Here at Physio Optimum we treat a wide range of injuries that occur at work. When a person is injured at work they are covered by the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Scheme. This involves covering the cost of reasonable medical treatment and rehabilitation. If you are injured at work you first need to see your doctor who will then refer you to physiotherapy if appropriate.
Once this process has been initiated you will be assessed by one of our physiotherapists who will ascertain what treatment and rehabilitation your particular injury requires. This may include, “hands on treatment” by the physiotherapist, Pilates, hydrotherapy, gym or other exercises to get you fit and back to work again.
If you have a work injury and think you may need physiotherapy, please feel free to contact our friendly staff who will guide you through the Workcover process.
