A workplace injury can prevent you from earning wages and impacts your safety on the job. We can support a safe return to work and minimize the disruptive impact of an injury. If you are in law enforcement, civil service, or a Tricare/VA beneficiary, we can help in your reassignment to active duty.
We are also proud to partner with Heywood Occupational Health as their preferred provider of surgical services in the care of injured workers in our community.

We focus on injuries to the musculoskeletal system, and are allied with outstanding physical therapy, occupational therapy and other specialty providers for continuity of care.
