Conditions We Treat

Each year more than 3 million nonfatal occupational illnesses and injuries are reported by private industry in the United States. These injuries and illnesses, as well as those that go unreported, can be caused by job-related physical activities, accidents, exposure to toxins or allergens in the workplace, and stress.

The Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health specialize in treating injuries and illnesses that have occurred as a result of or are made worse by an exposure or event in the workplace. To determine the most effective path toward recovery and help prevent future injury, we examine the nature of the injury or illness, the sources responsible, and the event or exposure itself.
