Workers Compensation Physiotherapy

Helping workers recover and/or return to work.

Physiotherapists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and approved by SIRA to provide treatment and facilitate a safe and durable recovery at work.  IYM Physiohterapy is WorkCover approved meaning they are trained to treat injured workers within a compensation environment.

Our focus is on achieving a safe and durable return to work and our physiotherapists follow workers compensation physiotherapy administrative procedures developed in conjunction with the Australian Physiotherapy Association. We have a proven track record of providing effective, evidence based programs that are benchmarked with validated outcome measures.

Tailored Programs

We recognise that each client has different needs; programs are designed according to the injured workers physical capacity/injury, work demands and the goals of their program.

Effective Communication The Key To Successful WorkCover Physiotherapy

When dealing with WorkCover injury claims IYM Physiotherapy practitioners regularly communicate between the nominated treating doctor, insurers, employers and any other necessary health professionals.  By working in conjunction with the above parties with regular feedback and providing relevant information we smooth the return to work process and ensure tat you have the right support.

Common WorkCover Injuries

Some of the common workers compensation physiotherapy injuries we see include patients complaining of back and neck pain, shoulder and knee pain as well as foot, ankle, elbow and wrist pain.  WorkCover claims may include patients receiving treatment for injuries that are the result of a specific incident or for injury from a repetitive or prolonged action causing an overuse injury.

How do I start

You will need to bring your WorkCover referral from your doctor indicating physiotherapy treatment has been prescribed. Once we have this referral, your workers compensation claim number and have confirmed this with your workers compensation insurance company we will bill your insurer directly.

 

Reshan is a very knowledgeable man. In just 2 visits he has taught me a lot about how my body functions and has been a major part of my knee rehabilitation. The best thing about Reshan is that unlike most physios he doesn’t try to see you as often or as long as possible but instead tries to solve your problem as soon as possible. Legend! Claudia is an excellent addition to the team as well.
