About Pain Stop MD
As a fully-equipped medical clinic, we are able to diagnose and treat all work-related injuries. This includes injuries from traumatic accidents, as well as those resulting from overexertion and repetitive stress. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of a concussion, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or any other type of injury, we can help, and we will prescribe a custom-tailored treatment plan focused on the unique aspects of your injury, occupation, and overall health.
The first step on your road to recovery is to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Whether our board-certified physician can diagnosis your injury with a physical examination or some form of imaging (such as an x-ray, MRI or CT scan) is required, we will ensure that we have a comprehensive picture of your injury and its effects on your body so that we can treat you appropriately.
For patients who are capable of making a complete recovery and returning to work relatively soon, acute care may be all that is required. When acute care is appropriate, we focus on treating our patients’ work-related injuries as efficiently and noninvasively as possible.
Chronic Pain Management
Many workers experience chronic pain due to traumatic and overuse injuries. If your pain does not go away after treatment, we can use a variety of methods to manage your pain and help you gradually work toward living a pain-free life.
Whether to reduce inflammation, manage pain, or treat any other symptoms or effects of a work-related injury, medications can provide effective treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Our board-certified physician will assess your condition, review your medical history, and find the right prescription medication to treat your injury.
Physiotherapy, or physical therapy, can serve as an effective form of treatment, rehabilitation, or both. Depending upon the nature and extent of your injury, we may recommend physiotherapy at various stages of your recovery; and, when we do, we will structure a customized exercise regimen focused on helping you rebuild strength and stability in the area(s) affected by your injury.
When a more-invasive form of treatment is required, we work closely with our patients to help them understand their options and make an informed decision about surgery. If you determine that undergoing a surgical procedure is your best option, once your procedure is over, we will continue your other forms of treatment at Pain Stop MD until you are ready to return to work.
Workers’ Compensation Assistance
In addition to diagnosing and treating our patients’ injuries, we also help them apply for workers’ compensation. While workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system, many employees still struggle to collect the benefits to which they are entitled. From helping you complete the requisite forms to submitting detailed medical records and determining when it is safe for you to resume your job duties, we will be by your side until you receive the benefits you deserve.
At Pain Stop MD, we treat postal workers, construction workers, office workers, emergency workers, prison employees, TSA employees, registered nurses, forest services employees, compliance officers, and other employees who have suffered overuse injuries and been injured in accidents including:
- Auto accidents
- Burns and electrocutions
- Construction site accidents
- Equipment and machinery accidents
- Falls from height (including falls from ladders and scaffolding)
- Hand tool and power tool accidents
- Lifting accidents
- Slips and trips
- All other work-related accidents

FAQs: Treatment for Work-Related Traumatic and Overuse Injuries[otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: How do you decide which medications to prescribe?” opened=”closed”] Before prescribing any medications to our patients, we conduct a comprehensive health assessment and review the patient’s current medications to determine what risk factors and potential negative interactions are present (if any). We combine this information with the results of our diagnosis and evaluation of alternative treatment options to determine the most-appropriate medications based upon each patient’s individual circumstances.
[/otw_shortcode_content_toggle] [otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: What types of work-related injuries typically require surgery?” opened=”closed”] Various types of work-related injuries can require surgery. Typically, it is not only the nature and location of the injury that determines whether surgery is necessary, but also the extent of the damage sustained. For example, while minor tears may be able to heal on their own, a complete tear of a muscle, ligament, or tendon will often require surgical treatment. Likewise, while some bone fractures can heal with a cast, severe breaks may require screws, pins, rods, or other medical devices to help them set appropriately.
[/otw_shortcode_content_toggle] [otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: When is it safe to begin physiotherapy?” opened=”closed”] When should you begin physiotherapy? This is an important question, and one that does not have a simple answer. Each patient’s situation is unique; and, before we recommend physiotherapy, we will carefully assess the current state of your injury. For some patients, the recovery process can begin immediately. For others, surgery, rest, and other intermediate measures may be required.
[/otw_shortcode_content_toggle] [otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: How soon will I be able to return to work?” opened=”closed”] Once again, it depends. While we understand that you want to get back to work as quickly as possible, we also know the risks involved in returning to work too soon. We want to give you the best chance to live a healthy and pain-free life; and, if this means taking more time off from work to focus on your recovery, we can help you file for the workers’ compensation benefits you need to cover your expenses.
