The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that one out of every five workplace injuries or illnesses is caused by a back injury. Workplace back injuries account for one fourth of all workers’ compensation injury claims filed, costing insurance companies billions of dollars and causing employees much pain and frustration.

- Heavy physical labor
- Forceful movements and lifting
- Twisting and bending
- Whole body vibration (WBV) caused by using a vibrating piece of machinery or tool
- Positions that are held for a long time without much movement
