Oshawa Workplace Injury
Dynamic Balance Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre accepts Worker's Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) claims if you are hurt at work. If you would like to make a claim for an injury sustained at work, it is required that you report the incident to your employer as soon as possible and fill out the appropriate forms. It is advisable to visit your doctor who will recommend physiotherapy if needed. This recommendation should be forwarded to your employer as well as a WSIB case manager and/or adjudicator assigned to your claim. A review of your claim will determine whether physiotherapy treatment is authorized. Usually, up to 12 weeks of treatment is permitted.
Upon assessment of your condition, your physiotherapist along with your doctor, employer and WSIB nurse case manager will discuss and decide on the following issues:
- Appropriate time off work (if any) to allow for healing
- Return to work plan including possibility of modified duties for a specific time period or graduated hours until full time hours have been reached
Your physiotherapist may also be asked to fill out a Functional Abilities Form which describes what activities you can and cannot perform due to your injury. Dynamic Balance Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre bills WSIB directly for services rendered, which have been authorized.
