If you have been told you can no longer visit a chiropractor due to the Medical Treatment Guidelines, even though you are still suffering pain and other symptoms from your workplace injury, Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria can help. Workplace accidents commonly lead to back and neck injuries. Such injuries often require the ongoing care of a chiropractor. While the ongoing care of a chiropractor may be essential to fully recovering from your injury, the Medical Treatment Guidelines issued by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board may limit your number of visits. Lipsitz Green’s Workers’ Compensation attorneys are experienced in successfully fighting Medical Treatment Guideline limits so clients can get the extended care they need to recover from their injury.
Submitting requests for the chiropractic treatment you need
In New York State, workers’ compensation Medical Treatment Guidelines are the standard of care for treating injured workers. If your health is deteriorating because of the symptoms of workplace injuries, you may need to participate in the state’s ongoing care maintenance program and visit a chiropractor to improve your condition. Once you have been assessed a permanent disability, you are permitted up to 10 "maintenance" chiropractic visits per year. You may still be eligible for additional chiropractic care for exacerbation treatment.
