What is Workers' Compensation
If you have been injured on the job and are seeking treatment for your injury, you may be wondering who will pay for your medical care. Thankfully, there are laws in place to ensure that you will not have to cover these expenses.
Workers' compensation covers many forms of physical injuries that happen while you are at work. Whether your injury resulted from a traumatic accident, or stems from the repetitive stress of typing or other activities, you may be eligible for compensation for the medical costs incurred as a result of your workplace injury.
Workers' compensation systems vary from state to state. They are designed to ensure that if you are injured or disabled on the job, you will not have to cover the medical bills related to this injury. Employers must pay for a workers' compensation insurance policy to cover any workers' comp claims that may be made in the event of an injury.
What Does Workers' Compensation Cover?
Workers' compensation laws provide medical benefits, wage replacement, and vocational rehabilitation for employees who have been injured while at work. This form of insurance covers many types of medical care. In addition to any services provided in the emergency room, at a hospital, or through your primary care provider, workers' compensation may also cover chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, and other forms of complementary medicine.
Chiropractic Care for Workplace Injuries
At Advanced Spine & Rehabilitation, we see many patients who are recovering from a work injury. Chiropractic has been proven effective at treating many common work injuries, such as back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, cervicogenic headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica pain. Chiropractic care can address the underlying causes of these symptoms, rather than simply masking them with painkiller medications. These techniques can prevent chronic symptoms from disrupting your work for weeks or even months, and may also prevent re-injury.
Our Henderson chiropractors can work with your workers' compensation insurance and explain the therapies available to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms. At Advanced Spine & Rehabilitation, we will develop an individualized treatment plan designed to alleviate your pain, reduce your symptoms, and get you back to work as quickly as possible.
