What is Workman’s Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is an insurance program for employee, which is mandated by each individual state.  The purpose of workers’ compensation is to pay employees who are injured on the job or who suffer illnesses as a result of their work.

Generally speaking, employees who incur work-related injuries or illness may receive workmans’ comp benefits no matter who was at fault for the impairment.  This type of benefit is also commonly referred to as workers’ comp, workers’ compensation insurance, or workman’s comp.

If you’ve been injured on the job, it’s essential to see a medical professional right away.  At Advanced Back & Neck Care, we offer:

  • Same-day appointments when needed.
  • Years of experience with worker’s compensation case workers.
  • Swift evaluation of work-related injuries.
  • Prompt, personalized treatment plans.

Our comprehensive and timely status reports will help you keep everything organized so you can obtain the maximum workers’ comp benefits with minimal stress.  We don’t believe in simply treating the pain and sending you back to work.  We focus on fixing the injury and getting to the core of its cause, correcting the problem from its very roots so you won’t endure chronic pain going forward.

Treating the Work Injury

At Advanced Back and Neck Care, we use a combination of care options to treat the pain and fix the injury.  We work with our patients to identify the circumstances that caused the injury so we can correct the problem permanently, taking preventative actions to avoid re-injury and chronic pain.

Work-related injuries can occur in a variety of forms.  Our experience professionals work with patients who suffer from:

  • Acute pain;
  • Sudden back pain resulting from a fall or a lifting injury;
  • Chronic and insidious work injuries such as repetitive motion injuries, which commonly occur in the rotator cuff (shoulder) or cause carpal tunnel syndrome in the hand and arm;
  • Poor work posture that causes neck strain, body pain, and headaches.

In each case, we correct the damaged body structure that caused the symptoms by way of relieving nerve pressure, removing scar tissue, and calming inflammation. We then correct the circumstances that led to the injury in the first place.  This may involve improving ergonomics and work posture or working with the patient to develop a stronger core strength and flexibility.
