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 back injuries can develop in both sedentary and active work environments.
The most common causes of these injuries include:
If you exert force on your back by lifting or moving heavy objects, you risk developing a back injury.
Constant twisting and rotating can injure your back over time.
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:
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.
