After a long day at work, many people from Greeley may find themselves with a sore back, but the back ache will typically go away after a night's sleep.

Anyone who works in an Aurora office knows that one of the most important features of the office is the break room and, more specifically, the coffee maker.

Nearly everyone in Denver has felt that slight twinge after getting up from a long day in an office chair.

Most people in Denver have had back pain before, but not nearly as many have been so injured that they can't return to their old job or can't work at all. Severe lower-back pain can and does keep some Colorado employees from working. What may have started as a small injury could eventually lead to numbness in the feet, pain in the legs and mobility issues. In some cases, lower-back pain is the direct result of a serious workplace accident, but it is also possible that someone could develop debilitating lower-back pain by repeating the same job-related action over and over.
