Neck and Back Injuries in Pittsburgh
The most common reasons why people receive a neck or back injury are:
- Bad posture
- Emotional stress
- Falling or slipping
- Head injury
- Car accidents
When it comes to neck injuries, their nature is such that you may have received a neck injury several years ago in a car accident, and the injury itself will develop only now, several years later. You never know what the real cause of the injury was, as there could have been so many things. Proving that your injury originated from work may be hard, but not impossible.
Back injuries are also complicated, but are easier to prove. If you slipped at work, or got hit by a falling object, or tried lifting heavy load without gear and using proper technique, you may have received a back injury. As long as your spine is intact, you should be fine. However keep in mind that both of these injuries require severe and intense treatments, and are not to be taken lightly.
Seek immediate medical attention as soon as you receive any of these two injuries, and report the injury to your employer on time, to avoid losing the opportunity to file for workers compensation claim.
