Professional athletes. They get paid to hit each
other, swing, throw, run, jump, crouch. You name it. Just about everything
but walk casually. And they get hurt "on the job." Because their
job is to be on the field, on the court, on the course, wherever their
sport is played.
You can get injured "on the job" as well. Lifting boxes, moving
furniture, twisting to reach. It can happen in an instant.
If you’ve been injured "on the job", the team at the Los
Angeles Spine Surgery Institute will treat you exactly like the athlete
you are. We believe that all healthy, functioning adults have the athlete
inside. Just because you hurt your back in the warehouse and not in the
clubhouse doesn’t mean your injury is any less job-related.
For information on work-related injury treatment, please contact the
Los Angeles Spine Surgery Institute.
