What to Expect
On your first visit, the physiotherapist will ask a number of questions and complete a few tests. WCB requires the physiotherapist to complete a number of forms and submit them within 24 hours of the evaluation. Once your physiotherapy claim has been approved, you will receive a standard program of care (6 weeks and limited to maximum of 21 visits). Your physiotherapist will reassess you at week 3 and week 6.
Once you have been injured, you need to contact WCB and ensure all the necessary paperwork is complete.
- Employee Statement
- Employer Statement
- Physician Report
- Physiotherapist Report
Modified Work and Modified Hours
If you are unable to complete your job tasks due to your injuries, the physician or physiotherapist will place you on modified duties or modified hours. If your are on modified duties, WCB expects regular reporting from physiotherapy. If you cancel more than 3 physiotherapy visits, WCB requires the clinic to contact them. During the recovery period, the physiotherapist focus will be on functional exercises. If yellow or red flags are identified, you may be required to follow up with your primary physician.
