Workers Compensation Q & A

What is a workers’ compensation injury?

Workers’ compensation injuries are injuries that happen in the workplace or outside the workplace while performing work-related duties. Workers’ compensation injuries can also include any kind of injury or illness that develops in response to a workplace hazard, even if the condition doesn't happen to develop while working.

Workers’ compensation injuries are so-named because your employer's workers’ compensation insurance typically covers the cost of the care related to the injury. 

What are the common workers’ compensation injuries?

Workplace injuries can vary based on the environment and circumstances. Some common examples of workplace injuries include strains, sprains, and fractures. These injuries can cause several problems, including:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Joint pain

Workers’ compensation injuries can be quite painful and potentially even debilitating. That's why it's critical that you get help now before the injury has the chance to sideline you completely.

What happens during my first workers’ compensation appointment?

After your injury, the Elite Wellness Center team performs a full evaluation that includes a review of your accident, detailed medical history, discussion of your symptoms, and a complete physical exam. 

As a comprehensive medical care center, Elite Wellness Center has advanced diagnostic equipment like digital X-rays and ultrasound imaging on-site. After your diagnosis, your care providers create a detailed treatment plan with the goal of restoring full function and health.

How does workers’ compensation care work?

Your specific care varies according to the kind of damage, your symptoms, and your recovery needs. Typically, treatment starts with conservative care that may include:

  • Rest 
  • Schedule and activity modification
  • Chiropractic care
  • Physical therapy
  • Oral medication as-needed

Depending on your rate of healing and needs, the Elite Wellness Center team may also recommend regenerative medicine treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Regenerative medicine treatments use natural substances that can start cellular renewal in the areas where you need it. Research suggests this can lead to accelerated recovery and pain relief so you can get back to work with no restrictions.
