The orthopedic specialists at Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute pride themselves on their expertise with work-related injuries covered under worker's compensation benefits. We understand the special challenges presented by workplace injuries.
Our professional staff provides excellent medical care to the injured worker, and at the same time our worker's compensation coordinators keep the employers, case managers, and insurance companies apprised of the patient’s treatment plan, progress and status. They provide current work restrictions and office notes to the employers, case managers, and insurance adjusters within 24 hours of the patient being seen.
Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute takes a multi-disciplinary team approach to quality treatment and rehabilitation of work-related injuries. Included in our approach are preventative educational programs impacting back pain and cumulative trauma disorders in the work place, early intervention and treatment of work related injuries, assessment of functional capacities to assist the return to work process and facilitation of appropriate and timely outcomes. Ongoing communication with insurance adjusters and case managers is maintained to assist the decision making process for realistic and safe return to work. Our advanced medical facility was designed with our patients’ comfort and convenience in mind. Our on-site services include:
- Physical therapy & Occupational therapy services (including Certified Hand Therapists)
- Work hardening & conditioning
- Functional Capacity Evaluations
