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
