If you have suffered a work-related neck or back injury, you know the cost is measured by more than lost wages.
In a report published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 4.4 million private industry cases of non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses. Of these cases, more than 50% lost time from work, transferred to a different job, or was restricted from work activity. Granted, not all 4.4 million cases were spine-related injuries. However, in an earlier report, the Bureau revealed some 880,000 cases were back pain-related injuries.
