Can I write off medical expenses related to injuries caused by my work?

I have carpal tunnel syndrom and chronic neck/back pain as the result of my profession (yes, I can prove that these issues are caused by my work). I recieve regular chiropractic care and massage therapy to help manage these issues. I do have health insurance, but it doesn't cover even close to half of these expenses. Can I write off the cost of this care, not covered by my insurance, as a business expense??

To be absolutely sure you should check with a tax accountant

 

but I am 99% sure he will say, no, those are schedule A deductions subject to the floor amount for medical expense
