How will I afford to provide for my family if I’m not healthy enough to work?
How will I afford to pay my medical bills?
Will I be able to play catch with my kids?
Will I ever be healthy enough to work again?
Is this pain going to last forever?
Injuries can happen to any worker in any occupation.

Common Occupations for Injury
From small bumps and bruises to fatal and life-altering incidents, no occupation is completely safe from workplace injuries. At Pain Stop MD, we’re well equipped to handle any and every work-related injury for any occupation. Some occupations, however, are more inclined to sustain injuries. Generally, these occupations are more physical in nature. Here is a list of some of the more common occupations that sustain injuries:
- Construction workers
- Emergency Workers
- TSA employees
- Prison and jail workers
Due to the physically demanding nature of these jobs, and their occasionally hazardous work environments, the above occupations are more likely to get injured on the job, whether from overuse or from isolated traumatic incidents. Other occupations do routinely sustain injuries, though, and should not be discounted strictly because they happen are injured less frequently. Our OWCP doctors serve the following workers in the Dallas area:
- Construction workers
- Clerks and office workers
- Emergency workers
- Prison and jail workers
- TSA employees
- Registered nurses
- Forest service employees
- Compliance officers
The most important thing to remember if you’ve been involved in a workplace injury, regardless of your occupation, is to seek immediate medical attention. Whether you’re a construction worker who’s fallen off of high scaffolding, a forest service worker who’s been attacked by wildlife, or a secretary who’s developed carpal tunnel syndrome over the years, we can tailor our treatment to suit your needs.
Our Services for Injured Workers
We offer a full range of medical services for workers who’ve been injured while on the job. Our board-certified OWCP physician and staff can tailor a treatment regimen to suit your needs and get you back on your feet. Our treatments for injured workers include the following:
- Diagnostic testing. Always the most important step in the treatment process, diagnosis allows us to pinpoint the cause of your injury and pain. By doing so, we’re able to create a proper treatment plan to help you heal efficiently. Without a proper diagnosis, some injuries never heal and may exacerbate other regions of the body’s health as well.
- Acute care. In cases where you’ve been injured in an isolated traumatic incident, it’s possible that the best treatment plan is acute care. Especially effective if those injured seek medical attention immediately, acute care includes short-term, immediate care in a concentrated amount of time to get you back to good health.
- Chronic pain program. Some injuries may develop over a long period of time and may require a longer period of time to properly heal. Our clinic can provide excellent long-term, chronic pain programs to help you deal with your health problems. Generally, chronic pain program treatment is effective for health issues due to overuse and repetitive motion.
- Prescriptions. The benefit of having a board-certified physician on staff is the ability to prescribe medication that can be of particular use to work-related injury patients. Our doctor will prescribe the right medication and dosage for the right amount of time to help you heal effectively.
- Physiotherapy. Progressively reintroducing the muscles, bones, and joints to physical activity through physiotherapy can be especially effective in treating work-related injuries. By helping certain regions heal, and strengthening them in the process, physiotherapy can be the difference between remaining healthy and re-injury.
- Surgery. In some cases, work injuries may require surgical attention to properly heal. Our clinic has the resources and knowledge to give you the surgical treatment you need for your work-related injury.
Don’t hesitate to book a consultation today to figure out what treatment plan, or combination of treatments, would work best for you. We’re positive that, with our help, you can overcome your injury in a timely and stress-free manner.
Workers’ Compensation After Injuries
In some cases, depending on the context of your work-related injury, you may be entitled to compensation to make up for financial losses, medical bills, and time taken out of your life to recover. Our clinic has the resources to properly guide you through the workers’ compensation process and get you the compensation that you deserve.
We can provide the following to help you with your workers’ compensation claim:
