When it comes to treating work injury pain, the most effective way to do so depends on the kind of injury you have. Treatment options also depend on how severe your injury is. For minor injuries, such as mild sprains, resting the affected area, putting ice or heat on it, taking nonprescription medications and limiting your activities are generally effective at easing pain at least temporarily. However, if you have pain that is severe or pain that is not responding to these types of treatment, there are other options to consider. Surgery might be recommended or required for serious injuries that are not healing properly, especially if these injuries affect your quality of life. If you have a more serious work injury, it is important to have it evaluated to determine how severe it is and how it should be treated. Getting a diagnosis and prompt treatment can help reduce the risk of developing complications or having your work injury get even worse.
