Work Injuries Workers Compensation
For those who were seriously injured at work, work injuries workers compensation is a viable option to help pay for the costs of treatment and therapies needed to make a full recovery. We accept workers compensation as a method of payment.
Workers’ Compensation for Treatment & Therapy
If you were injured on the job, workers’ compensation may be the best option for paying treatment costs. In Maryland, injured employees are required to have suffered the injury while at work and the injury must have been an “accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.”
Under such circumstances as these, medical and chiropractic bills may be eligible to be paid for by workers’ compensation insurance or directly by your employer. Many of our patients who are seeking our treatment and therapy services have a lawyer, but know that it is not required to receive treatment at our facility. If you have questions about how to use workers compensation to cover treatment costs for your injury, contact our offices. We are happy to answer any questions that you have.
Common Work Injuries

You can usually use workers’ compensation to help pay for the necessary treatments for injuries you sustained as a result of a slip and fall accident. Our team is happy to coordinate with involved parties regarding use of compensation you received for therapy needed for your injuries.
Repetitive Strain Injuries
Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) can easily arise from repetitive motions and overexertion. After extended periods of time completing the same motions, injuries commonly occur in the Fingers and thumbs, wrists, elbows, arms, shoulders, back, and knees. Any motion or movement, from typing to moving heavy boxes can damage the body over time and cause a repetitive strain injury. RSI may arise from improper lifting technique, lifting, pushing or carrying, assembly line tasks, or even typing without proper ergonomics.
Conditions seen in more physically demanding jobs such as moving or construction can easily lead to overexertion injuries. Similar to repetitive strain injuries, overexertion injuries arise from normal work duties but are typically preventable. Back injuries such as pulled back muscles, spinal cord damage, slipped discs, or cracked vertebrae can happen as a direct result of overexertion. These injuries are most commonly observed among workers doing heavy manual labor based jobs.
Equipment and falling objects striking workers and resulting injury.
For example, if you work in shipping and receiving of a grocery store, a shipment of food that shifted during transit could unexpectedly fall on you and break your knee. When struck by a falling object, or hit by a piece of heavy machinery, the resulting injuries can be severe and require an extended therapy program in order to regain full functionality in the area that was injured.
Crashes or collisions involving work vehicles.
Regardless of safety measures that are in place, when vehicles are an integral part of your daily work responsibilities, accidents are likely to eventually happen. Work injuries involving vehicles range in severity and may require physical therapy to recover fully.
