Occupational medicine covers a wide range of work-related illnesses and injuries.
Physicians who specialize in occupational medicine and therapy commonly treat orthopedic conditions involving the upper and lower extremities, i.e., hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, hip, foot, and ankle problems, as well as neck and back problems.
The goal is to get the injured or sick worker back to work as quickly as possible, and to prevent further injury in the workplace. Learn more about occupational medicine and orthopedic conditions in our patient education library.
Rehabilitation of job-related injuries may include medication, occupational therapy, pain management, and orthopedic surgery.
In many cases, surgery can be avoided or postponed with occupational therapy and pain management. If surgery is necessary, recovery will generally include occupational therapy exercises and a pain management regimen.
We also provide appropriate medical treatment for work-related illnesses.
