TAMING THE PAIN BEAST  Moving away from pain – not necessarily “curing it”
New Science has allowed more options for our clients than ever before. What are the benefits and drawbacks of employing the latest in treatment practices? What are the challenges?  Employer, industry standards, client, and individual proclivities may impact our ability to focus on the Injured Worker and ensure they are returned to functional, working life. How do we improve the way we educate workers’ comp professionals, the injured workers, employers, and adjusters?  What about controversial treatments such as medical marijuana, opioids, and Botox?  Are we keeping up? How can we learn from each other? Other industries? What makes sense?  We hope you will help answer some of these questions and more.

Medical Breakthroughs in Treatment and Technology have allowed more options to medical patients and options for our clients than ever before.  What are the benefits and drawbacks of parties employing the latest in treatment practices?  What are the challenges?  How do we improve the way we educate ourselves, the injured workers, employers, and adjusters? What about controversial treatments such as medical marijuana, opioids, and botox?  Employer, industry standards, client, and individual proclivities may impact our ability to focus on the Injured Worker and ensure they are returned to functional, working life.  Are we keeping up?
