Work accidents and overuse injuries Treated

How is a workplace injury managed?

 

Work-related accidents and overuse injuries frequently necessitate orthopedic care. Following a review of your medical history; a comprehensive examination is conducted. This may involve a neurological assessment and an evaluation of your current strength and job performance capability.

The primary objective is to alleviate pain while promoting injury recovery. Treatment options may include immobilizing the injured area, medication, or using supportive aids for mobility.

Therapeutic injections, physical therapy, or occupational therapy may also be prescribed. Surgery may be warranted in certain cases to realign fractured bones, reconstruct torn ligaments, or address other musculoskeletal issues.

Treatment options for work-related injuries vary depending on the type and severity of the injury.

 

Here are some common work injury treatment options:

  1. Immobilization: For fractures or severe sprains, immobilization with splints, braces, or casts may be necessary to allow the injured area to heal properly.

  2. Medication: Pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants may be prescribed to manage pain and inflammation associated with the injury.

  3. Physical Therapy: Exercises and rehabilitation programs designed to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion may be recommended to aid in recovery and prevent future injuries.

  4. Occupational Therapy: Occupational therapists can help individuals regain skills necessary for performing daily tasks and returning to work safely after an injury.

  5. Therapeutic Injections: Injections such as corticosteroids or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be used to reduce inflammation and promote healing in certain cases.

  6. Orthopedic Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be required to repair damaged tissues, such as fractured bones, torn ligaments, or herniated discs.

  7. Assistive Devices: Devices such as crutches, braces, or orthotics may be recommended to provide support and aid in mobility during the recovery process.

  8. Education and Counseling: Providing education about injury prevention and proper ergonomics in the workplace, as well as counseling to address any psychological effects of the injury, can be important aspects of treatment.

  9. Alternative Therapies: Modalities such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, or massage therapy may be used as complementary treatments to alleviate pain and promote healing.
