Treatment for Nurses with Back Injuries

During a nurse’s routine rounds, it only takes one incorrect move, one improper lift, one sudden twist to unexpectedly suffer a back injury. Back pain is one of the most frequent causes of pain among the general population, where approximately 80 percent of individuals are likely to experience at least one case of acute back pain in their lifetime. In the United States alone, about 25% of the population account to having had a minimum of one day of lower back pain within the past three months. Additionally, lower back pain is the fifth leading cause for individuals to seek medical attention.

However, the prevalence of back complications among nurses or other healthcare workers is even greater. Registered nurses and nursing assistants are among the top six occupations at greater risk for musculoskeletal injury. According to data collected by the American Nurses Association, more than half of nurses report experiencing symptoms of chronic back pain. Furthermore, approximately 12 percent of the nursing workforce reported leaving the profession due to chronic back pain.

 

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

For many nurses and other healthcare workers, the high demands of the job are often factors that lead to the development of back complications and symptoms that can make their line of work difficult. While nurses are in charge of caring for other individuals with injuries or conditions, those who’ve been injured themselves also need proper care in order to find relief for their conditions.
