What does a workers’ compensation appointment involve?

At Sunnylane Medical Clinic, a workers’ compensation appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your medical history. Afterward, your provider asks about your symptoms, including their severity, when they first occurred, and if any work-related activities make them worse.

If these measures don’t provide enough insight into your condition, your provider might also order diagnostic imaging like X-rays or laboratory tests. After pinpointing the source of your discomfort, your provider develops a custom workers’ compensation treatment program.
