Re: Is a Doctor Held Liable if They Prescribe Physical Therapy and I Re-Injure Arm
if you do not wish to do the PT, don't do it but don't blame the doc when you do not regain use of your arm. PT is almost always painful. You are making your body do things it doesn't want to do.
What you need to do is discuss the extremely overwhelming and disabling pain since your PT session, to your PT therapist. They may reduce the agressiveness of the activities in order to work you up to the intended actions.
Was the unknown break within the elbow? If not, how do you believe it complicates the issue?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
