Physiotherapy For Workers Compensation
Have you recently experienced an injury at work? Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta can assist you in overcoming your work injury. When booking your initial assessment, please let us know if a claim number has been issued to you. We can also guide you through the complex process and the steps you need to take.
Workers Compensation: Individualised Approach To Treatment
At Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta, we understand the stress that comes with a workplace injury. You might be forced to take time off work due to your symptoms. On top of that, you may require physiotherapy treatment to make a full recovery and return to work. Our team strives to make this process a little less stressful, as well as help make your recovery as smooth as possible.
You will need to see your doctor prior to attending your first appointment. Your GP will fill out the necessary paperwork to create your workers compensation claim. You will also need to notify your work. At your initial consult with us. See the flow chart below:
If you are already receiving Physiotherapy services for a work cover injury and would like to change service providers, we will require approval from the insurance company. As a patient receiving Physiotherapy services, you can choose where you go for Physiotherapy services. Either you can let your case manager know of the change or we can contact your case manager on your behalf.
How many sessions will you receive?
Once a claim number has been issued, your insurer will automatically approve your first 8 Physiotherapy sessions. This is to provide you with early treatment and get you back to work as soon as possible. If you require further treatment, your Physiotherapist will work with you to submit the required paperwork to your work cover insurance provider for approval, outlining details of necessary treatment and management of your injury or condition.
How Workers Compensation Physiotherapy Can Help You
Workers Compensation Physiotherapy will help you get back to work. Your GP, Physiotherapist and any other health professional will work together as a team to assist you back into work. We will provide guidance and rehabilitation services to provide you with the best possible treatment.
What Is Workers Compensation Physiotherapy?
It’s the same as any other Physiotherapy service, but covered by Workers Compensation. Physiotherapy involves treatment for a work-related injury that occurred at work. It aims to assist your recovery in returning to work so that you are able to perform all work duties pain-free at full functional capacity.
What Does Workers Compensation Physiotherapy Cover?
To claim under workers compensation, your injury must have occurred due to your work. Workers compensation physiotherapy involves getting you back to work as quickly as possible. You may need to have time off work, or be performing modified duties as your injury heals. For example, if your job is very physical and labour intensive, you may have to cease all manual work for a while and only perform light admin duties. During the acute stages of your injury, Physiotherapy will involve pain relief methods such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisations, TENS and heat packs. Your Physiotherapist will work with you to assist you with your injury. Once your injury is stable we will progress you to exercises which may include range of motion, strength, endurance, and balance exercises. This is done so you are able to perform all the tasks you are required to do at work.
What Information Do I Need To Provide Before My Appointment?
Before your first appointment with us, you will need to see your GP who will organise your workers compensation paperwork. You will need to provide us with your claim number. You can also call us to discuss your situation and we can guide you through the process. Once you have the claim number, we can organise the other paper work after your first session.
