Whether you have an injury that occurred during an on-site work accident or if the injury has developed due to repetitive muscle strain over time, Pain Physicians NY can assess your pain and put you on a custom pain management regime that will heal you and build strength to prevent further injury. The professionals at Pain Physicians NY are fully trained in the treatment of work-related injuries.
Work-related injuries can result from the day-to-day tasks of an occupation. Commonly treated work-related injuries result from repetitive muscle strain and fall under the umbrella terms of Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS), or Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).
These conditions tend to result from a number of work-related factors including repetitive movement, prolonged muscle tension, awkward or constricted postures, forceful holding or movement, poor ergonomics, and more.
Other Work-Related Injuries
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- De Quervain Syndrome
- Intersection Syndrome
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfer’s Elbow
- Trigger Finger
- Radial Tunnel Syndrome
- Facial Dystonia
Symptoms of common work-related injuries tend to progressively worsen over time. Some early symptoms may include:
- Aches and pains
- Hot or cold feelings
- Muscle discomfort
- Muscle tightness and spasms
- Numbness and tingling
Treatment of Work-Related Injuries
The professionals at Pain Physicians NY will begin treating your OOS with an evaluation of your condition, known as a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE). This comprehensive test will be done several times throughout your physical rehabilitation, monitoring your progress and gauging when you will be able to safely return to work or how big of a workload you can take on.
The rehabilitation specialists will work with you to properly assess your injury and start you on a pain management and treatment regime to get you back into motion — the pain-free way.
For every patient at Pain Physicians NY, there will be a customized regime designed for their condition, degree of injury, range of motion and more. The advanced pain management exercise program will be designed so that the patient will regain range of motion, endurance, strength, core stabilization and cardiovascular conditioning. The physicians will also teach ways to safely return to work and prevent injury.
