Work Related Injuries
If you’re hurt on the job, it’s important to report it to your employer right away, and to seek treatment as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to file a workers’ compensation claim.
Go To Ortho lets you go directly to the most qualified specialists first for better outcomes and with less hassle. During an appointment at Go To Ortho, you will get an immediate diagnosis of the injury, corrective treatment, and medication, if needed, by our team of specialists. We’ll also discuss long-term options for recovery.
Work Related Injuries
Common work injuries include:
- Cuts and wounds
- Sprains and strains
- Scrapes and bruises
- Pulls and tears
- Strains from overexertion
- Falls, slips and trips
- Struck by an object
- Pain from repetitive motion
If you are injured on the job, you may not feel pain until hours or days later. Typical injury symptoms are sharp pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness, particularly as a result of a fall, collision or repetitive strain.
Even if an injury doesn’t hurt at first, it can cause chronic pain if left untreated. Whether you feel pain immediately or days later, Go To Ortho can help you with your injury – no appointment necessary.
