Work Related Injuries

Have you been injured on the job?

Work-related injuries are not unusual no matter what industry you work in. Accidents can happen anywhere. When they do occur, both employees and employers should be committed to ensuring the injured party receives the treatment they need. While the risk of injury cannot be completely eliminated from every workplace, employers should always take steps to improve safety standards and make sure that the accident does not repeat itself.

The most common work-related injuries include:

  • Slip and falls
  • Sprains
  • Fractures
  • Bone dislocations
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Concussions
  • Nerve damage
  • Injuries that require limb amputations

If left untreated, workplace injuries can lead to limited movement, loss of sensation, and an inability to continue at your job. It’s important to get the care you need. At Methodist Orthopaedic Surgical Associates, we provide comprehensive care, diagnosis, and treatment of workplace injuries. We also work with patients to help prevent future accidents.

We Are Equipped for Comprehensive Injury Care

In many cases, patients injured in workplace accidents will require diagnostic imaging to assess the extent of the damages. This may include x-rays, CT scans, or MRI. Depending on these findings, patients may be treated with pain medications, joint injections, and physical or occupational therapy. Surgery may also be required if the injuries are severe enough or the more conservative treatments are not effective.

Our team takes detailed notes of all the tests and treatments patients received. We also help patients anticipate their medical needs for the future so they can get a clear idea of what’s ahead. This is all valuable information for the insurance company should an employee file a workers’ compensation claim.
