Work-Related SI Joint Dysfunction Treatment Options

Treatment for work-related SI joint dysfunction is designed to return the worker to work.  Acetaminophen can be used to treat the pain, but it will not control the inflammation.  Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen and naproxen, are commonly used to treat the pain and inflammation.

Damages after serious injury can range widely

Wisconsin residents who were involved in a car accident in the past, or who have friends or family members who were involved in past incidents, know that damages from crashes can be far reaching. Often, individuals think only of the immediate damages to property. Though spending time at the body shop isn't something anyone wants to do, serious injuries resulting from accidents can lead to even less desirable damages.

Work-Related SI Joint Dysfunction Symptoms, Diagnosis, Causation

Work-related SI joint symptoms are low back and buttock pain.  The pain can radiate down the leg and may be confused with a herniated disc in the lumbar spine. People often feel muscle spasm in one or both of their buttocks muscles.  Problems with the SI joint may make sitting difficult.  The SI joint dysfunction diagnosis is often made only after a disc herniation is ruled out.

Who can bring a wrongful death suit in Wisconsin?

A wrongful death suit occurs when someone is killed in an accident or incident that might be the fault of another party. Surviving family members or certain personal representatives for the deceased or loved ones may bring the claim, and there are some restrictions on how monies won in such a lawsuit should be divided among surviving children and others.

SI Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac or SI joint dysfunction is a term that is used to describe a painful low back condition.  For many injured workers in Wisconsin McCormick Law Office attorneys determine if SI joint dysfunction is a work-related condition - if the condition is caused by a work accident or job duties over time.  

First steps after a motorcycle accident

Even a minor motorcycle accident can leave a rider feeling shaky, and when injuries are involved, the situation can feel even more overwhelming. It's normal to be uncertain what to do next or who to talk to. The most important thing after any motorcycle accident is to immediately call the police and ensure any injuries are assessed and treated by a doctor. Also make sure to not admit any fault.

Mechanical or Neurogenic Back Pain

Work injuries can result in mechanical or neurogenic back pain.  McCormick Law Office workers compensation attorneys get the best results by reviewing records to determine the type of low back pain a worker experienced.  It makes a stronger worker's compensation claim if the nature of the injury is consistent  with a worker's job duties and the work accident.

Claim denied for Pre-existing Condition or Degenerative Disease

Worker's compensation claim denied due to pre-existing condition and they never had a problem like this before.  The old pre-existing condition, and its cousin the catch-all degenerative disease, are the go to reasons insurance adjusters use to deny injured workers' claims.  Once in awhile these defenses have some merit, but mostly they are used unfairly by independent medical examiners, IME doctors, to deny legitimate claims.

Back injury and other injuries occur in a range of jobs

Many jobs require employees to handle dangerous situations with care and skill. Even in jobs that don't normally expose workers to what might be considered unsafe conditions, accidents do happen. In any situation, it's important that a worker injured while doing his or her job not be intimidated by the workers' compensation process. Immediately after an accident, report the situation to your superior and obtain emergency medical treatment if needed. Company policies are usually in place to handle reporting employee accidents.
