The guidelines established by the New York State workers’ compensation board are designed to assist physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals in providing appropriate treatment involving Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), Bupropion, or Trazodone for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).
These Workers Compensation Board guidelines aim to help healthcare professionals make informed decisions about the appropriate level of care for patients with ankle and foot disorders.
It’s important to note that these guidelines do not replace clinical judgment or professional experience. The ultimate decision about care should be a collaborative effort between the patient and their healthcare provider.
