Back Injuries at Work

Back Injuries at Work

Back Injuries at Work

The most common injuries are back injuries at work.  People are also often very concerned about whether or not they will end up needing surgery.  Most often, people will not need surgery.  However, sometimes conservative care is not effective and people end up needing surgery.  It is impossible to know the answer without a careful evaluation from a back specialist.

Treatment for Back Injuries at Work

Typically the course of treatment for back injuries at work is the following: 

  • The doctor will recommend medication, rest, and physical therapy.
  • If these are not effective they may recommend a series of epidural steroid injections.  Patients usually receive a series of 3. This is usually done in conjunction with additional physical therapy.  They are very effective for some people and less effective for other people.
  • Other considerations are facet joint injections and SI joint blocks.  Sometimes, the SI joint is the pain generator, but it is hard to pinpoint the exact issue in most cases.

If all of that intervention does not work it is possible you may need surgery.  However, a variety of factors are considered in this decision.  It’s important to try the more conservative treatments before jumping into surgery.  Ultimately, surgery is a good approach for people with no other options.  Positive outcomes are common and outlined in WebMD’s list of back surgery procedures.

It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time.

I got injured at work. Trying to deal with the insurance company became overwhelming mainly because I needed surgery and they would not respond to my calls or emails. I researched local attorneys and decided to choose Gearhart Law Group mainly because it was smaller, I liked the information I read and I felt I might get more individual attention. It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time. Beth Gearhart made me feel as though I were her only client. She responded to my emails immediately, every time. She explained the whole process from the beginning and everything unfolded exactly as she explained it would. The process took time but I received the surgery I needed and in the end was very surprised by the large financial settlement I received due to Ms. Gearhart’s expertise. I highly recommend Gearhart Law Group.

I would highly recommend Beth to anyone needed a Workers Compensation Lawyer.

From the moment I called Beth, I knew I had made the right decision. She returned my initial phone call very promptly and was sensitive to my case and situation. I had an injury in Georgia, but live in New York so the case was complicated and unique. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about Georgia Workers Compensation laws which is what I needed assistance with.
