All our physios are registered with WorkSafe Victoria and perhaps more importantly, our office staff are happy to guide you through the forms, requirements and paperwork that can come with a work-related injury or illness
Our aim is to use the best and most appropriate treatment approach for you. We want to get you back to work using the best and latest physiotherapy treatments and technologies, using education and tools so you manage your own body but most of all, we want to help you get back to your “old self”.
If you are injured at work, you will need to report the incident to your employer as soon as possible. If you require time off work, you will need writing-help.org/blog/shakespeare-essay an initial medical certificate and assessment from your GP. Some workplace injuries do not require time away from work but may still cause problems. In this instance, you can receive physiotherapy treatment without a medical certificate.
In all cases, a physiotherapy management plan will be completed and sent to your employer, treating doctor and WorkSafe.
Work place visits and occupational safety assessments
We have physiotherapists that are trained to provide expert advice on work place and occupational safety. Our philosophy is that it is more important to prevent an injury than to provide expert physiotherapy treatment after an injury. So if you or your employer share this vision, we can help.
