    Unless you want to pay for the other treatment yourself you really have no choice if WC rejected the treatment at a pain management dr. The other reason could be that they don't want you to "mask" your symptoms prior to seeing the neurosurgeon to get a proper diagnosis. If the neuro deems it proper when you ask him about this he may refer you to the same pain mgt dr and then it would be approved.
