This study was undertaken to follow up an incidence rate study of spinal injuries carried out from a cross-sectional random sample consisting of 2,342 workers who were compensated at least once in the year 1981 by the Quebec Worker's Compensation Board (QWCB) for an absence from work.
These workers were followed for 3 years using the QWCB information system to record any recurrence of compensated absence from work.
A total of 850 (36.3%) had at least one recurrence, and had longer episodes of absence than those without a recurrence (P<0.0001).
