Workplace Injury Rehabilitation (WSIB)

There will always be a chance of workplace accidents, but specific jobs are undoubtedly riskier than others. You can lessen the likelihood of injury at work by being aware of the risks involved in your work and adopting preventative measures. However, if you sustain an injury at work, a rehabilitation program can assist you in healing and returning to your job.

What occurs if you sustain an injury while working?

Prompt Reaction: Obtain first aid or medical attention depending on the extent of the injury.

Report the Injury: As soon as possible, inform your boss or supervisor about the injury. Workplace injuries must be reported within a specific time in many jurisdictions.

Documentation: You might receive forms from your employer to complete about the injury. It is crucial to give precise and comprehensive details regarding the nature of the injury and how it happened.

Seek Medical Attention: In addition to first aid, you might need to seek additional medical attention, depending on the severity of your injury. This could entail visiting the doctor, an urgent care center, or a hospital.

Workers’ Compensation: You might be eligible for benefits if the injury is related to your job. Medical expense coverage, wage loss coverage, disability benefits, and vocational rehabilitation are a few examples of these benefits.

Follow-Up Care: Comply with treatment recommendations from healthcare providers and show up for all scheduled follow-up appointments. It could involve chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, or other types of recovery.

Return to Work: Your healthcare provider may give you the all-clear to resume work once you’ve healed enough. Your employer may have procedures to handle any limitations brought on by the injury, whether short-term or long-term.

Legal Recourse: You might need legal counsel or representation in some situations, especially if disagreements about what caused the injury or how it was handled.

Common work-related injury causes vary depending on the nature of the job and the industry. However, some general causes include:

  • Slips, Trips, and Falls
  • Overexertion
  • Falling Objects
  • Repetitive Motion
  • Vehicle Accidents
  • Machine Accidents
  • Exposure to Hazardous Substances
  • Workplace Violence
  • Fires and Explosions
  • Electrical Hazards

In addition to accepting WSIB injury claims, Halton Chiropractic Clinic provides physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs that restore function, general health, and fitness to facilitate a patient’s prompt return to work or normal lifestyle. Our programs aim to relieve pain from injuries, strengthen the affected area, and enhance and restore functional abilities, regardless of the cause of workplace injury—a slip, fall, overexertion, or repetitive motion.
