So I am on workmans comp due to an injury of my shoulder. It has been over 2 weeks and I still haven't been able to get in to see a ortho specialist. I had a small trip planned well before I hurt my shoulder at work. If I still abide by all of my restrictions would I be able to take a 3-4 day trip out of state?

As long as you are within your medical restrictions you can do whatever you want.

I think yes, you can :) I had a similar issue and everything was okay, besides some problems with travel insurance . But I think as long as you have medical restrictions, you can avoid working freely.
