Really need to vent here so sorry.
My back injury was a work related injury and I have had nothing but problems with the work comp people since the start of it 7 years ago.
I am currently fighting with workers comp to get me to the gym. When I finished PT 10 weeks ago the physio recommended I start a gym programme and wrote me a list of exercises. My surgeon and local Dr followed up with the same request but work comp has completely ignored it.
They want me to start back at a physio of their choice, one session a week ~X( ~X( they just cant seem to understand that this is what I have already been doing and I am past that! What I need is a treamill, recyling bike, some light weights and mats for the floor.
If I had the money i would pay for it myself but I cant even do that as I would be forforting my 'contract' with workers comp to do so.
Every time I talk to the case manager I end up in tears or am about to explode, yesterday I had to hang up on her or I was going to say something that I would regret later. This is not like me but they drive me to distraction and I am sure that is the plan. Then people will just give up.
Thing is my private health insurance will not cover me for my back as it is work related. SO I am stuck.
Dont they want me to improve???????
Thanks for listening, I really needed to get that off my chest.
