Recent developments in ADA case law and implications for spine professionals.

Author information

College of Law, University of Iowa, Iowa City.


This article presents case briefs from 1992 through 1994 involving back- and spine-related disabilities that introduces spine professionals to their role in helping incorporate people with back- and spine-related disabilities into the mainstream of society without expensive and prolonged litigation. The cases show how spine professionals can aid employers in making effective determinations regarding whether a patient's condition "substantially limits" a major life activity and whether a patient can perform the "essential functions" of a job without endangering him or herself or others.
