Common questions about Workplace Injury Physiotherapy
Do I need to see my doctor before I start physiotherapy?
No, you do not need to see your doctor before you start physiotherapy. Physiotherapists are primary care providers and can even help complete the necessary paperwork to help you start the claim process.
I don’t have my claim number yet. Can I start physiotherapy?
Some injuries, particularly low back injuries, do not require a claim number to begin treatment. Early intervention is important, so do not delay when you have been injured at work.
How many treatments am I eligible for?
Most WSIB treatment programs and based on time, not number of treatments. Every injury is different. Visit www.wsib.on.ca for more information, or speak to your physiotherapist about eligibility for your particular injury.
