If you have tried the home
treatment suggestions but your pain and discomfort have lasted for several days
(for example, 7 continuous days), call your doctor. Health professionals who
can diagnose and treat work-related injuries include:
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), for
information on treating and preventing injury.
National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH), a
division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). NIOSH is the
federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations
for the prevention of work-related disease and injury.
