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.
