A major workplace safety challenge involves preventing neck and back injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over one million workers suffer back injuries annually, and back injuries account for 20 percent of workplace injuries or illnesses. Further, 25 percent of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries, costing industry billions of dollars on top of the pain and suffering borne by employees.
At Spine Institute of Central Florida, we employ very effective non-surgical treatments regimens, and when needed state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical techniques geared toward taking care of your injured workers and getting them back to work as soon as is medically appropriate.
We fully recognize the importance of helping your injured workers recover from their injury, and how to support employers through the worker’s compensation claims process.
We understand the urgency of safely getting your injured employees back to work as quickly as possible. We will help the Case Manager, and will provide all necessary clinical documentation to aid with the following:
