Posted by Thomas Brown | Dec 24, 2020 | 0 Comments

Studies suggest that the holiday season can be a challenging time for the body and mind. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in 2017, around 18,100 people visited emergency rooms as a result of holiday decorating-related injuries. In 2018, PBS NewsHour shared a poll they conducted which showed that a third of U.S. adults say the holidays stress them out.

For many people, the holidays really are are “the most wonderful time of the year.” But for others, it’s not all hot chocolate and snow angels. Depression, anxiety, and even suicide tend to rise during the holiday season, and if mental health issues in yourself or a loved one come to the fore, resources are available. And, even those not struggling with mental health can find that back pain and spine conditions can really put a damper on that holiday spirit.

Liberty Mutual has a TV advertising campaign that has been ongoing for about 6 months. Its bottom line statement that is displayed on my TV screen is “you only have to pay for what you want.” This is a very misleading message.

I have used this column to advocate for and to agree with all initiatives that involve vocational rehabilitation. It is so easy to agree with and get behind all efforts to re-train people to enter the job market. My goodness, who would be against such an effort? I have numerous clients in my workers’ compensation practice who are disabled due to a severe job injury (which also finds the employers who argues they cannot accommodate my client’s disabilities/limitations). Employers disregard disabled employees with no regard to seniority with the company of injury or the likelihood that the employee may not be able to find appropriate alternative employment. They just write off the disabled.

During the course of our representation of many injured workers, we come across questions like this one, what type of cervical surgery will be helping one to recover in an opportune time and be able to go back to work in a relatively short time? Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the neck. Cervical disk replacement surgery involves removing a diseased cervical disk and replacing it with an artificial disk. Before this procedure was available, the affected disk was removed and the vertebrae above and below were fused together to prevent motion.
