Atlanta, Georgia, provides many career and job opportunities across a wide array of industries. Although most residents feel grateful to have a steady job, some of these occupations can be dangerous. According to Insurify, the occupations listed below are among the nation’s most dangerous:
- Construction laborers
- Agricultural workers
- Those who drive for a living (truckers, salespeople, etc.)
We highlighted the four occupations above because they are common in Atlanta. These jobs also often cause back conditions and chronic pain in workers.
A promising new treatment for spinal injuries offers relief
Even though workers’ compensation helps injured employees get treatment for work-related back problems, most would prefer to end their condition. A new stem cell technology may help those suffering from painful back ailments heal.
You have probably heard about stem cell treatments and how they can heal or reduce some medical conditions. Many medical facilities now offer these treatments, but most of these use low-potency stem cells. The cells harvested from placentas and newborn umbilical cords offer the highest potency, but they are hard to come by for patients and medical providers.
Now, a company has developed a way to harvest and then reproduce these highly potent stem cells. Called golden cells, they can successfully treat some back problems, including:
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Neck degeneration and pain
- Lower back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
If you continue to suffer from work-related back conditions and pain, golden stem cell treatment may be your path to recovery. A good next step is speaking with a legal advocate about the possibility of having workers’ compensation cover this new therapy. It is also wise to learn more about the state’s workers’ comp treatment rules and regulations to protect your claim.
