Work Related Back Pain? Beginning October 1st, the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), will pay for low-back pain acupuncture treatments as part of a two-year pilot program to determine the effectiveness and appropriateness of acupuncture in the Worker’s Compensation System.
How can I find participating acupuncturists?
- Use L&I’s Find A Doctor tool:
- Select the “All Providers” radio button.
- Enter your town or address in the “Start location” field, then click “Search.”
When you receive results, on the right-hand side you will see an option to “Sort by.”
- Click the drop-down menu and select “Provider Type.” You will see the list of acupuncturists participating in the pilot, sorted by proximity to you.
If you or someone you know has been injured at work, call Althauser Rayan Abbarno, LLP at (360) 736-1301 for a FREE Consultation in Centralia or Olympia.
