Work Injury Management works closely with insurance companies such as RACQ, Suncorp and NRMA to assess a person’s function after motor vehicle accidents (MVAs).

We pride ourselves on being ethical and transparent communicators with regards to patient treatment and have an excellent return to work rating/return to regular activities for our CTP patients without over-servicing.

We have holistically adopted the “Clinical Framework for the Delivery of Health Services” and we work within its guiding principles, which are:

•Measurement and demonstration of the effectiveness of treatment,

•Adoption of a biopsychosocial approach,

•Empowering the injured person to manage their injury,

•Implementing goals focused on optimising function, participating and return to work, and

•Base treatment on best available research evidence.
