Workers’ Comp Injuries Q & A

What are common workers’ comp injuries?

Whether you have a terrible accident at work or you sustain an injury over months and years, Dr. Klein has years of experience helping injured workers re-establish their quality of life.

Can I see a chiropractor while I’m receiving workers’ comp from my employer?

Most likely, yes. In the state of Pennsylvania, worker’s comp insurance plans do provide coverage for work-related injuries, but you’ll need to talk to your employer to understand the specifics of your plan.

How does chiropractic care help with workers’ comp injuries?

Dr. Klein is skilled in caring for men and women who suffer from injuries sustained on the job. At Everybody’s Chiropractic, you have access to a range of services and techniques to help you overcome pain and restore your quality of life.

Your dedicated doctor talks to you about what you do at your job, how the injury happened, and what you are experiencing so he can write a custom plan to restore your health.

Is chiropractic treatment safe if I’m already injured?

Chiropractic care is noninvasive and doesn’t rely on drugs or medications, so it’s widely regarded as holistic and safe for all ages. Dr. Klein uses innovative and time-tested techniques and exercises to speed up the healing process. 

Not only do they help you overcome a workplace injury, but they teach you proper movement so you can protect yourself from future problems or repeat injury.

How many chiropractic treatments do I need for my workplace injury?

Workers’ compensation injuries vary drastically from person to person, so there’s no definitive number of treatments. At your first appointment, your chiropractor conducts a comprehensive physical exam and gathers details about your injury. 

With that information, he writes a custom treatment plan that outlines the number of recommended visits to help you feel good again.
