Relief from pain in the North Carolina Workers' Compensation System

What happens if you have healed from your workers compensation injury, but you still have severe pain? Say for instance you fell from a ladder and tore your ACL. After surgery and weeks of physical therapy, you are nearly healed, but you still have severe pain that keeps you from doing your job.
