Airline Worker Lifts Package and Suffers Back Strain

Petitioner is an airline ramp service worker that sustained an injury to his back after lifting a heavy package.  He underwent two months of physical therapy treatment for his injury.  He treated with his primary care doctor. As both the x-ray and MRI were negative for any damage to his back, he was diagnosed with a back sprain.  His case settled for 3% loss of use of man as a whole as well as payment of all medical bills and temporary total disability benefits.
