WSIB Patient Information
Gleeson Clinic is registered with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), allowing us to perform chiropractic care for WSIB cases.
The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is an agency of the Ontario provincial government dedicated to the prevention of all workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The WSIB oversees Ontario's workplace safety education and training system and administers Ontario's no-fault workplace insurance for employers and their workers.
Were you injured at work? Then the cost of your treatments may be fully covered by WSIB (workers' compensation).
At our office, we will help guide you through the whole WSIB process. If your claim is accepted, we'll start you on a thorough rehabilitation program to get you back in shape. If your claim is rejected, we will make alternate arrangements with you for your care.
