Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you to get back to work quicker
Many prominent workers’ compensation payers are actively recommending behavioral therapy for claimants who suffer from chronic pain and psychological issues that are hindering their recovery. When properly administered, behavioral counseling can help you return to work sooner by assisting in the coping of emotional issues that are related to a work place injury.
The sooner that cognitive behavioral therapy is applied, the sooner it can help to avoid chronic pain problems. Our case managers will work with you to determine if behavioral therapy is right for you and whether it will be covered by the workers’ compensation claim.
