No one goes into work in the morning hoping that today is the day they’ll get injured on the job. On the contrary, a workplace injury can be a major setback, which is why it’s so important to take advantage of Worker’s Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) benefits.
The WSIB is responsible for releasing funds to workers who have undergone an injury while on the job, to provide them with lost wages and healthcare coverage. Under the umbrella of WSIB benefits, the following clinical services are covered:
At Full Function Rehab & Wellness, we’re happy to offer both of these services, and even integrate them together into a cohesive treatment plan thanks to our interactive team environment. We understand how much mental and physical distress follows a workplace injury, and we’re here to help.
We understand that you have options when it comes to WSIB treatment in Vaughan and Woodbridge, but the difference you’ll find at Full Function is the amount of genuine care and compassion we invest into every patient.
Perhaps your pain tolerance just isn’t back to normal after your injury—that’s okay, we’ll take it slow and steady until you’re feeling back to normal. Maybe you’re having trouble overcoming some mental barriers and allowing yourself to rehabilitate fully—that’s okay too, we’ll work with you on overcoming that trauma so you can restore physical function faster.
We’ve performed WSIB treatment in Woodbridge and Vaughan many times, so we understand the specific challenges that are associated with this specific type of treatment. We understand how difficult it can be to place your trust in a clinic following an injury on the job, and we promise we won’t betray that trust once you begin receiving services from Full Function Rehab & Wellness.
Often, people who work physically demanding jobs have a tendency to push themselves past the realm of what’s possible or realistic. The fact is, the Worker’s Safety and Insurance Board is in place for the very purpose of ensuring that you receive the compensation and the care that you’re entitled to after an injury, and there’s no shame in taking advantage of it.
Once a claim is filed, you will be free to choose the rehabilitation clinic from which you’d like to receive services. Rehabilitation is part of what you’re entitled to, and you’ll never be able to return to work at your full capacity if you don’t give yourself the chance to undergo physical therapy or chiropractic care to resolve any lingering issues resulting from your injury.
So, how doe the process of receiving WSIB treatment work? The first step is to initiate your claim. Although you can set up an assessment with a clinic prior to filing your claim, the process will be much smoother and faster if you get in touch with the WSIB in the first place.
You may also be wondering, “is WSIB treatment going to be painful, and won’t that just exacerbate the injury?” While it’s possible that certain parts of your treatment will be uncomfortable in the moment, they’ll help you resolve more deep rooted dysfunction that will cause you greater pain for a much longer period if left untreated.
Some examples of things you might be experiencing that require WSIB treatment are:
- Continued pain and immobility at the site of the injury
- A general stiffness or discomfort near the area of the injury
- Dysfunction or misalignment of the spine resulting from a fall or other workplace injury
There are virtually limitless repercussions of injuries at work. Physical rehabilitation is a necessary result of almost all workplace injuries, so take advantage of your WSIB benefits and contact us as soon as you’ve filed your claim to start receiving treatment sooner than later.
