Workers Comp Pain FAQs

If you are insured in Oregon you do not need a referral to see an acupuncturist, chiropractic physician, or naturopathic doctor for treatment of your workers comp pain. Massage is also a covered treatment option when medically necessary, however you will need a referral for this type of care. We are able to provide access to all of these services. If you have already seen a practitioner for care of your workers comp claim, then you will need a referral to our clinic.

Typically, your Workers Compensation pays for all medically necessary examinations, imaging, physical and prescription medicines, surgery, therapeutic devices, and rehabilitation. Keep in mind, there is a maximum allowable amount which may differ from workplace to workplace.

Almost always, the answer is yes. In rare cases we may need to send you for imaging before a chiropractic adjustment or naturopathic manipulation, however we have many modalities which can be applied quickly and effectively on the same day as your examination. It is important to note that we will need the workers compensation claim form filled out that will be provided to you in our office.

We collect a great deal of information at your initial visit. We will need your insurance policy, a detailed account of the workers compensation accident, and any current treatment or medications for this injury. This is to help set up your medical claim and give us the necessary details to create the best treatment plan. If you are not able to transport yourself, we recommend you bring someone to drive.

Depending on the number of service providers you elect to see, your first treatment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half, or even more. Often we will start your examination with one provider and triage your care to the type of medical treatment which best meets your injury description. For example, soft tissue and internal injuries may be better suited for acupuncture and massage treatment, while structural issues or prescription medications would begin with the chiropractor or naturopath.

It is always our goal to achieve the maximum treatment benefit with the best and most well suited provider and service type for your medical needs. Regardless, your first visit will likely be longer than most as we will perform a thorough examination and intake in order to establish a baseline for measuring future progress.

There’s a form for that.
