Our Philosophy

At SCSOC, we understand the special challenges that present with industrial injury and illnesses. We also understand that the earlier a diagnosis and treatment plans for musculoskeletal injuries can be put into place, the more likely the return of an injured worker to the job. This further reduces both medical costs and time lost from work. We endeavor to provide the most comprehensive and expert musculoskeletal medical care to the injured worker.

In addition, we strive to keep constant communication with employers, claims adjustors, and nursing case managers on the patient’s status, progress, and treatment plan.
