WorkplaceNL is committed to ensuring that, when possible, injured and disabled workers receive timely and appropriate health services that facilitate early and safe return to work.

As part of this, we can arrange clinics with orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists and a multidisciplinary program referred to as EMPOWER. 

These service providers may recommend that you receive diagnostic testing such as an MRI. If your health care provider determines you require one of these services, he/she can ask us to arrange for this service. Your case manager can also determine this need and refer you directly.

WorkplaceNL values and promotes treatment programs that focus on early intervention along with controlled, progressive, active exercises and functional activities. It should also emphasize your responsibility in the recovery and return to work process. As part of your recovery, you may choose from a variety of treatment options that include physiotherapy, occupational rehabilitation, chiropractic care and acupuncture.

Our Worker Services Team also consults with a variety of health care providers, including physicians, physiotherapists, chiropractors and occupational therapists. These professionals provide advice to your case manager to ensure you receive the services you need to recover and return to work.
