Work Safe BC Physiotherapy

When workplace injuries happen, you may have coverage through WorkSafeBC for physiotherapy treatments at no cost to you. WorkSafeBC insurance provides rehabilitation services to help you recover from your work injury to get you healthy so you can return to work. Services may include physiotherapy services for orthopedic/musculoskeletal injuries, as well as home, neurological, or vestibular physiotherapy services.

Although we do not need a referral to get started with physiotherapy, we recommend that you visit your doctor if you haven’t already. Your doctor will complete a medical assessment and determine what treatments are necessary for your rehabilitation. You may need other treatments in addition to physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy to injured workers is offered free of charge on WorkSafeBC accepted claims.
