Individuals that are injured while performing their work duties are the main focus of our practice. We consider back and neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress syndrome and other types of pain as first signs for a workers compensation injury. We consider other symptoms and loss of function when diagnosing each condition and refer for diagnostic tests when indicated in order to make sure we understand the source of the problem. Some of the conditions that we treat as regarding workers compensation injuries include neck pain, back pain, knee pain, ankle pain, pulled hamstrings, fibromyalgia, shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, hip pain, herniated disc, joint pain, sprain of muscles, muscle weakness, tension headaches and wrist pain. Most of these conditions come as a result of repetitive activities at work such as sitting at a desk for too long and heavy lifting.

There are many services that we provide to counteract these conditions. These include therapeutic exercises, back safety programs, work hardening, work conditioning, chiropractic care, physical therapy, ultrasound therapy, chronic pain management, claims assistance, specialist referrals when necessary, cold and hot treatment, flexion distraction therapy, percussion treatment, muscle stimulation, injury rehabilitation, muscle conditioning and physical traction treatment.  Recent research has depicted that if an individual is suffering from such conditions and considers a prescribed conservative course of treatment such as we provide, then it gives the patient a faster healing process, getting them back to work quicker and back to their active daily life.

Workers’ Compensation Resources for Employees / Injured Employees 

Workers’ compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that provides covered employees with income and medical benefits if they sustain a work-related injury or illness. Texas private employers can choose whether or not to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for their employees. In most cases, your employer is required to notify you whether or not they provide coverage.

Workers’ compensation pays your medical bills and replaces a portion of your lost wages if: you are injured at work or have a work-related illness; and your employer has workers’ compensation insurance coverage under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, Title 5, Subtitle A, Labor Code.

The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) is a state agency that regulates the delivery of workers’ compensation benefits to injured employees and to eligible family members of employees killed on the job. The TDI-DWC also helps resolve disputes about claims and provides workplace safety and health services. The TDI-DWC does not pay benefits. Benefits are paid by workers’ compensation insurance companies, by employers certified by the TDI-DWC to self-insure, by groups of employers certified by TDI to self-insure, or by self-insured governmental entities.

The Office of Injured Employee Counsel (OIEC) is the state agency created to advocate for the injured employees of Texas. OIEC assists injured employees by: educating and providing general assistance to injured employees regarding the workers’ compensation system; providing an ombudsman once a dispute proceeding has been scheduled to assist the injured employee throughout the dispute process; referring injured employees complaints to the appropriate entities and licensing boards; and providing injured employee referrals to other local, state and federal agencies, including the Department of Assistive & Rehabilitative Services (DARS), as appropriate.

You may request assistance from the Office of Injured Employee Counsel by calling 1-866-EZE-OIEC (1-866-393-6432).
