Part of The Federal Injury Center Network

Under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), medical expenses and benefits compensation are paid to injured workers and their survivors. The Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation is responsible for new Federal workers compensation claims and manages active cases. This program assists injured employees to help them go back to work when they get medical approval to work again.

Federal Workers Comp Doctor Training & Certification

If you are a federal employee injured at work, you may choose the health care provider you see for your treatment. You may work with a provider not referred by your agency as long as the provider is certified by the Department of Labor (DOL) to handle Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) cases.

Our Federal Injury Institute is a certified DOL provider that specializes in OWCP claims. We know the details about how to work with your DOL-OWCP injury claim, process the paperwork, and get you the treatment you deserve.

Any work-related injury that causes muscle, joint, or nerve pain is a good candidate for advanced chiropractic treatment from a Newport Beach chiropractor, so you get pain relief while you heal.

How Can A Newport Beach Medical Team Help You With Your Work Injury?

For work injuries, our Newport Beach doctors and staff begin treatment with diagnostic testing and a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment protocols. Not all injuries are the same and it's important for our medical staff to fully diagnose your injury. 

From our Medical Director, Dr. Neil Ghododra to our chiropractors, we provide you with a multidisciplinary medical team to effectively provide treatment. 

Medical treatments for Federal Worker’s Compensation Programs may include:

  • Pain Management: Pain relief is a top priority. Chronic pain management may go down when working with the root cause of the pain, with the goal of eliminating the pain.
  • Massage Therapy: Massage effectively stimulates circulation to improve nerve damage and reduce muscle pain.
  • Chiropractic Care: Our chiropractors work with patients to reduce pain stemming from the spine.
  • Physical Therapy: This therapy helps improve the range of motion, balance, and ability to stand and walk after an injury.
  • Decompression Therapy: Non-surgical spinal decompression comes from using a specialized device that offers motorized traction.
  • Advanced Strengthening Programs: These programs help regain lost functions by improving muscle tone and joint flexibility.

Why Choose A Federal Injury Institute for DOL and OWCP Care?

Our Federal Injury Institute believes in reducing pain with treatments that are more than adjustments and offer lasting solutions. By taking a careful and strategic approach, Newport Beach doctors review the whole patient, not just the injury.
