Worker’s Compensation

At Pain Specialists of Charleston, we understand good health is good business.  

As part of our Worker’s Compensation programs, our care team will treat your employee or client from the injury onset to discharge.  Our board certified physicians provide excellent medical care to the injured worker and our dedicated WC Staff ensure that all parties – ranging from the patient, to employer, legal team and insurance carriers – are apprised of the patient’s treatment plan, progress and status.

We work closely with the patient, the employer and the carrier to develop appropriate work restrictions and light duty assignments if necessary. We understand the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics ergonomic and post-injury rehabilitation. Additionally, our physicians have received training in workers compensation procedures and guidelines to assure that our communications are clear and informative.
