One of the most common questions that we get is when will my case settle or when will my case be ready to settle? I try and stress to every client that every case is different. Every person’s recovery is different. Every person’s response to pain or recovery from surgery is different. Essentially, once you’ve plateaued, once you’ve stopped getting better and stopped getting worse, once you determine that you will no longer receive any further procedures surgically or any other invasive treatments and you’re just maintaining your care, possibly going through chiropractic care, or physical therapy, or massage therapy just to alleviate the pain, but the improvement has stopped. At that point, we’re comfortable looking at a case to try to resolve it because we have a very good handle on what the permanency might be, we have a good handle on what the bulk of the important treatment already has been, and also a handle on how much maintenance care going.
