    Treating back issues: Extension exercises


    Treating back issues: Extension exercises

    Back issues are caused by a myriad accidents at work. From tasks including heavy lifting and manual graft to repetitive strain injury in office workers, it seems that regardless of the industry you work in, there is no escaping work-related back injuries.

    Treating back injuries

    It is important not to second guess with back injuries, and always seek help from a medical professional.

    It is likely if you have badly injured your back at work that pain killers will be prescribed, as well as a course of physiotherapy, sometimes in conjunction with alternative therapies, for example acupuncture.

    Extension exercises are of particular benefit for those who suffer with back issues in the lower to mid back, especially in the spine area.

    The exercise usually involves lying face down and lifting the chest off the floor without support from the arms. Sometimes a roman chair can be used to assist with the exercise.

    Back injury compensation

    If you believe you have been involved in an accident at work that has caused your back injury and you are in no way accountable for the incident or the injury you sustained, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

    When we are at work, UK law requires our employers to ensure our health and safety. This includes, for example, providing appropriate training and completing work place assessments to ensure that employee needs are met.

    When an employer fails to meet their legal obligation to keep you safe and healthy while at work, and you are able to prove it – you may be able to claim back injury compensation.
