Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Maintenance

Postby cpendo » Tue Oct 25, 2011 8:33 pm

If a patient has been seen for 2 years for myofascial pain syndrome,The patient receives manual therapy, SPROM, stretching, and exercises, and has relief with treatment for a week or two at best. The insurance company is not questioning treatment and the physician is persistent on the patient continuing therapy for extended periods of time and is willing to provide a letter of medical necessity to the insurance company if ever questioned....in your opinion, is it ok to continue to provide what would be considered maintenance therapy to the patient?
