Hi there, my name is Greg Beasley and I am Chiropractor in Everett,WA.
In this blog, I would like to review Chiropractic and L&I claims. An L&I claim can be opened if you injure yourself at your work place. Chiropractors can open an L&I claim for you if you have had a neck injury, back injury, shoulder injury or for other ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome. As the injured employee, you have one year from the date of injury to open a claim. Chiropractors can also help you re-open a claim that you have for low back pain or neck pain.
Most work injuries involve back pain or neck pain. Many on the job injuries are related to disc injuries. There have been multiple studies done in the past few years that have shown that treating with a chiropractor for a work injury will get you back to work faster than simple bed rest and pain killers. Chiropractors focus on movement as soon as possible and this not only helps you feel better, but it will also help you heal faster. Even better for most people is that early treatment and movement to a work injury can help prevent your muscles from becoming weak. This is very important because the weak muscles are one of the biggest reasons the injured worker cannot return back to work.
If you have been injured at work and need help filling out an L&I claim or if you already have a claim it would be my pleasure to assist you in your healing. L&I claims can be frustrating and I have years of experience helping patients with their claims.
