Back injuries are a big deal

A job-related back injury can happen for a number of reasons. Regardless of how your injury occurred, a back injury can compromise your ability to do your job well, move without pain and continue in the same line of employment. Do not dismiss your back injury as something that will resolve itself over time, but secure the help you need to ensure you get necessary medical care and time to recover.

Nurses more likely to develop musculoskeletal disorders

Nurses often lift or reposition patients during their day-to-day work. According to the American Nurses Association, the average adult weighs 169 pounds; however, considering the size of the geriatric population and a rapid increase of obese patients, individual weights can range from 90 to almost 400 pounds.

Minnesota workers and vibration hazards

It is not uncommon for employers to provide safety protections against falling hazards and exposure to dangerous materials but to fail to take into account for the potential dangers of long-term exposure to vibrations. While vibrations from equipment, such as saws, sanders, chipping hammers and other power tools may seem innocuous, they can lead to a number of medical conditions.

Work-related lower back injuries

Minnesota workers may be interested to learn about one of the most common injuries in the workplace. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, approximately 1 million workers suffer from back pain each year, and it is the second most common reason that employees miss work. While lower back problems may not be catastrophic in nature, they are often painful and debilitating. Lower back issues are difficult to recover from completely, and those who suffer from this kind of injury are also prone to re-injury.
