Worker’s Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation provides financial coverage through your workplace for medical expenses related to injuries on the job. Common causes of workplace injuries include:

  • Falls
  • Trips and slips
  • Heavy lifting
  • Equipment injuries
  • Exposure to toxins

Those who work in jobs that require repetitive movements are at increased risk of painful overuse injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and soft-tissue tears. Pain from overuse injuries often develops gradually. If left untreated, these injuries can lead to severe complications, including disability.

When should I schedule a workers’ compensation consultation?

If you’re injured at work, notify your supervisor immediately. Schedule a workers’ compensation consultation at Integrity Spine & Orthopedic if you experience any symptoms affecting your soft tissues or bones.

Symptoms of a workplace injury can include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Loss of range of motion

In some cases, an on-the-job injury can result in orthopedic damage that doesn’t cause noticeable symptoms right away. Delaying a diagnostic evaluation can increase your risk of additional pain and complications.

If you suffer a bleeding wound, head injury, or an open fracture, seek emergency medical attention immediately. Call 911 or proceed to the nearest hospital emergency room without delay.

What happens during a workers’ compensation appointment?

At your initial workers’ compensation appointment, let our team know you have a work-related injury. This ensures we properly document your medical care to support a workers’ compensation claim.

We assess your injury during a physical exam and might order diagnostic imaging to confirm your diagnosis. Based on your test results, we create a treatment plan to ease your pain and help your body heal.

Treatments for work-related injuries can include:

  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Regenerative medicine therapies
  • Minimally invasive orthopedic surgery

We monitor your treatment progress, and we’ll let you know when you’re well enough to safely return to work. Our team also provides the documentation you need for a workers’ compensation claim related to your diagnosis, treatments, and future medical needs.
