Navigating the WCB Process for Work-Related Injury Treatment

Understanding the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) Process

If you've experienced a work-related injury and are seeking treatment at Turning Point Physical Therapy in Edmonton, it's essential to understand the process involved with the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB). Here's an overview of the process:

Report the Injury: Immediately report the injury to your employer and seek medical attention. Your employer should file a report with the WCB.

Medical Assessment: Visit a healthcare professional for a thorough assessment of your injury. This medical report will be critical for your WCB claim.

File a WCB Claim: You or your healthcare provider must submit a claim to the WCB. This can often be done online or via phone. Ensure all details about the injury and how it occurred are accurately documented.

WCB Review and Approval: The WCB will review your claim, assess your medical reports, and decide on your eligibility for compensation benefits. They may contact you or your employer for additional information.

Treatment at  Physical Therapy Clinic: Once your claim is approved, you can start receiving work injury physiotherapy in Edmonton at Turning Point Physical Therapy. We will collaborate with WCB to ensure your treatment aligns with their guidelines and your recovery needs.

Ongoing Communication: Throughout your treatment, continuous communication between the WCB, your employer, and your physiotherapist is crucial. This ensures everyone is updated on your recovery progress and any adjustments to your treatment plan.

Return-to-Work Plan: As you progress in your recovery, we will work with you, your employer, and the WCB to develop a return-to-work plan. This plan will aim to reintegrate you into your job safely and effectively, considering any necessary accommodations or modifications.

Closure of Claim: Once you have recovered and returned to work, your WCB claim will be closed. However, if you have ongoing needs related to your injury, further arrangements can be made.
