Section 36 of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the Act) states that the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) may provide payment for health care assistance. The Act further provides the YWCHSB with the authority and discretion to determine the necessity, character and sufficiency of health care assistance. This includes authorizing payment for appropriate therapeutic massage treatment required to assist in the treatment of an injured worker’s compensable injury and associated secondary disorders that may arise from the compensable injury.
Therapeutic massage treatment may be appropriate for some injuries in order to help an injured worker regain function and return to work in a timely and safe fashion. This policy establishes parameters for the appropriate authorization and safe use of therapeutic massage treatment for compensable injuries. It outlines the responsibilities of the injured worker, the massage therapist, the YWCHSB and medical practitioners.
