Just because injuries happen at work, doesn’t mean you have to be left dealing with their painful or limiting consequences for
years to come - or the confusing paperwork.
Up to one fifth of workplace injuries in Australia have involved the feet, toes or the lower limbs, and with so many professionals
constantly on their feet and on the go, it’s no surprise.
Our podiatrists are registered WorkCover service providers, dedicated to providing you with the best care and rehabilitation so you can
return to work safely - and importantly - get back to feeling great on your feet.
Yes, if you suffer a foot or leg injury and have your WorkCover claim accepted with podiatry noted as a modality of treatment, then you can
have your podiatry treatments with us covered with no copayments. If your WorkCover claim is still in the process of being approved, you can
still see us and cover the cost of the appointment yourself, and then be reimbursed by WorkCover once your claim has been approved.
Sometimes, people may need supporting evidence from a podiatrist to submit along with their claim, such as a detailed medical report to help
determine if podiatry care is needed. If that’s the case, we’re happy to help with an initial WorkCover assessment appointment.
Generally speaking, you will have a strong case for WorkCover compensation if you sustain a foot or leg injury while at work, while you’re travelling to or from work, during a scheduled work break or as a direct result of doing your job.
You don’t need a referral to see us. If you have an approved WorkCover Queensland claim number and a current medical certificate completed by your GP, you can book directly in with our experienced podiatrists and start your journey to recovery and wellbeing.
As part of your rehabilitation, our podiatrists will carry out a comprehensive assessment to understand the extent and nature of your injuries, and create a custom injury management plan. Over time as you progress, we will reassess and make adjustments to your plan as needed to give you the best outcomes safely and efficiently. These assessments are shared with your GP, case worker and other members of your care team, so everyone stays up to date with your progress. Your comprehensive assessment with us includes:
