Workers' Compensation Q & A

What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that covers medical costs and other expenses if one of your employees suffers an accident or an injury on the job.

If you own or operate a business and you have several employees, you’re required by law to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. Staying current on your policy can provide peace of mind and reduce the risk of potential penalties or fines.

What types of injuries does Workers' Compensation treat?

At Alleviate Pain, Dr. Parmar uses workers’ compensation to treat a wide range of work-related injuries, including:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Crush Injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs)
  • Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS)

Dr. Parmar also treats injuries that occur while operating company vehicles or equipment.

What should I do if an employee or claimant needs Workers' Compensation?

If an employee or insurance claimant needs workers’ compensation, call Dr. Parmar at Alleviate Pain right away. In Florida, employers must conduct workers’ compensation visits through an authorized provider.

During the call, let Dr. Parmar know about the events surrounding the injury, including when it occurred, what the employee was doing, and the symptoms they’re currently experiencing. 

After gathering the necessary information, Dr. Parmar can help treat your employee or claimant.

What happens during a Workers' Compensation visit?

At Alleviate Pain, Dr. Parmar tailors workers’ compensation visits to your employee’s needs.

He reviews your employee’s medical records and asks about their symptoms, including when they started, their severity, and if at-home treatments provide relief. Next, Dr. Parmar does a physical exam. 

If your employee experiences back or joint pain, he looks for signs of redness, swelling, or bruising. Dr. Parmar also orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI to rule out underlying issues, like arthritis or a broken bone.

After identifying the cause of your employee’s discomfort, Dr. Parmar makes treatment recommendations. Throughout treatment, he provides you and your management team with updates on your employee’s progress.

To make arrangements for workers’ compensation services for your employee or client, call Alleviate Pain or book online today.
