They say a workplace injury happens every 7 seconds, and some workplace injuries are severe enough that the affected individual may have to miss time and apply for worker’s compensation. While worker’s compensation will take care of you financially while you miss work, you will need to get the care you need in the meantime to rehab from your injury.
The length and intensity of your rehab will depend on the nature of the injury, but you must begin your rehab quickly or the injury could become worse. It is possible for you to receive physical therapy in your home from an accredited professional to help you rehab from your injury.
