My Work Injury Requires Physical Therapy: Will It Be Covered?
Have you experienced an injury that requires rehabilitation? Do you have pain or limited mobility that is sustained despite initial treatment? You may find yourself in need of physical therapy in such a circumstance – but, as you know, physical therapy does not come cheap. You may be eligible for physical therapy to be covered by Florida worker’s compensation in some circumstances.
If you have sustained a work injury with symptoms that are lingering and hindering your ability to do your job, do not panic – and do not quit your job either. There is help out there. The Hoffman Firm has a highly successful professional legal team ready to help at a moment’s notice, spearheaded by Evan A. Hoffman, Worker’s Compensation Attorney Fort Lauderdale. Evan Hoffman can help you figure out your options and determine the best course of action.
As delineated on workerscompensation.com, you may need physical therapy if you have sustained a musculoskeletal injury that is keeping you from getting back to work. If you have been seeing an orthopedic doctor, then he or she may recommend that you participate in a physical therapy program. This will help you restore function and mobility to the point you were able to before you sustained the injury, and will also help you to keep pain under control, in addition to preventing permanent physical disability.
Your orthopedic doctor will prescribe the amount of physical therapy that you should have in order to get better. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be the case that an orthopedic doctor will prescribe the same amount of physical therapy for every worker. This means that you may not have enough physical therapy. If this is the case, and you still need support or rehabilitation for your injury through physical therapy, there is still hope.
What you should not do is assume your injury will get better on its own. This could be a serious mistake that might leave you with permanent pain or physical mobility problems, which is why the help of a highly qualified attorney is invaluable for your case. Whether or not you believe it, physical therapy is actually a highly critical part of recovery for many people.
You have no need to be nervous or intimidated. If you need treatment, you should seek it out.
