What Is Workers’ Compensation?
Worker’s Compensation is a type of insurance that can be used to cover any medical expenses or lost wages that result from an injury at the workplace. In the state of Minnesota, workers’ compensation covers not only medical benefits, but can also cover chiropractic care. In fact, many patients prefer to seek chiropractic treatment for workplace injuries as a safe way to treat their injury without medication or invasive procedures. Through adjustments and other chiropractic treatment techniques, we are able to treat a wide variety of different injuries. Some of the most common injuries we see in our clinic include back strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs, and sciatica.
Workers’ Compensation And Chiropractic Care.
Following your work-related injury, it’s important to seek care right away. Before beginning treatment, Dr. Bomberg will provide you with a thorough examination and diagnosis of any injuries you have experienced. Once a diagnosis has been made, he will develop a custom treatment plan to treat those specific injuries. If you’re looking for non-invasive ways to treat your workplace injury, chiropractic therapy is a great way to see lasting results.
Through adjustments and other techniques, Dr. Bomberg can treat the affected area for gentle but effective relief from your injury. Our goal is to not only correct any misalignment, but to also treat the surrounding tissues and support a faster healing process. Even with injuries that occur at the workplace, you have the right to choose your own physician.
What To Do If You’ve Been Injured.
