I have been on Ltd (Great west life) for two years with chronic low back pain and my dr. Has said I am not able to work.
I currently can not sit, stand or walk for more then 15 minutes
I have tried many treatments to no avail including three sessions of physiotherapy.
The last six week session was work hardening and excruciating and could not sleep for more than 2 hours due to pain.
Through the six weeks I voiced my concerns of increasing pain but they ENCOURAGED me to push through it.
I had a hard time being there for an hour, now they booked two 8 hour sessions for physical assessments.
I physically cannot do this.
What are my options?

You should not do anything that causes you pain and certainly nothing that your doctor doesn’t agree with. If the insurer forces you or cuts you off because of this then call or email me ASAP and we will help. My contact info is below.
