When it comes to workers compensation, no two cases are the same

To begin with all workers compensation clients need to have a current workers compensation medical certificate from their doctor with physiotherapy marked in the medical management section in order to visit a physiotherapist under workers compensation.

All our services are consistent with the WorkCover WA endorsed Clinical Framework in order to give the best health services possible to our clients.

At Aspire, our Physiotherapists are well experienced in work-related injuries and will be able to effectively assess and manage acute, sub-acute and chronic injuries sustained at work.

By combining our vast experience with the cutting edge technology of the AxIT System and our state of the art facilities, we are able to assess, monitor and treat work-related injuries including low back pain, shoulder sprains, neck pain and occupational overuse injuries such a lateral epicondyle tendinopathy (‘tennis elbow’), repetitive strain injury (RSI), carpal tunnel syndrome and many more.

Unfortunately, at times symptoms don’t settle as quickly as expected. Persistent or chronic pain is pain that hasn’t settled within 3 months, or pain that outlasts the expected healing times of the injured tissue.

A number of factors can contribute to this situation and there is the need for an extensive assessment and analysis of all these factors in order to determine the best pathway to a solution with an individual management plan.

We believe in the importance of a unified relationship between all stakeholders (the local GP, occupational rehabilitation providers, insurance company, the employer and of course the injured worker) and strive towards achieving best patient outcomes.

In addition it is important to us that we provide patient education to reduce injury risk in future and enable injured workers to safely return to normal work duties as quickly as possible.

We also provide pre-assessment screenings to help protect your workforce and reduce injury risk for all workers. To find out more visit our page on pre-assessment screening.

Covid-19/Coronavirus update

 

With the Covid-19 / Coronavirus pandemic the world is facing an uncertain and challenging time. As your healthcare partner, we understand and share the concern and anxiety you may feel about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Bunbury, WA, Australia and globally.

At Aspire Physiotherapy Bunbury the health and wellbeing of our clients and staff is always our highest priority.

To ensure we can continue to offer the high-quality physiotherapy service our clients have become accustomed to, we are taking additional infection control measures to mitigate the risk of infection. The systems we have put in place are guided by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (our professional body) and the Department of Health, and will be monitored and updated accordingly as the pandemic evolves inline with their recommendations.

As a relatively small practice, the number of people we interact with is limited and considered low-volume. We have cancelled our group rehabilitation and pilates sessions and have spread out our appointment times to minimise the congregation of people and allow for our disinfection procedures between appointments. Clients have the option to wait in their car and be notified once the physiotherapist is available (simply phone us upon arrival).

As part of our infection control system we ask our clients to contact us by phone / email to reschedule their appointment if any of the following apply:

  • Symptoms including fever, flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue and/or shortness of breath.
  • Recent travel (within 14 days of the scheduled appointment). 
  • Been in contact with person with confirmed Coronavirus in the last 14 days.

Please be vigilant, and if unsure please contact us before attending your appointment.

Thank you for your trust and support as we continue to keep our focus on the health and wellbeing of you and your family.
