Work-Related Injury

Fremont Physiatry Office for Injured Workers

There are many different risks attached to different industries. Some jobs, such as construction or offshore drilling, have clear risks associated with their performance: Broken bones, concussions, slip and falls / trip and falls, crush injuries, and more. Some jobs put workers at risk of toxic exposure, such as asbestos exposure or lead exposure. Even office workers and others who are not employed in positions requiring demanding physical labor can sustain injuries such as stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you were hurt on the job, a physiatrist could be able to help you get back on your feet. A physiatrist or “doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R)” is a medical professional who has focused his / her career on assisting individuals with physical disability. Treatment plans are tailored to the needs of each individual. At Washington Township Medical Foundation, we believe strongly in the importance of supporting patients by providing access to excellent care. This includes those hurt on the job. Your treatment plan could include medication, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and more.
