Occupational Medicine Q & A

How can occupational medicine help with my workplace injury?

Medical Access specializes in the treatment and management of work injuries and can provide the comprehensive care you need to manage your unexpected workplace injury. 

They also have considerable experience in supporting employees who are seeking workers’ compensation, a program that provides no-fault insurance coverage for expenses caused by workplace injuries.

The family medicine specialists are up-to-date on federal and state guidelines regarding work injuries and can provide the timely and effective care you need so you get back to work as quickly and safely as possible. 

During your initial work injury visit, the team reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam. Diagnostic tests, such as X-rays or MRIs, are also completed to confirm or rule out a diagnosis and help with the development of your treatment plan.

The team then provides you with your personalized work injury treatment plan, which may include medication, activity modification, and a referral to physical therapy. You will continue to follow up with the occupational medicine specialists at Medical Access until you’ve recovered from your work injury. 

Throughout your treatment, the team adjusts your plan to assist with the healing process, which may include referrals to other specialists as needed.
