Work Related & Third Party Injuries

 

If you have been injured at work, a quality physio and a speedy recovery is essential !

 

Workplace injuries are very common and may be debilitating. They can occur as a result of a fall or incident but quite often are due to overuse and the repetitive nature of one’s work.

The Physiotherapists at Redfern Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine are highly experienced and competent in working with injuries under the Workers Compensation and Compulsory Third Party Schemes, with an in-depth understanding of the importance and benefits of a safe and durable recovery.

All our therapists are WorkCover approved. As part of managing your injuries, we will work closely with your nominated treating doctor, insurance case managers and employers to help streamline the return to work process.

We provide a variety of options from manual therapy to exercise based rehab.

In severe work injuries, a strengthening program may be critical to getting you back to work. We offer these programs at one of our gym locations; they run from 4 weeks to 3 months in duration and will make changes for life.

 

 

Early physiotherapy intervention following a workplace injury have been shown to be valuable and effective for both injury management and prevention. Physiotherapy interventions also help to prevent the transition of an injury from acute to chronic and optimise your health and wellbeing.

 

Our return to work rehabilitation programs will help in:

  • Reduce your pain levels
  • Educate and implement strategies to cope during your time off work
  • Increasing muscular strength and endurance
  • Gradually increasing work hours and tasks in accordance with the requirements of your occupation
  • Returning you to work as early as possible whilst mitigating the risk of an injury recurrence

Our physiotherapists will treat your injury throughout all the varying stages of the return to work process, with treatment goals aimed at facilitating your recovery and work capacity. In addition to clinic-based interventions, our management can include workplace based ergonomic assessments as well as risk management processes in consultation with your employer.

Excellent assessment skills, as well as our expert knowledge of physiology, tissue healing and biomechanics enables our physiotherapists to provide a broad range of services to assist you with your injury management. Our team have extensive knowledge and understanding of the relationship between your work history, work environment, lifestyle, and mechanisms of injury, which allows us to assess work capacity and identify suitable duties in all phases of the rehabilitation process.
