Back injuries are the most common of all job-related injuries. Work injuries can result from falls and lifting or moving heavy objects. Upper back injuries often affect the arms and shoulders creating muscle soreness and pain. Injury to the lower back may affect the use of the legs, creating extreme pain and disability.
