Blake Griffin sidelined against Milwaukee Bucks in playoffs and what can be learned about workers’ compensation from this bad news.

BasketballWe have several basketball fans in the office who have been debating the loss of Blake Griffin in the first round of the playoffs.

Yahoo Sports reports that he is suffering from a left knee strain preventing him from playing. He has been the catalyst for this team and it is a real shame for the Detroit Pistons.

The news about Blake Griffin missing playoff games started us thinking about our own clients with knee problems. Not everyone is a multi-million-dollar superstar who can afford to miss work. Blake also has incredible medical staff at his disposable and should make a quick recovery.

Activities such as twisting, rotating, kneeling, pivoting, squatting, lifting, or sudden stops and turns can result in knee injury. Diagnoses include knee strain, ligament tear, meniscus tear, kneecap dislocation, and cartilage problems. You don’t have to play basketball for the Detroit Pistons to have one of these problems.

Common treatments include resting, ice, compression, elevation, pain medication, injections, physical therapy, and arthroscopic surgery. Knee replacement might be recommended when cartilage is damaged beyond repair.

Workers’ compensation is supposed to pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment. Employees can choose their own doctor after 28 days. Many of our clients pick the same doctors that help professional athletes. Employees should not incur any co-pays or deductibles.
