Regardless of whether or not you have a dangerous, hazard, or life-threatening occupation, there are many ways that individuals can sustain injuries on the job. If, throughout the course of performing your duties in the workplace, you become injured or ill, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical bills, recovery and rehabilitation treatments, and lost wages. As a federal employee or government contractor, a job-related injury would most definitely qualify you for workers’ compensation from the government.
If you are a federal employee or government contractor who has been injured or fallen ill while on the job, you are eligible for financial compensation and medical coverage under The Department of Labor-Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (DOL-OWCP) as implemented by the Federal Employee Compensation Act (FECA). You are not, however, required to see the “company doctor” recommended by your agency because you have the right to choose which doctor you want to provide you with the care you need.

Accurate reporting of injuries is essential in federal workers’ compensation cases, so it is important that you entrust your medical care to a doctor who has the knowledge and experience in the medical field as well as working with workers’ compensation cases for the federal government.

If you are suffering from musculoskeletal pain, you may benefit from massage and muscular therapy tailored to meet your condition and needs. Our massage therapists’ techniques can increase blood circulation, reduce swelling, relax muscles, relieve muscle pain and spasm, and aid in recovery.
Decompression therapy is a type of motorized traction that can relieve back pain by gently stretching the spine. It changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal disks by creating negative pressure. In turn, the changes in the spine take pressure off of the spinal discs and create negative pressure in the disc (gel-like cushions between the bones of your spine). Bulging or herniated discs can then retract and nerves will have the pressure relieved so that there is better movement of water, oxygen, and other nutrient-rich fluids into the discs for quicker healing.
