Occupational Medicine helps you get your life back.

One day you’re leading a happy and productive life and, the next, you’re nursing an injury that not only prevents you from earning a living, but limits your personal life, too. To get you back on track, physically and mentally, we offer occupational medicine.

The team here at Commonwealth Pain & Spine understands the frustration that comes with a sidelining injury, and our goal is to help you heal safely. Through occupational medicine, we tailor a program to your unique needs so you can continue to lead a productive life.

Here’s a look at a few of the many benefits of our occupational medicine services.

Back to work

Since injuries vary widely and dictate your needs to a great extent, the program works slightly differently for everybody. To give you an idea, however, let’s take a look at one of the more common problems — back pain.

If you’ve injured your back on the job, our team comes together to provide you with relief from the pain, while also building the foundation you need to overcome your injury and prevent it from recurring down the road.

Through pain management, we address your symptoms, then our physical therapists take over to help you strengthen your back through targeted exercises. These exercises not only strengthen the supporting tissues in your back, they also help you maintain optimal flexibility and range of motion.

While our goal is to help you heal in a broad sense, we also take a close look at the demands of your job and tailor a physical therapy program that addresses your individual needs.

A coordinated effort

Another key advantage of our occupational medicine services is that your team works closely with everyone involved, including:

We understand the bureaucratic ins and outs, and we’re here to help clear a path through the red tape so you can concentrate on getting better.

We also coordinate our efforts in house, providing you with the resources you need to manage your discomfort and lay the groundwork for future good health. In other words, we don’t take shortcuts when it comes to getting you back to work, but, rather, the path that will set you up for a future of injury-free productivity.

If you’ve been injured on the job and you’re looking to get your life back, contact one of our 15 locations in St. Matthews, Elizabethtown, Lexington, Crestview Hills, Owensboro, London, Carrollton and Pikeville, Kentucky; Evansville, Vincennes, New Albany,  and Jasper, Indiana; and Mt. Carmel, Illinois, to learn more about our occupational medicine.
