So often we have clients come to us after they have completed a course of unsuccessful treatment. Instead of allowing us to guide them with choices of a doctor to address their specific needs, they have instead either relied upon their HMO or general practitioner to direct them, many times with catastrophic results.
Medical specialists should be brought in as soon as reasonable and depending upon the pain and symptoms. While we would never pretend to be a doctor, we certainly have seen enough clients to know the pattern of pain and symptoms that would dictate the doctor they should see. As an example, recently a client had gone to several doctors for her pain in the low back and into her leg. She had undergone a number of treatments without success from the chiropractor, to the orthopedist.
It was not until she was referred to a specialist in pain diagnosis, that it was discovered that the pain was not emanating from her back but her piriformis muscle group. Her symptoms were actually coming from a place injured but not at all in her low back. Once injected in an in-office procedure, she had an amazing recovery. Had she been treated by less initiated doctors, the therapy and chiropractic regimen would have gone on indefinitely.
Diagnosis by the qualified professional is crucial to good care and will result in a better outcome for your case as more money from your settlement goes to you and not a host of inefficient doctors. Call us if you need advice or contact us online.
