Injuries can occur in so many ways throughout our normal daily activities — whether they be repetitive action injuries, a slip or fall at work, or sudden injuries such as an automobile accident.
Few people walk away from an auto accident without injuries. Even in minor accidents, muscle or bone can be damaged easily through a sudden stop or a direct blow. Orthopaedics is the specialty of diagnosing and treating injuries to the musculoskeletal system. These injuries include:
Muscle strain or rupture.
Tendon inflammation, tear, or rupture.
Ligament strain, tear, or rupture.
Our skilled medical professionals specialize in early detection and rehabilitation of your orthopaedic injury, resulting in improved mobility and reduced pain.
For some people, getting injured while at work is the least painful part — navigating the workers’ compensation process can be challenging.
If you have suffered a workplace injury, it’s important to be evaluated by a medical professional. Ask your employer’s workers’ comp adjuster (or case manager) to contact us to authorize an evaluation.
While our skilled physicians diagnose and treat your medical injuries, workers’ comp coordinators assist in obtaining the necessary diagnostics authorizations and facilitate communication and documentation. Our close working relationships with case managers and insurance adjusters give you peace of mind and allows you to focus on your recovery and getting back to work as quickly and safely as possible.
Slip and fall
A slip and fall – (or trip and fall) injury can be a premises liability claim or a personal injury claim on the premises of another – when a person suffers an injury. Liability for a slip and fall injury may be based on the ownership or management of the premises where the injury occurred. While our doctors are prepared to treat your injuries, our administrative staff is prepared to help you manage the process/documentation to support a slip and fall claim.
