We will get you back to work
If you are hurt on the job, you have the right to chiropractic care and/or physical therapy paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation coverage. Before you seek care, you have to report the work-related injury to your employer to open a claim. If your employer has a company doctor, you may have to see them first before getting a referral to come to us. Since we have been in business over 25 years, we have great relationships with physicians, employers, and insurance companies in the area. Once your claim is open, we are here to guide you and treat you on your journey to recovery. It all starts with an evaluation by Dr. Todd Antovich, DC to find acute and underlying injuries related to your occupation. Ultrasound, x-ray, and other diagnostic imaging may be used to identify your injuries. We will even work with your primary care physician to order an MRI if necessary. Once the issue is identified, a treatment plan will be created by our experienced workers’ compensation chiropractor and physical therapist. A treatment plan may include:
- Joint Manipulation
- Spinal Decompression
- Joint Mobilization
- Soft Tissue Massage
- Exercise and Physical Rehabilitation
- Home Care and Activity Modification Advice
- Nutritional and Dietary Consulting
- And other treatments…
A few more things you should know…
Contrary to popular belief, most work-related injuries do not happen in major accidents. Most work-related injuries are caused by overuse, improper technique/form, and repetitive stress. Even the smallest of tasks, when repeated over time with poor posture, can have a detrimental effect. Lifting boxes, twisting, and even typing at a desk can lead to repetitive stress in the spine or carpal tunnel syndrome in the hands. Luckily for our patients, we have a high success rate with workers’ compensation cases in Elk Grove and the greater Sacramento area. The sooner you seek treatment for your injury, the sooner you can recover and get back to work.
