If you have been injured at work, you may be eligible for assistance to recover with Worker’s Compensation. The usual insurer for Worker’s Compensation in Queensland is WorkCover.
To claim, you must first have a current workers’ compensation certificate signed by a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner to cover chiropractic services.
Your insurer will then pay for up to 5 visits including your initial consultation. If further chiropractic care is required for your work-related injury, it must first be approved by your insurer.
It’s important to understand that a work injury can uncover other pre-existing damage and that workers’ compensation is not intended to rectify that, only your new injury.
- Get a certificate from your GP – they can lodge with WorkCover on your behalf
- Come to us. Get up to 5 sessions.
- Maybe you can get approval from insurer for more
Finally, if you want to strengthen your spine to keep from getting injured, that is your responsibility and of course we can help 🙂
