Improving Injury Recovery Time

By: Admin

Injury Recovery

Recovery; It’s more than just a word. Injury recovery is a steadfast goal for anyone injured while on the job. Those that have to fight to regain their ability to work can face a long and difficult road ahead of them. These circumstances are far from hopeless, however.

Once ensuring that you are receiving the health benefits that were promised to you by your employer, there are some key actions that you can take to keep your spirits up and ensure that you are back to work as very soon as possible.

  • Never delay your doctor’s visit. It is vital that you are accurately diagnosed and treated by a trained doctor and/or specialist as soon as possible. Self diagnosing or simply ignoring an injury can lead to life-threatening complications further down the road. Having documentation of your doctor’s visit is also absolutely necessary when pursuing workers compensation cases.
  • Stop the stress. Relaxing during this troubling time can yield very real benefits in your recovery. Stress has been shown to lead to increased pain sensations and slower recovery times. Take the time to take a breather while on the road to injury recovery.
  • Positivity is powerful. Though your initial outlook on an injury can be understandably negative, it is important to remember that your outlook on this setback could be a major factor in your recovery time. Research leads us to believe that there may be direct correlations with positivity during injury recovery and the quickness with which injured workers are able to get back to work.

The old adage of “mind over matter” often rings true in cases of injury recovery. If you have secured the benefits you may be owed by your employer, consider taking these tips to heart as you work on the goal of getting back to work.

Al Hilado has been such a blessing for me. I am so impressed by the staff and his assistant, Melody. I had lost all hope dealing with a workers’ comp claim. I thought I would never get the much needed medical care I needed. I turned to him for help and he came through for me. He is such a pleasure to deal with. If you want someone to be compassionate to your needs and will fight for your rights. Al Hilado is the man you want to represent you.

I hired Mr. Al Hilado early February 2015 to pursue helping me apply for Social Security Disability benefits when I became disabled and was unable to continue workng. He has been very personable and professional. He told me how long it could take for the process and provided detailed information on what to expect. He was always available to take my calls or answer my emails. He was very supportive every step of the way and 3 months later in May I was approved for my disability. Without his help I’m sure I would still be fighting for my benefits instead of receiving my disability checks. I highly recommend Alfred Hilado.
