Kill the bills! There are two bills pending in the Arizona legislature that would severely hurt injured in Arizona. House Bill 2367 would essentially prevent injured workers from choosing their own doctors when injured on the job. House bill 2365 would institute "evidence based medicine" which basically establishes treatment recommendations in accordance with a national guidelines. This essentially is another way for insurance carriers to direct medical care for the injured worker. Both of these bills are very bad for Arizona. Please call your legislators and tell them to vote "no" on both of these measures if they come to a vote http://www.fendonlaw.net/


Myofascial type injuries are soft tissue, i.e., muscular injuries. Believe it or not, myofascial injuries can mimic symptoms that are similar to intraspinal injuries, such as herniated discs and stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal). The most common forms of treatment for these injuries are trigger point injections and physical therapy. Very frequently these types of injuries are coupled with more serious structural type conditions, and the myofascial issues take a back seat to the structural issue. Thus, it's important to complain to your doctor(s) about all conditions that are bothering you, and make sure they are documented.

SS Tip of the Day - Did you know that even if you have a terminal illness, you go through the same disability process as every other applicant for Social Security Disability benefits? The only difference is that they supposedly monitor the case a little closer and try to expedite it. http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/ap... 


WC tip of the day - just because a person is injured on the job, does not mean that every health condition that needs to be treated prior to an industrial-related surgery is covered by the insurance carrier. The test is whether the health condition would have to be treated regardless of whether there was an industrial-related condition.
