Re: nerve doctors
If the cause of the injury is work related you can only see the physician's that the WC company agrees to - seeing your own physician may mean you must pay the cost of the care. When your insurance company finds out it is work related they can deny the claims as he should be treated under WC. Depending on where the pain is will depend on what type of doctor to see. Chest pain can be "referred" pain - nerves that travel through there injured (for example, some people have had back or neck problems that manifest partly in chest pain). A neurologist may be a good place to start.
