Work Injuries

Work-related injuries are sadly common.  Injuries can stop you going to work, caring for your loved ones, socializing, and taking part in the recreational activities that mean so much to you (and your health). If left untreated, these injuries can lead to ongoing physical issues and complications that cause further disruption.

That’s why it’s so important to treat them and get back on track as quickly as you can.

Your physiotherapist will treat your injury in the way they consider the most effective, based on their training and their professional & personal experience. Physiotherapists can treat injuries, relieve pain, and encourage recovery in a variety of ways.

Treatment might include:

  • Stretching exercises to help improve flexibility
  • Personalized exercise programs to suit your physical capabilities and goals
  • Manipulation or mobilization of joints and soft tissue release
  • Supportive taping to ease or prevent injuries, relieve pain, and aid function
  • Acupuncture to assist muscle function and relieve pain
  • Recommending support braces
  • Applying protective devices or equipment as required

Treatment for work-related injuries is often covered by the Worker’s Compensation Board or WCB. Not sure about your insurance coverage? Give us a call, we can help: 204-255-0597
