Workers who are at risk of being disabled by low back pain

Lower back pain is common for many people and can, in some cases, easily be treated. However, there are some factors that could lead to the disability of workers. For example, like in many states, workers in Indiana could apply for their long-term disability benefits if they can no longer continue their work due to severe low back pain. Below are the factors that could cause low back pains:

  • Any kind of work that requires prolonged sitting, repetitive motions, lifting heavy objects, or the use of machinery that produces too much vibration
  • Workers who seldom exercise and those who have bad posture
  • Workers who have unhealthy lifestyles like those who are smoking and those who are obese
  • Workers who are suffering from emotional hardships or stress

Though there are treatments available for people who have been disabled by low back pains, it could become expensive depending on the severity of the worker’s condition.
