Workers’ Compensation Q&A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that employers have in case an employee is injured while performing their job duties. While there are some stipulations of when you can or can’t use workers’ compensation, like the fact that you can’t be intoxicated at the time of the incident to receive workers’ compensation, the program is there for your benefit.

If you qualify to get workers’ compensation, the program covers the costs of the medical care you need in order to recover as much as you possibly can. It also ensures you continue being paid if you’re injured or disabled on the job and cannot work for some time as you go through treatment and recover. 

Chiropractic care and other holistic services at Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville is covered through workers’ compensation. Dr. Young and the team can give you an initial examination to evaluate your injuries and figure out which treatments you might need to make a full recovery. 

What are some common workplace injuries?

Workplace injuries can happen in any occupation, whether your work involves physical labor or you work at a desk in front of a computer. Many jobs involve repetitive motions from day to day, from lifting objects repeatedly to typing for hours at a time. As a result, you can get overuse injuries or acute injuries that happen suddenly. 

Some common workplace injuries are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Back pain (especially the low back)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Repetitive use injuries

Some of these are mostly preventable when you practice proper body mechanics, but others are harder to avoid. 

What should I do if I need workers’ compensation?

As soon as a workplace injury happens, you should detail the injury in writing to your employer. You’ll need to visit a care provider like Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville for a professional evaluation, where Dr. Young and the team ask you for details about your symptoms and the circumstances of the injury.
