Pain Management in the WorkComp Arena

Written by on 10/11/2017 3:06 AM in , , , , . It has 2 Comments.


Pain management in the workers comp arena can be particularly challenging. In combination with the glut of pre-existing conditions suffered by many Americans, the complexity of managing injuries within the system can be frustrating for all parties, leading to poorer outcomes for all. How can you thwart the common pitfalls of treatment?

Look at the System from the Eyes of Injured Workers
Attributing negative pain management outcomes to a worker’s desire for financial gain is overly simplistic. Viewing the process from ‘the other side’ and opening communication lines can go a long way toward showing you care about your injured workers’ needs and fostering a speedy recovery.

Do You Understand What Workers Comp Patients Go Through?

  • Delays in treatment despite severe pain are a known contributor to slow/poor recovery outcomes.
  • Accident investigations to determine liability/wrongdoing.
  • The constant need for approval/vetting of desired treatment protocols to gain relief/function.
  • Fear of job loss and financial insufficiency.
  • Reduction in the capacity to contribute at home and at work.
  • Loss of personal control and self-efficiency that can lead to hopelessness, depression, and ‘illness behavior.’
  • The need to constantly ‘prove’ pain, a subjective symptom, to show injuries as genuine for continued treatment.
  • Isolation from coworkers, friends, and family.

Set Injured Workers Up for Success
Go the distance, encouraging return-to-work by instituting light duty protocols or necessary equipment/environmental adaptations. Use this as the foundation for your caring support, boosting the social support system of injured workers, and putting them on the path to lifestyle and financial normalcy.

Pain management and productivity in the work environment can go hand-in-hand. Discover new ways to succeed with Minnesota Comp Advisor today.

    I really like how you mentioned the dangers of depression when confronting an injury. Suffering a serious injury without any prospect of healing can be pretty discouraging for anyone going through it. That's why it's important to make sure you manage your pain as soon as possible so you can have a speedy recovery. http://applevalleymedicaloffice.com/PAIN_MANAGEMENT
