Work place injury

Foot and ankle injuries can be debilitating.   A fall off a ladder, object falling on your feet, or a crush injury can drastically change your life and end your career.   Quick proper care is important. 
Report such injuries to your HR or manager immediately and seek medical attention via urgent care center or ER immediately.    Testing such as xrays, CTs  or MRIs  should be done to find any acute injuries.    Acute meaning recently, as if you get the studies later it may be difficult to delineate what you really injured at work vs a chronic or previous condition.      After the initial evaluation your case worker will assign you to a specialist or clinic for continued care.  
At FFLC we take pride in getting injured workers back to work in a timely manner, with or without surgery.
