Workers Compensation

What are some common workplace injuries?

Every job comes with a risk of injury. Even spending all day sitting at a desk in front of a computer screen can take a toll on your neck, back, and eye health. Certain occupations, however, carry a higher risk of musculoskeletal injury.

Some of the more common types of workplace injuries include:

  • Being struck by an object
  • Having a portion of your body compressed or crushed by equipment
  • Slips and falls
  • Overexertion from lifting or carrying
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Injuries sustained when something falls or collapses onto your body

These are just some of the ways you can suffer a workplace injury. Getting the right training and consistently employing proper safety techniques can reduce your risk, but sometimes accidents happen at work and cause injuries.

When should I seek care for a workers’ compensation injury?

If you suffer an injury while on the job, taking prompt action is essential to a positive outcome. That’s true in regard to the healing process and in relation to your workers’ compensation claim.

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that protects workers from loss if they become injured as a result of their job duties. Employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance at no cost to employees.

The legalities of workers’ compensation can be complex. What is simple is the fact that seeking treatment right away and documenting your injuries is an essential part of the process.

How can chiropractic care help with workers’ compensation?

When you turn to Ascent Chiropractic for care, you are in the hands of a skilled team of practitioners. Your provider assesses your condition and clearly explains your treatment options.

The full details of your injury are documented and included in your personal record. Your anticipated treatment plan is also outlined. As you move through treatment, your provider updates those records.

Workers’ compensation claims are far easier to navigate with the proper documentation. Don’t place your health and your right to compensation at risk by delaying proper treatment, or by choosing a provider who is uninformed on the specifics of workers’ compensation.
