Most work related injuries are traumatically created muscle strain injuries that respond very well to our hands-on, drug-free approach. You do not need a medical doctor's referral in order to receive chiropractic care under your workers' compensation benefits. Under Oregon law, your chiropractor can serve as your attending physician for 60 days or 18 treatments, which is usually sufficient time to fully resolve your injury. Your chiropractor can also authorize time loss and work duty modifications. After 60 days, a medical doctor can still refer you back to your chiropractor if you need additional care. Dr. Wright has over 20 years of clinical experience and has treated thousands of work related, auto related, or sports related traumatic injuries. We have treated cases ranging from slip and fall incidents, field worker exertion injuries, computer related ergonomic injuries, and almost everything in between.
SpineCare Chiropractic uses scientifically based modalities such as therapeutic massage, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, traditional chiropractic manipulation, and home exercise programs to resolve your work related injury and return you to your normal activities as soon as possible. We understand that you can't wait for care, and we will do everything possible to get you in to see the doctor within no more than 24 hours after you call us. We can appreciate that you don't want to just cover up your pain with prescription medications, and we want to treat the source of your pain rather than try to treat the pain itself. This is the basis of our many clinical successes.
If you have questions about chiropractic care for workers' compensation injuries, or are not sure if chiropractic treatment can help you, please call our office. Dr. Wright would be happy to speak to you and answer any questions you may have.
