Acupuncture is an excellent supplement/alternative treatment for many work comp cases.
- Referral - A referral is required from the Primary Care Physician for Work Comp cases.
- Number of Treatments -- Typically, referrals authorize 6 visits at a time. This is just an informal industry standard. In many situations, it seems that two sets of 6 treatments often gets the patient to a point of sustained benefit. Sometimes it happens after one set of 6 treatments and sometimes after 3 sets of 6 treatments. If sustained wellness is not achieved after 2 to 3 sets of 6 treatments, other methods of treatment should be sought to supplement or replace the attempt with Acupuncture.
