If you were seriously injured in a construction accident in New Jersey, then you may be entitled to compensation. To learn what your rights are as a worker, you should speak with a New Jersey construction lawyer.

Facet syndrome is a painful condition that can develop after suffering a back injury.
Treatment for this can be very expensive and last for months, even years. In addition to the expensive medical bills, you may be out of work for an extended period of time. All of this may be addressed through a claim.

The initial treatment of facet syndrome may include:
 

  • pain relief (usually by way of medication or special therapies);
  • muscle relaxants;
  • special exercises; and
  • learning which positions are most comfortable. 

Physical therapy is often necessary in the treatment plan. This will help reduce the symptoms and prevent any further injury to the facet joints.

If these treatments don't work, then it may become necessary to take a more aggressive approach, including:
 

  • injections;
  • radiofrequency ablation;
  • prolotherapy; and
  • facet median branch block. 

No matter what type of treatment plan you are following for facet syndrome, you likely will be unable to work. To learn what legal options are available after a construction accident in New Jersey, you would benefit in seeking counsel from a New Jersey construction lawyer.
