How does my provider diagnose work or personal injuries?

To find out which type of injury you have, the Chicago Surgical Clinic team discusses your medical history and asks about symptoms you may have. They evaluate injured or painful areas of your body and might order blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, or other imaging tests. 

What are common treatments for work and personal injuries?

Your injury treatment plan depends on the severity and type of injury you have. Chicago Surgical Clinic specialists might recommend:

Watchful waiting

If you have a minor injury that may heal on its own, Chicago Surgical Clinic providers may suggest watching and waiting. 

Home remedies

Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) treatment at home is sometimes all that’s needed to help a work or personal injury heal. Wearing a brace, splint, or cast can help too. 


Taking over-the-counter or prescription medicines can reduce pain and inflammation, or reduce the risk of infection, while an injury heals. 


Regenerative medicine, cortisone, or other types of injections can relieve injury-related discomfort and speed up healing. 

Physical therapy

Physical therapy stretches and exercises can speed up healing, boost strength and flexibility, and reduce the risk of re-injury after a personal or work-related injury.


If you have a severe injury, your Chicago Surgical Clinic specialist might recommend surgery to repair tissues and restore musculoskeletal structure and function.
