The 2015 Annual New Mexico Workers Compensation (WC) meeting took place at the Ysleta resort in Albuquerque on May 13-15th. Dr’s Saiz and Romanelli were given an opportunity to lecture on causation issues regarding the neck and shoulder.

The concepts of temporal relationships, dose response and mechanistic plausibility were discussed. A literature review was also presented.

The WC talks and conference allow for meaningful interaction b/w MD’s, Lawyers, Insurance Companies, Physical Therapists and Nurses. The sharing of information allows for the adoption of best practices and methodology for better care of the injured worker.
