Super Bowl XLVIII shows how a person can recover from spinal injury and still achieve his or her dreams.

Anybody who has ever thrown a football has dreamed about playing in the Super Bowl. This is the pinnacle of professional sports. It is also a job with significant risk of injury.

Today’s post is dedicated to Peyton Manning who underwent four spinal surgeries including a cervical fusion. He was able to return to professional football and set career highs in yards and touchdowns. He also led the Denver Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII.

We think his story is an inspiration to anyone who is suffering from spinal injury. Here is some information about cervical fusion and available workers compensation benefits.

Cervical fusion

Many of our clients suffer from neck injuries. We have seen everything from broken vertebrae to herniated discs. Pain and weakness are common symptoms related to nerve irritation.

Some individuals respond very well to conservative treatment while others require surgery. Metal plates, rods, and screws can be used to immobilize the vertebrae and hopefully provide relief.

Many people who undergo cervical fusion require permanent restrictions. This can be very difficult for an individual who has always done heavy work.

Not disabled forever

Peyton Manning is the exception and shows that anything is possible. However, it is important to remember that he was provided with the best possible care. No expense was spared in his rehabilitation. He could also retire as a millionaire if he failed.

We tell our clients to not give up hope. It is possible to return to work after a cervical fusion. A person can also be retrained for a new career. The secret is making the best of your workers compensation benefits.

Workers compensation provides substantial benefits to people hurt at work. All reasonable and necessary medical treatment must be paid. You can even choose your own doctor after 28 days.

Wage loss benefits are paid if you cannot work. This gives you time to heal without worrying about bills. It also gives you an opportunity to plan for the future.
