Industrial Medicine Q & A

What is industrial medicine?

Industrial medicine involves medical care and treatment for work-related injuries or diseases. The Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care team cares for workers’ compensation patients and fills out the paperwork required to get compensated for your care.

Industrial medicine also includes routine employee physicals, Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exams, drug testing, and vaccinations.

What is industrial medicine used for?

If you experience one or more of the following work-related injuries, you can benefit from industrial medicine:

  • Joint pain or injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Fractures
  • Back pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tendinitis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Burns
  • Other work-related injuries

The earlier you seek treatment for an on-the-job injury, the quicker you can recover and get back to work and a normal everyday routine.

How is my condition diagnosed?

To determine which work-related health problem you have, if any, your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history. 

They complete a comprehensive physical examination and may use blood tests or imaging procedures to diagnose an injury or disease.

Which treatment might I require?

Your personalized industrial medicine treatment plan depends on the type and severity of your medical problem. Your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care provider might recommend:

Wound and fracture care

If you have a burn, laceration, or fracture, your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care specialist can treat it. They clean wounds and use stitches, bandages, or casts to help a wound or fracture heal properly.


Certain medications can reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and accelerate the healing of injuries and infections. Oral medicines or inhalers may help relieve symptoms of a chronic disease or breathing problems.

Natural remedies

If you have a joint, muscle, tendon, or ligament injury, your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care provider may suggest natural treatments like massage, wearing a brace, chiropractic care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cell injections.

Minor surgical procedures

If you have a serious work-related injury requiring a surgical procedure, your doctor can refer you to a qualified specialist in your area.

Don’t live with a work-related injury and pain when simple treatments and workers’ compensation options are within reach. Schedule an appointment over the phone or online with Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care today.
