At CFOSM, our physicians and staff pride themselves on their expertise with work-related injuries covered under workers' compensation. We have 30+ years of experience with treating work-related injuries.
We know that early diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries are the keys to returning an injured worker to the job as soon as possible, thereby reducing both medical costs and time lost from work. We endeavor to provide excellent medical care to the injured worker, while at the same time keeping the employers and insurance carrier apprised of the patient's treatment plan, progress and status.
We believe in working closely with the patient, the employer and the carrier to develop appropriate work restrictions and light duty assignments. Our cost-containment strategies include injury specific conservative treatment options to appropriate utilization of ancillary services and testing procedures. We understand the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics, ergonomics and post-injury rehabilitation.
