Injured On the Job? What You Need to Know

Chiropractors frequently see patients who have suffered from injuries sustained while on the job. Workplaces such as construction sites are particularly hazardous; however, injuries can even occur in seemingly safe offices—and any other type of workplace. If you've been injured on the job, don't delay seeking help. A Phoenix chiropractor can conduct a thorough evaluation, provide an accurate diagnosis, and handle your workers' compensation claim.

Assessing Workplace Injuries

When you seek chiropractic care for your workplace injuries, you'll undergo a thorough evaluation to diagnose your injuries and their potential cause. First, you can expect a consultation, during which you'll discuss your symptoms and when they first developed. Describe where your pain is and whether it's relieved by rest or activity. To determine the cause of your workplace injuries, the chiropractor may ask you about your medical history, family history, dietary habits, and your history of other treatments, such as spine surgery. The chiropractor will also discuss your occupational history with you, such as whether you're required to stand or sit for long periods, and whether your job requires repetitive motions or heavy lifting. Then, your chiropractor will perform a physical exam, including static and motion palpation techniques, to pinpoint the exact location of your back pain.

Working Toward a Pain-Free Future

Your chiropractic care plan will be individually tailored to your needs. You may need a series of sessions for chiropractic adjustments to realign the bones of your spine and relieve your pain. Chiropractors also emphasize the importance of preventing a recurrence of workplace injuries. You can work with your chiropractor to learn about ways of modifying the ergonomics of your work environment to reduce the risk of suffering from back or neck pain again.

Obtaining Workers' Compensation

When you're injured on the job, your chiropractic care is covered by workers' compensation. This is a type of insurance program that employers are legally required to have. Workers' compensation will cover your medical bills related to the diagnosis and treatment of your injury. If your injury prevents you from working for a period of time, it will also compensate you for a portion of your wages. Bring your workers' compensation paperwork to the chiropractor's office with you; they can handle your claim on your behalf.
