What is Worker’s Compensation Board (WCB)?
WCB is an insurance program paid by employers that covers workplace injuries, including wage replacement, healthcare costs and rehabilitation costs.
What Should You Do If You Experience an Injury at Work?
- Report the injury to your employer and to WCB Alberta right away. Note: there are different forms required if you were involved in a work-related automotive accident, injured outside of the province, or if your injury was progressive in nature.
- Tell your chiropractor immediately so they can report the injury to WCB within the required time frame. The full injury report will then be submitted by your chiropractor at Peak Health & Performance to WCB within 48 hours.
- Seek care as prescribed. Our clinic will always prescribe evidence-based conservative care, effectively getting you back to work if followed directly.
- Progress and final reports are submitted directly by your chiropractor at Peak Health & Performance.
