The State of New Jersey requires all employers to have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Priyanka Pandya is a licensed physical therapist in New Jersey who provides specialized care for a wide range of injuries that occur in the workplace. Some of the most common injuries she treats include:
Overexertion is the leading cause of workplace injuries. These injuries involve damage to your muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments and occur during activities like pulling, pushing, or carrying heavy objects.
Slipping and tripping is the second-most common cause of injuries at work. These injuries include falls that occur on wet, slippery floors or trips over an object on the floor.
These injuries result from falling from a height, such as a roof or ladder, and reaction injuries that occur when you slip or trip without actually falling. The way your body reacts to a trip or slip may cause muscle strain and other body injuries even if you don’t fall to the ground.
If your job requires you to drive, you’re at risk of a motor vehicle accident. Common car accident injuries include whiplash and concussions.
If you’ve been injured at work and filed a workers’ comp claim, your primary care provider may refer you to Reboot Physical Therapy for treatment. Physical therapy is a safe, effective, and easily customizable treatment for many work-related injuries.
Priyanka carefully evaluates your condition and develops an individualized treatment plan to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible. She works closely with your primary physician to ensure you receive appropriate care. She also helps your provider determine when it’s safe for you to return to work.
