Workers Compensation Q & A

What is a worker’s compensation treatment?

Worker’s compensation treatment refers to any type of medical care used to address a work-related injury. Even if you wear the proper safety gear and follow all necessary protocols, it’s possible to experience a fall, pull a muscle, or suffer an overuse injury as a result of regular work activities. 

If you experience a work-related injury, it’s important to seek medical help as quickly as possible. Doing so can limit your risk of developing complications and help you return to work sooner rather than later. 

At Pinnacle Pain Management Specialists, Dr. Jain has more than 14 years of experience as a pain management professional. His attention to detail and care for his patients don't go unnoticed either; he's considered one of the top five pain management doctors in the Chicago area.

What problems can a worker’s compensation treatment address?

At Pinnacle Pain Management Specialists, Dr. Jain diagnoses and treats a variety of common work-related injuries, including:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Slipped discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Concussions
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Memory loss
  • Sleep impairment

Worker’s compensation treatment can also address overuse injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and osteoarthritis.

What is the process for diagnosing work-related injuries?

To diagnose a work-related injury, Dr. Jain asks you questions about the events leading up to your injury or accident and about the symptoms you’re experiencing.

Next, he conducts a physical exam, gently presses on the area of your body that hurts, and asks you to perform a series of range-of-motion exercises. 

If these measures don't provide enough information, Dr. Jain might also order X-rays or an MRI to look for a fracture or visible injury to soft tissues such as your muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Are there different types of worker’s compensation treatments?

At Pinnacle Pain Management Specialists, Dr. Jain offers several types of worker’s compensation treatments. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, he might recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, regenerative medicine, epidural steroid injections, or nerve blocks.

If your injury doesn’t respond to these more conservative treatments, you might benefit from an intrathecal pain pump or spinal cord stimulation.
