“Association Between the Type of First Healthcare Provider and the Duration of Financial Compensation for Occupational Back Pain.
Blanchette MA, et al. J Occup Rehabil. 2016.
Conclusion : The type of healthcare provider first visited for back pain is a determinant of the duration of financial compensation during the first 5 months. Chiropractic patients experience the shortest duration of compensation and physiotherapy patients experience the longest. These differences raise concerns regarding the use of physiotherapists as gatekeepers for the worker’s compensation system. Further investigation is required to understand the between-provider differences.”
