Alternative Medicine

What is alternative medicine?

The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand is passionate about protecting the rights of injured workers to obtain health care of their choice, and the attorneys at the firm actively support alternative medicine. While conventional medicine includes drugs, surgeries and a variety of other therapeutic techniques that are commonly recognized by medical and legal authorities, alternative medicine is just starting to gain legal recognition in the United States.

Alternative medicine emphasizes gentle therapeutic techniques such as massage, acupuncture and biofeedback to heal the body through natural, noninvasive means.

Some alternative treatments have been made available to injury victims, but workers' compensation will only cover patients under the right circumstances. For example, even though many kinds of treatments are allowed under law, only health care professionals who have been authorized by the Chair of the Workers' Compensation Board may treat claimants.

Consult an Oakland Personal Injury Attorney

If you are interested in pursuing alternative medicine and treatments after you have suffered a serious accident, it is wise to enlist the help of an Oakland lawyer who is familiar with the approval process involved. Since alternative medicine is relatively new to the American public, many workers' comp laws do not directly address this option for medical treatment.

If you are interested in a certain treatment for therapy, an attorney at the firm will make a request for authorization to the insurance carrier. If your request is denied, your attorney can argue your case before a Law Judge.

With six decades of combined legal experience, the lawyers at The Law Firm of Jonathan M. Brand have proven their ability to provide knowledgeable and effective legal representation for injury victims. The firm strongly supports chiropractic treatments as an integral part of health care and a way for injured people to manage their pain and injury without drugs or surgery.
