A Health Plan Helping Workers get Back to Work
When a worker is injured on the job, your goal is to ensure that they are taken care of and are able to get back to work as soon as possible. But if they don’t properly treat their injury, a case of acute pain can sometimes escalate to a chronic pain issue, with no end to the pain in sight. An insured health plan can keep this from happening.
As experts in addiction-free pain management, Diablo Valley can help workers’ compensation chronic pain claimants more effectively manage their pain so that they are able to relieve their pain and return to work. Working closely with specialists that include a leading pain management clinic, we focus on treating chronic pain with non-addictive medications, reducing the chances of claimants becoming addicted to their pain medications.
We also have experience helping resolve difficult situations in which workers’ compensation claimants have become addicted to pain medications prescribed by other doctors. We help them break their addiction to opiates while finding non-addictive ways to control their pain. Non-addictive treatment options that we and our partners offer include interventional pain management procedures such as epidurals and joint injections and alternative therapies such as acupuncture and physical therapy.
