Can back injuries hurt your career?

If you've gotten into a car accident in California, the last thing on your mind is whether or not it will affect your career. Unfortunately, those questions about possible long-term effects of this short-term incident are ones that need to be asked.

It's been stated by Everyday Health that back pain is the leading cause of challenges in the workplace and taking time off from work. Doctors recommend that sufferers rest even if their injuries are light, and the harsher impact of a car accident can leave you with injuries that could take months to recover from. Trying to push yourself to work before your body is ready can cause more stress, worsen injuries, and result in longer lasting pain that will require you to take more time off. It can quickly become a vicious cycle.

In some cases, it might be impossible for you to work even if you desperately wanted to. Back injuries take time to heal from, and severe back injuries can leave you immobilized for a period of time for your own safety. In some cases, you may have even lost some of your range of movement and might be unable to do workplace tasks that are vital to your job.

In short, a back injury can indeed hurt your career by forcing you to take time off of work and hindering your ability to do your job. While many workplaces are understanding in these situations, it can still be a difficult time, especially if you don't get paid recovery time and must leave work for a while.
