Workers Compensation Q & A

What is worker’s compensation?

Worker’s compensation is a form of insurance that employers hold to cover the costs of injuries that happen on the job. No matter what type of work you do, there is likely an increased risk of some musculoskeletal injury, whether those injuries are chronic or acute.

When you qualify for worker’s compensation, the funds cover the evaluations, treatment, and injury rehabilitation. They also cover the income you miss out on because of missed work as you go through treatment. Immediately after an injury, you should report to your supervisor, who advises you on the necessary paperwork. 

At MiSpine Chiropractic, Dr. Raychouni can evaluate your injury and give your employer a report of the details. He can also provide an individualized rehabilitative care plan to help you recover fully so that you can return to work as quickly as possible. 

What are some common workplace injuries?

Dr. Raychouni primarily treats job-related musculoskeletal injuries from overuse or sudden onset. Many possible injuries can affect you during work, including:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon tears
  • Tendinitis
  • Dislocations
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome

After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Raychouni discusses the injuries and the projected timeframe for their healing with you. In many cases, healing from a workplace injury involves home care alongside clinical chiropractic care like physiotherapy and manual manipulation. 

What happens during a worker’s compensation evaluation?

In Michigan, your medical provider is pre-selected for the first 28 days after you file for worker’s compensation. After that, you can choose your chiropractor or another provider if you get approval from the Disability Management Office and other necessary parties.  

If you opt for worker’s compensation care at MiSpine Chiropractic, Dr. Raychouni performs an examination and asks about your symptoms. He may ask you to perform simple tests and tasks so he can get a feel for any mobility limitations that result from your injury. 

Often, imaging tests are necessary for worker’s compensation evaluations. These tests show your musculoskeletal system in detail by creating an image using sound waves, radiation, and similar methods. Dr. Raychouni can make a more precise diagnosis using the results of an imaging test. 

Dr. Raychouni then determines how you can benefit from the services available at MiSpine Chiropractic. You get a detailed report for your employer that states your injury and the necessary treatments.
