Were you involved in a work place accident? If you have been injured at work you need to get the right treatment as soon as possible. Getting the right treatment for injuries sustained at work are important to getting you out of pain and back to work as soon as possible.

When you have an injury at work it doesn’t just affect your work life, but it can also have effects on your family as well. That’s why it is important to make an appointment to see the highly qualified Physiotherapists at Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta as soon as an injury has occurred. Work cover claims tend to run smoother if you take action close to the time of your workplace accident.

Common work place accidents treated through WorkCover NSW include:

  •  Lower back injuries and disc bulges
  • Nerve damage or sciatica
  • Sprain/strain injuries
  • Cervical spine (neck), shoulders or in the elbow (lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow) injuries
  • Office professionals: Injuries from poor work ergonomic and poor posture during long hours of computer work
  • Receptive Strain injury: Any type of work that has a repetitive nature – office, factory or warehouse based injury

Work place Accident: Less than 6 weeks ago

1. Report the incident to your supervisor.

2. Go to your Doctor for a WorkCover NSW certificate detailing your injury and be sure that they refer you for Physiotherapy treatment.

3. Give the Doctors certificate to your supervisor and your Physiotherapist. WorkCover claim numbers are normally issued within 24 hours of lodgement.

4. Attend Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta for assessment and treatment. If a claim number from WorkCover has been issued, no fees are payable. If the claim number is still being processed, any fees paid will be reimbursed back to you once you are issued with a claim number.

5. Bring the Work cover forms with your claim number and the insurance companies contact details to your Physiotherapy appointment and we will bill the insurance company directly.

6. Get the treatment you require to get better and back to work in the shortest possible time frame.
