Does my medical care end when the doctor releases me from treatment?

No, your employer and/or their insurance company are responsible for paying for all medical care necessary to treat your work related injury, however as stated above they will choose your medical providers.  This includes all forms of care and treatment, whether hospital, medical, therapy, nursing, diagnostic testing, surgery, physical rehabilitation or pain management.  The right to medical care and treatment may continue for the rest of your life for conditions related to your work injury or occupational disease.
