Work Related Injuries

Functional Recovery From Work-Related Injuries

Our philosophy promotes the goal of regaining function.

What is a Work Related Injury?

A work injury is an injury or illness that occurs when you are performing your duties during the course of work activities. Being injured on the job often results in time lost at work, and Workers’ Compensation was designed to provide protection to employees and their dependents from any financial or emotional hardships that are caused from a work-related injury. Injury resulting from employee negligence is usually not covered under Workers’ Comp. However, pre-existing conditions may actually be covered if the work-related injury aggravated or worsened the pre-exiting condition.

Warner Orthopedics and Wellness is available to diagnose and treat your work related injuries to the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle or foot.

What Happens with a Work Related Injury?

When you’re injured on the job, your employer will require a significant amount of information about the incident that led to your injury, as well as the extent of the injury itself as a part of the workers’ compensation process. The first of these items is the initial evalutation. During your initial evaluation you will be examined by an independent physician or orthpedic surgeon to assess the extent of your injuries.

Once your evaluation has been completed, the doctor will recommend a course of treatment. Your employer will require a detailed evaluation and diagnosis of your injuries, and a recommended treatment plan from your evaluating doctor. Your treatment recommendation will include ongoing treatment recommendations and a plan to help you recover quickly, so you can return to work in a timely manner.
