Workers Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that virtually all Maryland employers are required to maintain for their employees. It ensures that employees who experience a workplace injury get proper compensation for medical expenses and lost work associated with their injury.

When do I need workers’ compensation care?

If you experience any injury that causes pain and forces you to miss work due to a workplace accident, you need workers’ compensation care. The workers’ compensation process can be complicated, with a lot of paperwork and appointments to keep up with. 

Dabbs Rehab Center of MD streamlines your workers’ compensation care, guiding you through the recovery process from start to finish so you can focus on recovery instead of paperwork.

How does the workers' compensation treatment process work?

The workers’ compensation treatment process starts after your diagnosis. You’ll have a complete physical exam, thorough case review, and diagnostic procedures like X-rays and nerve conduction testing in the Dabbs Rehab Center of MD office to get an accurate diagnosis. 

Then, your specialists craft a personalized recovery schedule, including a detailed treatment plan and a projected return-to-work date. Most workers’ compensation patients receive physical therapy and chiropractic care. 

Physical therapy

Physical therapy involves noninvasive treatments such as heat therapy, cold therapy, therapeutic massage, and electrical stimulation for pain relief. 

You’ll also learn special exercises to rebuild your strength and increase your range of motion as you prepare to return to work. 

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care involves many techniques that restore optimal spinal alignment. A problem in your spine, common after an injury, can cause severe pain and even disrupt your nervous system function. 

Chiropractic care realigns your spine, alleviates pressure, reduces inflammation, and helps you heal as quickly as possible. In fact, studies show that patients who took the chiropractic care route incurred lower recovery costs and lost less time from work compared to those who chose other recovery paths. 

Dabbs Rehab Center of MD offers comprehensive care, so if you need additional help from a naturopathic doctor or medical doctor during your recovery, you can get everything you need right away.
