Book WorkCover Program Consult
Active Physio Health works with WorkCover and Employers to deliver outcome-focused and goal-orientated services to injured workers.
Following principles set by WorkCover, Active Physio Health help workers return to work as quickly and safely as possible. We guide patients through recovery from beginning to end and ensure they are returned to work rehabilitated and well educated to prevent further damage.
Active Physio Health delivers exceptional service. Educating the injured worker on the importance of staying active and, if possible, to remain at work is a very important component in the recovery process. This helps to restore function, decrease disability, and increases the likelihood of returning the worker to full duties sooner.
We believe that communication between WorkCover, treating medical practitioners, the employer, and other service providers are vital to ensure everyone involved is fully informed on the workers progress – this helps to provide a better outcome for the worker. It is important that the worker is rehabilitated physically and psychologically, so Active Physio Health identifies any risks that may hinder their recovery or return to work. Active Physio Health helps to set realistic goals with the WorkCover case manager that focus on suitable duties and return to work.
If a worker fails to reach the required abilities to return to their original working duties, Active Physio Health will visit the workplace with the employer to identify suitable duties beneficial to the employer and worker alike. If there are no suitable duties for the worker, Active Physio Health will assist in finding host employment at an alternative place of employment until the worker is fully rehabilitated.
