Do you need a doctor that treats work-related injuries? Often, there can be added pressure involved in the situation when you are injured at work. There can be pressure from your boss to downplay the injury, pressure from your family to return to work too early, and the general financial strain that is felt after a work-related accident. Call 22 Health today to speak with a doctor who understands your injury.
What Are Considered Work-related Injuries and Why Do They Matter?
Any injury that occurs at the workplace can be considered for worker’s compensation. Worker’s compensation is a way to provide complimentary treatment for those who have been injured on the job. Injuries may occur at any office, no matter how seemingly tame the environment. From strains and sprains to broken bones, work-related injuries are common and need attention as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
If an injury can be proven to be work-related, you are entitled to receive treatment for no cost, allowing you to get the care you need for your recovery.
Many work-related injuries are caused by the following:
- Poor posture
- Consistent sitting, typing and writing
- Being hit by an object
- Electrical problems
Even if you do not feel any pain at the time of the injury, you will still need to get it evaluated to make sure that the event didn’t cause an underlying problem that will surface later. Many falls may not have any noticeable symptoms at first, but can knock bones and muscles out of alignment. This can cause pain and discomfort weeks and months after the fall. Evaluating your condition allows you to treat the problem early before it gets worse and causes significant pain.
The most common work-related injuries involve the neck and back because of sensitive parts such as:
Even the lightest tweak to your neck or back can cause serious pain. Our doctors at 22 Health will use a variety of treatment methods and techniques to stop your pain and get you back to work as quickly as possible. However, it is critical that you wait to return to work until you are sufficiently healed. We’re here to offer the counsel and treatment to work toward your full and complete recovery. Talk to our worker’s compensation doctor at 22 Health to get more information for the treatment of your condition.
Working With Your Employer and Worker’s Compensation
We will work with your employer, specifically with the worker’s compensation and human resources departments, to obtain pre-approval for any visit and help you set up any claims necessary.
