Workplace Injuries Q&A

What are workplace injuries?

Workplace injuries refer to injuries or accidents that occur when you’re on the job. Lifting, falling, and repetitive motions may all lead to a workplace injury. These activities may cause physical problems such as:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Pain conditions
  • Fractures

Workplace injuries may result from a single accident or develop over time from overexertion or repeating the same movements over and over again. 

Wisconsin Spine and Pain specializes in diagnosing and treating workplace injuries. 

The team works closely with you and your employer to make sure you get the care you need for a safe and fast recovery so you can get back to your usual responsibilities. 

When should I seek medical care for workplace injuries?

You should seek medical care for your workplace injury right away. Even if you have no pain or symptoms, it’s important to get an evaluation and treatment plan in place as soon as possible.

Delaying your initial workplace injury evaluation may prolong your recovery. 

How are workplace injuries diagnosed?

Workplace injuries vary, and the team at Wisconsin Spine and Pain conducts comprehensive evaluations to ensure you get the proper diagnosis. 

During your assessment, your provider asks detailed questions about your job, how the injury occurred, and the initial symptoms, if any. They review your medical history and perform a physical exam. 

To confirm or rule out a diagnosis, the Wisconsin Spine and Pain team runs various diagnostic tests, which may include blood work, urinalysis, X-rays, ultrasound testing, CT scan, or MRI. 

If your provider suspects a nerve injury, you may undergo nerve conduction studies. 

The team may also conduct a disability evaluation or functional capacity evaluation, which helps determine if and when it’s safe for you to return to your usual job duties. 

How are workplace injuries treated?

Treatment for your workplace injury depends on your diagnosis, symptoms, job, and medical history. Wisconsin Spine and Pain utilizes many state-of-the-art treatments and therapies to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible.
