“I’m doing a lot better now and I don’t have the severe pain that I had when I first came here. Everything is working good now. I got a lot of help with my paperwork and all the forms.”
“Late Feb 22 I tore my hamstring at work. Was told to rest it. Was told it was just a sprain. M.R.I. ordered by you guys showed it was torn. The surgeon you sent me to said surgery was not necessary. Rehab would be sufficient. Very skeptical. Dr. Evans has gotten me much stronger and more agile. Good guy. Thought for sure I needed surgery rehab from Haley and Evan has been great. Performance results are off the charts, compared to when I first arrived. Yes, adjustments feel great back feels much better. Go for sure everyone in this place is awesome. Thank you guys so much. “
“I had an injury to my thumb that had caused extremely severe pain and incredibly huge swelling. Before I came here, I was quite disabled – to the point where I could not even tie my shoes or even button my pants. Now I can do those tasks, and have regained the ability to eat with my right hand, hold a cup, etc. I am so happy to be able to WRITE again with my hand. Even things like being able to clip my own fingernails again really make me feel great again!”

Experts in Treating DOL-OWCP Injury Claims
We heard a common nationwide theme that people just couldn’t find a doctor who understood OWCP workers’ compensation. Instead of seeing the proper OWCP doctor, patients were going to their family physicians or chiropractors and using their own personal health insurance, paying expensive copays, deductibles, and coinsurances, plus, having their treatment cut off by their private insurance carriers. They were having to use their sick and vacation time for the time off due to their injury and weren’t able to become eligible for a scheduled award compensation. They were losing all of their earned benefits due to not having doctors who accepted and understood OWCP workers comp.
Whether you are a federal prison worker or are part of homeland security, If you’ve been injured working for the federal government, then you have the right to choose your doctor. Choose a doctor that is experienced in handling DOL-OWCP injury claims and provides comprehensive care for your federal workers’ compensation injury. Get the benefits you deserve.
DOL Doctors Must Be Experts
DOL workers’ comp injuries under FECA must be documented correctly. This is the most important part of getting your OWCP work injury claim accepted so you start receiving the treatment you need to get better.
At Peak Performance Health Care, we are trained to connect your injury and symptoms to your injury on the job. This is called “causation”. An inability to do so will cause your injury claim to be denied and remove your chances of getting the treatment you need to get back to work and avoid pain and re-injury.
At Peak Performance Health Care, our focus is to:
- Clearly and accurately link your injury to your federal job (causation)
- Make sure your DOL forms are handled correctly
- Get your CA1 or CA2 injury claims accepted
- Help you with Continuation of Pay (COP)
- Help you with your Claim for Compensation (CA7)
- Correctly fill out your CA17 Duty Status Reports
- Help with your Schedule Award Impairment Ratings
- Get you all the treatment you need so you can get back to work
