What Is Occupational Medicine?
For those who don't know, occupational medicine is a type of medical care that focuses on treating and healing work-related illnesses, injuries, and other conditions. Because these injuries and conditions are more apt to occur in the workplace, occupational medicine physicians have more specialized training than primary care providers, so they can better meet the needs of their patients. For example, occupational medicine physicians are required to stay up to date on state and national regulations and laws, such as ones set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and others. In addition, occupational medicine providers often work closely with employers to ensure businesses continue running smoothly and that injured employees return to work healthy and injury-free.
The South Coast Family Medical Center Approach to Occupational Medicine
When it comes to occupational medicine, our team of providers focuses on treating both the physical and emotional symptoms. It's a comprehensive approach that works well and puts the emphasis on treating the whole patient.
