Thousands of employee hours are lost every year due to workplace injuries. Electro-Acupuncture and soft tissue work are some of the best tools to get patients back to work much sooner  through increasing range of motion and decreasing pain. Another extremely important aspect of treating work-related injuries is the ability to write an injury and treatment plan report for  justification of continued care of the patient. In this webinar, you will  learn how to write a report to present to the Worker’s Compensation insurance company, employer, and/or referring physician so you can explain why the patient requires treatment with Acupuncture for their work-related injury.
