New York State Medical Treatment Guidelines for Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome in workers compensation patients

The guidelines established by the New York State Workers Compensation Board are designed to assist physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals in delivering suitable treatment for an Overview of Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

These guidelines aim to help healthcare professionals make informed decisions about the appropriate level of care for patients experiencing ankle and foot disorders within the context of workers’ compensation.

It’s crucial to note that these guidelines do not replace the valuable insights gained from clinical judgment and professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care should be a collaborative one between the patient and their healthcare provider.
