How Much Therapy Am I Entitled To?

If you have been involved in a workplace injury and have suffered injuries, you will most likely be placed in a program of care which typically consists of 8 weeks of therapy.

Programs of care include lower back, shoulder, upper musculoskeletal, and lower musculoskeletal. If you have multiple injuries, you may be put into multiple programs of care.

In certain cases, you may not fit into a program of care. In that case, we will contact WSIB and determine the treatment plan required.

If you have not fully recovered from your injuries after 8 weeks, we will notify the WSIB and work with them to get you more therapy. As we have an extensive and in-depth knowledge of your rights after an accident, we will do our best to get you the treatment you need and deserve.
