Back injuries due to work and car accidents are a common occurrence. At Long Island Spine Specialists, we have years of experience treating these conditions and helping our patients restore their normal, pain-free lives.

Our staff has extensive, up-to-date knowledge and training regarding all workers’ compensation laws, regulations, and guidelines needed to assist you in obtaining the care you need and deserve.

WORK-RELATED INJURIES

Work-related back injuries can develop in both sedentary and active work environments.

The most common causes of these injuries include:


Heavy lifting

If you exert force on your back by lifting or moving heavy objects, you risk developing a back injury.

Repetitive movements

Constant twisting and rotating can injure your back over time.

Sedentary work

Sitting at a desk and working on a computer all day can result in chronic back pain – especially if you have poor posture.


If you’re experiencing back pain due to a work-related injury, our spine specialists can help you identify the underlying cause, treat the pain – and prevent the issue from recurring.

If you have a mild injury, it may be treatable with conservative home remedies. However, a more severe problem may require therapy, prescription pain medication, or surgery.

Do you qualify for worker’s compensation?
If you sustain a work-related back injury, you may qualify for worker’s compensation. During this process, our experts will need to diagnose you with one of the following:

Temporary partial disability: You can resume your old job after treatment.

Permanent partial disability: You can return to work, but you need a new position. You can no longer complete your former tasks.

Permanent total disability: You cannot return to your former position or any work at all due to your injury.

NO-FAULT CAR INJURIES

Car accidents can seriously damage the neck and back, which are sensitive to sudden force and movement. Common injuries due to motor vehicle collisions include disc injuries and facet injuries – both of which can be painful and debilitating.

If you have been in a car accident and you’re experiencing neck or back pain, it’s important to seek a professional diagnosis as soon as possible. Rapid treatment can stop your pain from worsening and prevent the condition from progressing.
