There are an estimated four million workers injured on the job in the United States every year. These injuries range from traumatic to chronic. The most usual organs involved are in the head, lungs, spine, back, hands, arms, legs and eyes. Work injuries can occur in an industrial and office setting. Causes of work injuries include exposure to hazards, manual handling of heavy items, misuse of equipment, poor ergonomics, failure of equipment and co-worker error.
The current Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation (BWC) system can be difficult to understand and navigate as an injured worker in Ohio. Our physicians are Ohio BWC certified, and we are currently accepting injured worker cases as physician of record (POR) for new and old cases. Many family physicians and specialists no longer accept Ohio BWC patients as POR, leaving many injured workers with no way to get the necessary treatment, have the necessary paperwork filled out, and compensation forms completed.
We accept workers comp patients which may or may not need care in our office. As Certified Ohio BWC physicians we can manage your case as POR and still get you the care and treatment that is appropriate and necessary, even if it is not a case that requires chiropractic care. We work closely with many medical physicians and specialists if your case is in need of medical care or you need to see a specialist.
An initial consultation and examination does not need pre-certified, and you do not need to have a referral to see us. We have highly trained staff that can help with the necessary paperwork and make sure your case is handled correctly, and you get the necessary treatment to properly heal your injury and return you to work.
