Workers Compensation

What are common work-related injuries?

A number of incidents occur on the job that can result in a debilitating foot or ankle injury and a claim for workers’ compensation. Some of the most common work-related injuries the team at Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants of New York treat happen because of:

  • Overuse
  • Slips and falls
  • Improper heavy lifting
  • Entrapment by machinery


As a result of these incidents, you can develop chronic pain and limited mobility due to foot and ankle fractures, ruptured tendons, and torn cartilage.

When should I seek treatment for workers’ compensation-related injuries?

Any time you’re in an accident on-the-job, you should seek a medical evaluation. Many injuries, including orthopaedic injuries, don’t always immediately cause symptoms.

For some, pain and other symptoms develop in the days following the accident. If you don’t receive proper early treatment, your condition can get worse and lead to long-term health problems.

If you suffer a serious injury at work like a foot fracture or experience severe pain due to the accident, you should schedule an orthopaedic evaluation at Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants of New York as soon as possible.

How are workers’ compensation-related injuries treated?

The medical team at Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants of New York are highly skilled in diagnosing and treating a variety of injuries to the spine and musculoskeletal system. They also have extensive experience in workers’ compensation-related cases to ensure that you have the necessary information to file your claim.

You can expect a full diagnostic evaluation to determine the severity of your condition. Your provider at Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants customizes a treatment plan that focuses on stabilizing your condition, easing your pain, and getting you back to work as soon as possible.

Your provider could recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications, injections, and physical therapy to restore the function of your foot and/or ankle. Dr. Chapman can also determine if you’ll need surgery to recover.

Based on how well and how quickly you heal, they can determine when it’s safe to return to work and your other activities. The Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants team also follows the guidelines for your workers’ compensation claim and can provide detailed reports about your injury and care.
