How many WSBC physiotherapy treatments am I eligible for if my claim is approved? 

Recovering from an injury can be daunting, but physiotherapy often provides essential support. The primary aim of these treatments is to restore you to your pre-injury healthy condition and make functional improvements that enable a safe return to work. If you begin physiotherapy within 60 days of your injury, WSBC pre-approves 16 sessions for the first six weeks post-injury.  Should you require additional treatment, your physiotherapist will submit an Extension Request outlining your progress, anticipated improvements, and the number of sessions needed to reach those goals.
