A man was employed as a chef by a popular local establishment in Myrtle Beach where he was unloading dough from a freezer and suffered a lower back injury. The pain radiated through his lower back and down into his left leg. The employee had a previous back surgery over a decade before the accident and the initial problems were greatly exacerbated after the incident at work.
After filing a workers' compensation claim and seeing an orthopedic doctor, the man was recommended injections and several prescriptions to alleviate the pain in his back. He also was prescribed physical therapy. During this time the employee was put on sedentary duty for work because of the limited use of his lower back. His doctor also recommended a brace for his back to help stabilization while his injury healed.
