Pain Management, Injury Recovery, Physical Therapy, and Chiropractic Care
Injuries at the work place are very common and may be debilitating. Workplace injuries often occur because of high-risk jobs, lack of or scarcity in safety devices, lack of training, higher numbers of manual workers and repetitive stress.
Repetitive stress injuries are the most common types of work-related injuries with several risk factors, including repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertions of the hands and prolonged awkward postures.
Occupational injuries can be categorized in many ways such as injuries by nature of the job, injuries related to various organs, and injuries based on severity. Injuries at the work place may affect any part of the body and at times at multiple locations. Most often, disorders affect the soft tissues of the neck, shoulder, elbow, hand, wrist, and fingers and develop gradually. Conditions that can result from work-related musculoskeletal injuries to the lower extremities include tendonitis, bursitis, torn meniscus, damaged cartilage and stress fractures. Led by our physicians, our medical team will work with you to prevent, diagnose and treat work-related injuries and conditions.
Auto Accident Related Injuries
While whiplash is a common injury from auto accidents, another common complaint of crash victims is that they don’t “feel like their normal selves”. They may also experience other symptoms like dizziness, blurred vision, headaches, back pain, muscle stiffness or spasms, neck pain, numbness and tingling in their arms or legs, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, irritability, memory loss and difficulty concentrating.
The reason people choose physical therapy treatment for injuries sustained in auto accidents is simple – therapy is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with accidents in these events are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it is only natural that physical therapy is the treatment of choice.
14 Day Statute
The Statute of Limitations states an individual has the right to seek treatment within the first 14 days of the date of the accident.
Any individual that seeks treatment past the 14 days will have waived any and all rights to medical treatment.
Pre and Post Surgical
Pre and Post-Surgical Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Our Pre-Surgical Orthopedic Rehabilitation program will prepare our patients prior to undergoing an orthopedic surgery to improve the healing time frame post surgery. The Post-Operative Orthopedic Rehabilitation program will consist of communicating with the surgeon regarding the type of surgery performed and discussing the preferred rehabilitation protocol to implement patient education for the overall rehabilitation.

Multi Care Medical employs a qualified staff to assess the extent of your injury and prescribe the best course of action.
Fractures, sprains and strains are typical if you live an active lifestyle, and depending on the severity, may be extremely painful. To determine the best course of treatment for your pain, it’s important to know which type of injury you have sustained.
There are a variety of treatment options available for fractures, sprains and strains, but first and foremost, rest and immobilization are essential. Keeping the injury still is the key to healing. Also, icing the injury helps prevent swelling. Common over-the-counter medications, such as Advil, can ease the pain and inflammation.
For a fracture (broken bone), a cast often is used to prevent movement, allowing the bone to heal over time. Sprains and strains, however, involve the ligaments, which may be partially or completely torn. Ligament injuries often need to be rehabilitated, and this is accomplished through partial movement. Multi Care Medical employs a qualified staff to assess the extent of your injury and prescribe the best course of action.
