WCB (Workers Compensation Board)


  • All five of our clinic locations are Workers Compensation Board (WCB) contracted

  • A doctors referral and claim number are not required to book in as your physiotherapist can begin the report as a first responder. 

  • Your employer is required to report the injury to WCB here within the first 72 hours should the injury require more than first aid. Your health care provider (doctor or Physiotherapist) must report the injury to WCB within 48 hours.
  • At your initial assessment, the physiotherapist will come up with an appropriate treatment plan applicable to your specific injury and then we will submit the paperwork directly to WCB for your claim.  It may take up to a few weeks for your claim to process with WCB.

  • Gradual return to work plans and modified duties are available if needed

  • For more information, you can access the WCB Worker Handbook (effective January 2015) here

 

 


What to Expect

On Your First Visit

Initially when you come in to the clinic, we will have you check in with our receptionists who will have forms for you to fill out consenting for your treatment before you see the Physiotherapist/Massage Therapist. We ask that you arrive a few minutes early for your appointment to provide time to complete this.

Your Physiotherapy Assessment will take approximately 60 minutes, in which the therapist will discuss your case history, the nature of the injury and any other relevant information. and contributing factors. Along with a physical evaluation of the affected area they will determine the cause of the injury and how best to treat you as effective and efficiently as possible. From there, they will determine a treatment plan that will best suit your needs and share this with you before beginning treatment that day.

On Follow Up Visits

Subsequent visits can range from approximately 45-70 minutes in length depending on your course of treatment. The session may involve various forms of treatment based on the individual’s needs.
