Many back, neck, joint and nerve issues are caused by work-related injuries. When you are injured on the job, your medical treatment should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance that is provided by your employer. Our medical team at Hanowell Spine Clinic can diagnose and treat many common workplace injuries, helping relieve pain and hasten your recovery. Our clinic in Covington, GA offers work-related injury treatments covered by workers’ compensation insurance.
Common Types of Workplace Injuries
There are two main types of injuries that occur in the workplace, accidents and repetitive use injuries. Accidents happen without warning. A fall can injure your back or strain a major muscle group. Repetitive use injuries are very common and occur over time. These can include:
- Tunnel syndromes – carpal, cubital, tarsal and radial
- Chronic back pain
- Joint damage
- Pinched nerves – cervical and lumbar radiculopathy
Both accidental and repetitive use work-related injuries can impact your ability to perform your job duties and may interfere with your quality of life. Receiving the right treatment ensures that the source of pain or limited mobility is addressed, and you can return to work and other activities.
Many workplace injuries involve the spine, nerves or joints. Our medical team at Hanowell Spine Clinic specializes in resolving neck, back and joint pain using advanced, minimally-invasive treatments. Our clinics offer injection therapies that can relieve muscle spasms, joint pain, nerve pain and many common work-related injuries, as well as other non-surgical work-related injury treatments.
