Why Choosing the Northern Edge Physical Therapy is Crucial for Worker’s Compensation Claims

Working with a physical therapy clinic that knows how to process claims efficiently is important for several reasons. First and foremost, it can help ensure that you receive the care you need in a timely manner. If your claim is not processed efficiently, you may experience delays in receiving treatment, which can prolong your recovery time and impact your overall health and well-being.


We are experienced in processing claims efficiently and can help reduce the stress and frustration that often comes with making a worker’s compensation claim. The process of filing a claim and navigating the worker’s compensation system can be complex and overwhelming, particularly if you are already dealing with the physical and emotional effects of a work-related injury. The knowledgeable and experienced team at Northern Edge Physical Therapy can guide you through the process, answer your questions, and provide the support you need to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Choosing a physical therapy clinic that knows how to process claims efficiently can save you time and money. Delays in receiving treatment can result in additional medical expenses and lost wages, as well as an overall longer recovery time. By working with our team who can efficiently process your claim, you  get the care you need and get back to work and your normal routine as quickly as possible.

We work closely with employers and insurance providers to ensure that worker’s compensation claims are processed smoothly and efficiently, minimizing delays and maximizing the chances of a successful outcome.

Treatment At Northern Edge Physical Therapy

At Northern Edge Physical Therapy, we first address where the pain is originating from. Most often  pain is not from where you feel it, but is related to muscles and movement in other parts of the body that are not functioning correctly. 

Once we have interpreted your pain signals, we can then proceed with treatment.  Many patients, after only a couple visits, have reported a substantial lessening of pain and a return to normalcy.

Dr. Jimmy Sliwa

Physical Therapist PT, DPT, CMTPT


I often get asked, “why did you choose to become a physical therapist?” To be honest, it wasn’t my first choice. I wanted to be a coach and teacher. I enjoy helping others see their potential and encourage them to become their best.

Through a series of internships and clinical experiences, I realized physical therapists are nothing more than coaches and teachers for health and wellness. I began to see how physical therapists can coach patients to better health and quality of life. That’s what I wanted to do!

My clinical expertise is taken from my athletic background as a dual sport collegiate athlete in men’s soccer and track and field. I also am passionate about using technology to modernize physical therapy and give patients the best results. Through the best tools and compassionate care I have seen countless patients reach their healing potential.
