Workers Compensation FAQ
What is Workers’ Comp?
If you were injured on the job, you might be worried about lost wages or the impact this injury will have on your career. Coping with a workplace injury can be physically and emotionally exhausting. You may experience high levels of stress or have trouble sleeping.
Fortunately, workers’ comp can help you cope with some of these difficulties. Workers’ comp is a type of insurance that provides financial help to employees injured on the job. With workers’ comp, your employer covers your medical expenses so you can receive the medical care you need.
What sort of injuries can happen in the workplace?
Some jobs are indeed riskier than others. But unexpected accidents can occur anywhere, even inside a well-maintained office building. Many workers injure their back or neck after falling in their workplace. Lifting heavy objects is another common cause of workplace injuries.
Computer use has also become a standard part of most jobs. As a result, many office workers are at risk for repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. Anyone who does most of their work at a computer may be at risk for these injuries.
What are my treatment options for workplace injuries?
If you’re struggling to cope with a workplace injury, your doctor may offer to prescribe pain medication. These drugs can help with short-term pain. But they aren’t an effective long-term treatment. That’s because pain medication only masks your symptoms. It does nothing to treat the underlying problem.
Chiropractic care is different. Chiropractic specialists aim to cure work injuries using noninvasive natural techniques. These treatments promote healing and allow you to return to work as you recover.
At The Injury Center, LLC, Dr. Wyrwas performs in-depth evaluations to get to the root of your pain. Once he identifies the source of your pain, he creates a customized treatment plan. Your treatment plan is designed to restore healthy physical function. The goal of each treatment is to help you return to your normal activities, pain-free.
What kind of chiropractic services are available for workers’ comp injuries?
