Our offices and doctors specialize in the management of work injuries. We have been helping patients navigate this complex system for over a decade and are here to help.
Some things that you should know if you have been injured on the job:
You are never required to pay for your treatment if you are injured on the job. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide you with the medical treatment you need to recover from your work related injury or illness, partially replace the wages you lose while you are recovering, and allow you time off of work to recover when appropriate.
Pain management care continues to be one of the top treatment options for work related injuries. Lower back, neck pain and repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, are just some of the more common work related conditions we treat on a regula basis.
Our office works with a variety of specialists including, orthopedic surgeons, psychologists, neurologists, and diagnostic facilities to get you the treatment you need.
