Physiotherapy services dedicated to helping you recover from workplace injuries and accidents.  

Specialty WorkCover Physio Services

Infinite Health offers WorkCover physiotherapy services in Sydney that for individuals that have suffered a workplace injury. If you have sustained an injury as a result of an on-the-job accident or in the line of work, you are entitled to claim a reimbursement of your physiotherapy sessions, or bill them directly to your employer’s workers compensation insurance under the NSW workers compensation scheme. 

 

Our physiotherapists at Infinite Health are WorkCover approved and can provide effective treatment and relief for a range of health conditions commonly sustained in the workplace. We work closely with you to determine the cause of your pain or discomfort, and apply targeted treatment to help you recover safely and ensure that you are in a good physical condition before returning to work. 

Common Workplace Injuries That We Treat

Workplace injuries can vary in severity and impact on bodily functions depending on the type of industry and work that is performed. Some of the most common work-sustained injuries our physiotherapists are adept in treating include:

  • Musculoskeletal strain or sprains in the hands, arms, legs, back, or neck as a result of repeated movement of heavy loads. 

  • Back or neck pain due to long hours of sitting or improper lifting techniques

  • Overuse injuries such as tendinitis or bursitis that develop due to excessive strain on tendons and soft tissues, especially in the knees. 

  • Postural issues and musculoskeletal imbalances that result from prolonged standing or sitting. 

  • General stress and fatigue that result in uncomfortable headaches or muscle tightness that limits range of movement. 

  • Joint pain or injuries that result from a fall or workplace accident, ranging from mild sprains to dislocation. 

Our WorkCover physiotherapists will perform an overall physical check during initial consultation to confirm the type and severity of your workplace injury. Following that, we will develop a targeted treatment plan to help ensure a smooth recovery so that you can make the necessary arrangements for when to return to work.

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

 

 

What types of workplace injuries are covered under WorkCover?

There are a wide variety of workplace injuries covered under WorkCover, ranging from mild sprains and strains to severe musculoskeletal conditions. In general, if you have sustained an physical injury in the line of work or due to a workplace accident, it will usually be covered under WorkCover. 

 

What paperwork do I need to claim physio services under WorkCover?
 

The paperwork for claiming physio services under WorkCover can be obtained in 3 simple steps:

 

1. Reporting the injury to your employer
 

Employers in NSW are legally obligated to report any workplace injuries in an accident register, so it’s important that you notify them of the injuries you have sustained as soon as possible. 

2. Visiting a doctor
 

Seek a medical diagnosis from your doctor for the workplace injury. Once a proper diagnosis has been obtained, your doctor will provide you with a NSW WorkCover Certificate of Capacity, that outlines the nature of your injury and your need for physio treatment. 

3. Claiming for physio services
 

Request for a workers compensation claim form from your employer or doctor, and fill it out with the relevant details of your injury and claim amount for physio services. This form and the Certificate of Capacity can then be submitted to your employer for processing.

 

 

How often should I see a physio?

 

It depends on how much treatment and time your injury will require to fully recover and heal. More severe conditions such as late stage tendinitis, can require up to a few months for healing even with targeted treatment, while minor pain or strains can usually be resolved within a week or two. 

 

Once our WorkCover physiotherapists have a clear idea of the state of your workplace injury, we will be able to provide an estimated recovery time and schedule for how often you will need to come in for treatment. 

What kind of treatment will I receive?

 

Again, this will depend on the type of injury you have sustained. At Infinite Health, we offer a wide range of treatments from remedial massages to chiropractic services. After we have identified the source of your pain or injury, we will prescribe a tailored treatment plan to help you return to full health as quickly and comfortably as possible.
