Worker's Comp & Auto Accident Injuries Q & A

What types of workers’ compensation injuries require treatment?

Workers’ compensation injuries are any injuries that occur in the workplace or due to the activities you perform at work. Common types of workplace injuries include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)
  • Sprained ankles
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle strain
  • Tendinitis
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain

The team treats all types of workplace injuries and provides effective pain-relief solutions to help you get back to work as quickly as possible.

What are the most common car accident injuries?

In some cases, auto accident injuries aren’t apparent right away and the pain may take a few days to set in once the shock of your accident has subsided. The most common types of injuries sustained in auto collisions include:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness and decreased range of motion
  • Shoulder pain
  • Numbness and tingling in your arms and hands
  • Hip pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain

Depending on the severity of your accident, you may sustain some or all of these injuries. If you’ve been involved in any type of accident,  including a low-speed collision below 20 mph, schedule an exam at Ortho One Jacksonville immediately to rule out major complications and screen for potential injuries, even if you’re not currently in pain.

When should I get treatment after a work injury or car accident?

If you’ve been injured at work or in a car accident, you should get treatment at Ortho One Jacksonville as soon as possible. Proper documentation of your injuries and an accurate diagnosis can lead to better treatment outcomes and reduce your risk of developing chronic pain or lasting disability.

The team takes a proactive approach to workers’ compensation and auto accident injuries and provides timely diagnostic testing and treatment to begin your recovery process immediately. The team can help you determine which activities need to be avoided at work or home until your condition improves, as well as modifications you can make to your daily lifestyle to avoid increasing your discomfort.

Treatment options for workers’ compensation and auto accident injuries vary depending on the type of injury you sustain. Cuts, bruises, and scrapes tend to heal most quickly, though whiplash and joint injuries can linger for weeks or months, if left untreated.

Early diagnosis and treatment can reduce your recovery time and help you get back to work or your normal routine more quickly than rest alone.
