WORKERS’ COMPENSATION PAINCARE CASES

Interested in our Workers’ Compensation services? Contact our coordinator direct at (912) 580-4430.

Getting injured on the job is always a possibility, no matter the field or industry. At The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia, we specialize in helping injured workers recover from all kinds of painful conditions. In addition to comprehensive treatment plans, we also have an onsite workers’ compensation coordinator that closely manages cases and an on-site fully-licensed and accredited state-of-the-art outpatient treatment facility with access to imaging and physical therapy.

We also understand the workers’ compensation system has its own unique set of rules and guidelines. Our team of professionals at The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia work together to provide the highest quality of care while working within the State of Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation Guidelines.

We know your time is valuable and that time is money. We are committed to seeing injured workers within 24 hours of their injury to assess, treat and, when appropriate, help get them back to work quickly.

The employee, the employer and the bottom line are all at risk when chronic, persistent pain gets in the way of productivity and showing up to work. Finding a realistic solution to absenteeism and pain can start to get difficult when the employee is out of work for extended periods of time. The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia’s mission is helping employees return to pre-condition status as soon as possible through effective and compassionate care.

With the rise of the recent opioid epidemic, interventional pain treatments have grown in favor since they avoid the use of medications that can become potentially dangerous over time. We treat all chronic and persistent pain at its source.

THE PAIN MANAGEMENT CENTER UNDERSTANDS THE NEED FOR: 

  • Organized care from specialists and additional providers
  • Relay of related documentation in a timely manner, including status request forms and visit notes faxed within 24-hours of appointment
  • Clear and quick communication
  • Limited / no prescription of narcotics
  • Minimal lost time at work
  • Identification of malingering cases
  • Rapid return to pre-condition status
  • Expedited case closure
  • CLOSE MONITORING OF TOTAL CLAIM COST 

Efficient communication and reporting is critical to effective case management. The Spine Center of Southeast Georgia’s mission is communicating the patient’s treatment plan and their status with key stakeholders. We can either manage your entire case, or simply work with your treating physician to ensure you get the right courses of treatment for your condition. In the end, you will always dictate how involved we are in your case. 

Interventional pain management is the ideal solution to reducing an employee’s pain and getting them back to work as soon as possible.
