The Work Clinic defines primary injury care as treating non-emergency injuries sustained at work. This include lacerations, closed fractures, sprains, as well as back and eye injuries. In addition, we provide medical surveillance for exposure to chemicals and blood-borne pathogens (needlestick).
Our clinic also manages occupational disease such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and degenerative disc disease.
We are able to:
- Assess and triage the injury
- Question the patient to learn how the injury occurred, the medical history of the individual, and other important information
- Counsel the patient on next steps and what to expect, in accordance with our treatment philosophy that encourages continued activity, modified duty, and early return-to-work
- Direct the patient to return to work
The Work Clinic’s focus on quality medicine and rapid treatment progression has proven to be highly effective in restoring health of the injured while reducing overall costs for employers.
