Frequently Asked Questions

What does a physiatrist do?

A physiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the muscles, bones, tendons, and nervous system. These problems can be caused by injuries or diseases such as arthritis, cancer, stroke, or spinal cord injury. 

Physiatrists work with a team of other health care providers, such as orthopedists, neurologists, and physical therapists, to provide comprehensive care for their patients.

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that covers medical costs and wages for employees who get injured at work. Not all health providers care for workers’ compensation patients. 

When you or your employee gets injured at work, you may not be able to get medical care from your primary care provider. Depending on your injury, you may need specialized care to manage your condition.

Are there doctors who accept workers’ compensation near me?

Yes! Southern Pain and Spine is a pain management practice that provides comprehensive care for injured workers, and we proudly accept workers’ compensation. If you’re unsure how to proceed with your workers’ compensation claim, our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help.
