Workers' Compensation Injuries
Work-related injuries are bad news for the injured worker and the employer because they mean missed work and pain. That's when the comprehensive team of experts at Premier can help. With immediate availability, we help get injured workers back to work once they are safe to return.
Whether it is a hand injury, spine injury, arm or leg injury we specialize in listening to the injured worker and getting them back to their pre-injury baseline. By accurately diagnosing and exposing the nature of the injury we work tirelessly to treat the injury and get the injured worker better. Our cost effective and results oriented approach ensures that no wasted step is taken in getting the best results. Best of all, we are right here in your backyard.
A detailed medical history is critical, along with guided questioning about the presenting injury. The patient’s answers to “What happened?”, “What were you doing when you were injured?”, and “Describe what it felt like…”, all help to determine the mechanism of injury.

Obtain a thorough history stressing the mechanism of injury.

Review X-Ray and other studies.
Render an opinion regarding the cause of the injury or ailment.
Determine the work restrictions, if any.
