#EMBRYINSIGHTS: We’re answering burning legal and common situational questions, to guide you in the right direction!

Q: Is it okay for me to participate in additional rehab that my doctor hasn’t recommended, but I think may help in the healing process?

A: I strongly recommend avoiding this and all physical rehabilitative activities that are not directly recommended by your doctor. Why? Because insurance defense lawyers will try to use this against you during a deposition and could then use that deposition in court. They could try and argue that you’re capable of performing activity XYZ and this is inconsistent with someone suffering from your particular injury. The best advice to follow is that of your doctor. Please give us a call at 1-844-44EMBRY to discuss your matter further.
