Common Workers’ Compensation Back Injuries

We understand that each back injury sustained at work is unique and may require a different treatment from other workers’ compensation back injuries. 

However, some of the most common back injuries we treat as a result of an on the job incident include:

  • Herniated or ruptured discs
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fractured vertebra
  • Cervical radiculopathy

Surgical Procedures

The doctors at NJ Spine and Wellness take a conservative approach to workers’ compensation back injuries, emphasizing non-surgical treatment options before considering spine surgery. However, certain cases may require surgical intervention as the best path back to work and activity. Possible surgical procedures for a workers’ compensation back injury may include:

Spinal Fusion

A spinal fusion is done to join vertebrae in the spine and inhibit movement. Fusing two vertebrae is known as a one-level spinal fusion, while fusing three or more vertebrae is a multi-level spinal fusion.

Discectomy

During a discectomy, the abnormal disc material pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord is removed. By removing a portion of the intervertebral disc that is causing you pain, a discectomy may relieve your pain and restore normal function.

Laminectomy

A laminectomy is done to remove part or all of the lamina. During a laminectomy, bone spurs or tumor growth may be removed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.
