the result of traumatic events such as vehicle accidents, falls, overextension, and carrying too much weight.
What Do These Injuries Cost?
While many of these injuries lead to only a few missed days of work, severe neck or back injuries can also cause lifelong disabilities. In cases of paralysis, a victim could see tremendous medical and emotional costs.
