Physiotherapy can help significantly in recovering from an injury after a slip, trip or fall, for instance. Booking physiotherapy after an injury is therefore often advised by doctors. The question is when is the best time to book physiotherapy?
When should you book physiotherapy after an injury?
You should book physiotherapy after an injury as soon as you are advised to do so. There are two reasons for this. First, getting physiotherapy as soon after an injury as possible will help to speed your recovery.
Secondly, if your injury by slip, trip or falling was caused by someone else’s mistake or negligence, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation. In this case, you may be able to claim for any expenses you may have incurred due to having physiotherapy after an injury. This does, however, mean that you will have to prove that your injury was caused by someone else and that the physiotherapy you paid for was related to this accident.
