Worker’s Comp

We are pleased to be a part of

The Qualcare, Coventry and Horizon Casualty networks.

Treating the patient with a work related spine injury requires a unique set of clinical skills that take many years of experience to develop. The physicians at Comprehensive Spine Care have a combined experience of well over 40 years in treating occupational spine injuries in the acute, sub-acute, and chronic phase.

The administrative and clinical staff at Comprehensive Spine Care is extremely knowledgeable of and sensitive to the many issues that can potentially complicate the care of spine-injured workers. At Comprehensive Spine Care we believe that our collective clinical and administrative expertise, ease of communication, and our compassionate individualized approach to each case are key to our reputation and repeat referrals from Workers’ Compensation adjusters, case managers, and employers for over 20 years.

We take great pride in several aspects of our practice that have made us particularly suitable for treating patients with work-related spine injuries:
