Months 4 to 12 months post injury

 

What is happening /  should be happening?

 

It is 4 months or more  after your injury and you have not  recovered fully  from your  workplace injury or illness. It is posible the symptoms are unchanged or even worsening.  By this stage it is probablethere have been complicaions or setback, or that the initial injury was more serious. 

By this stage many injured workers may be complaining of severe pain and restrictions, yet there may not be an obvious organic basis for the symptoms.  More comprehensive and expensive tests such as MRI;s, bone scans, and nerve conduction tests may still not have not been considered or approved. Psychological injures that may have occured as result of a major injury or trauma may be manifesting at this stage.  Secondary psychological injuries associated with enforced major lifestyle changes and restrictions may also be manifesting and compounding difficulties coping and responding to treatment and rehabilitation. Your  employer may have been harrassing you or the injury may have reoccured. There are so many reasons an injury can become complex so it is important these injuries are managed with expertise.
