Workplace Injury

Injured On The Job?

On-the-job injuries are not uncommon, but what you may not know is that a majority of workplace injuries are not due to a single traumatic incident, but overuse from repetitive movements.

Repeat stress can be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back. Whether you sustain a traumatic injury or an overuse injury at work, visit us for an evaluation and treatment.

Dedication Beyond The Rest

If you’ve been injured in your workplace, you aren’t alone — thousands of people get injured at work each year. At Injury Care Centers Inc., we understand how important your job, and the income it provides, is to your ability to care for your family.

Employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance to protect their employees, but most of the time, this leaves you out of a job and battling for your hard-earned entitlements. We understand that when you sustain an injury, it is about much more than being compensated fairly and your goal has more to do with regaining function and living your life to the fullest.

Chiropractic Care for Work Related Injuries RiverdaleLed by Dr. Natalie, the chiropractic care team at Injury Care Centers Inc., will quickly assess how to address whatever you’re dealing with and resolve it at the root.

Nearly a third of workplace injuries are musculoskeletal, meaning that it affects ligaments, muscles, tendons, bones, and nerves. Chiropractic care can make an incredible difference in your ability to heal and overcome these injuries.

A personalized care plan that involves a variety of treatments including manual manipulation, massage therapy, and physical therapy, all aimed at targeting your injury from a different perspective to offer a holistic recovery plan.

We Can Help With The Paperwork Too!

When you are injured on the job, it is not as simple as working light duty and taking the time to recover. Workplace injuries come with a lot of paperwork — HR incident report, workers’ comp insurance claim, report to state worker’s comp board, medical documentation and information regarding the ability to return to work, just to name a few. Our skilled care team can easily help with all of it so you don’t have to stress.

We’ll make it easy to coordinate with your employer and insurance company in order to keep the processes moving and get you the chiropractic care you need and deserve. We want to give you the maximum benefit for the time you spend in rehabilitation and make sure your results last.

It is estimated that one in three people suffer a workplace injury, but many less than that report it or seek treatment. Not seeking treatment for your injury could lead to it worsening, early retirement, or forced disability. Avoid chronic pain and allowing your work to suffer because of an injury. In many cases, a simple chiropractic treatment plan and improved posture can help reduce injury. In other cases, modifying the ergonomics of the work station may help.

What To Do If You Are Injured At Work

If you are injured at work, either in an accident or by overuse, the first thing you’ll need to do is let your HR department know. Each workplace will have its own policy and procedure of the forms you’ll need to fill out and assessments you’ll need to have. This helps to protect both you and your employer. It is important to report as soon as possible and be as honest and thorough as possible.

It is likely that you’ll be referred to see an occupational health specialist, but it is important for you to understand the laws and your rights. Once you have sought medical evaluation, you will likely be referred for follow-on treatment including physical therapy or chiropractic care.

If you have suffered a back, neck, or any other musculoskeletal injury at work, contact Dr. Natalie and the team at Injury Care Centers for an evaluation and treatment.
