General Guideline Principles for Summary of
Non-Acute Pain for workers compensation patients

The New York State workers compensation board has developed these guidelines to help physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals provide appropriate treatment for Summary of Non-Acute Pain.

These Workers Compensation Board guidelines are intended to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions regarding the appropriate level of care for their patients with ankle and foot disorders.

The guidelines are not a substitute for clinical judgement or professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care must be made by the patient in consultation with his or her healthcare provider.

Summary of Non-Acute Pain

Although physiological systems contribute to how we perceive pain, it’s crucial to acknowledge that psychological as well as variables also play a significant influence.

By being aware of these aspects, the doctor may be better able to comprehend and treat newly wounded patients, spot patients who are “at risk,” and direct patients to the right services. The appropriate course of action in each situation must be determined after a thorough patient assessment.

Therapy for non-acute pain can range from easy single modality techniques to extensive multidisciplinary care for the most difficult patients. It has been discovered that integrating therapeutic procedures including pharmacologic, interventional, psychological, and physical treatment has the most impact.

All treatments aim to restore function rather than just get rid of pain, and documenting functional improvement allows for evaluation of therapy effectiveness. Usually, as function rises, so does the sense of pain and the ability to regulate it. The aim of therapy is to provide medical care that enhances the patient’s quality of life.
