Return to Work Services

Speed up the process of getting workers back on the job

With help from our experienced team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, athletic therapists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, psychologists, dietitians and rehabilitation assistants, your clients and employees can recover and get back to work quickly.

We have many years of experience in successfully handling both physical and mental health issues with services for a straightforward recovery to a complex or prolonged case. We document a range of measures and provide a clear, objective report you need to track engagement and progress as your client moves toward their return to work in a safe, timely way.

To fully support their recovery process, our team will work with you to offer a range of services suitable for workers with acute or chronic injuries, chronic pain, psychosocial and mental health issues, cardiac or other medical conditions.

Reconditioning

This work-oriented program assists in early, safe return to work through goal-directed reconditioning. For clients whose symptoms are stable, but need to improve their strength, endurance or mood. Individual programs are developed and progressed by a physiotherapist with an emphasis on returning function. Functional ability (including basic lifting and carrying) is tested on assessment and discharge.

Functional Capacity Evaluation

Our medical, kinesiophysical approach uses the research-based, objective testing of WorkWell protocol to identify strength and activity tolerances. Testing procedures help identify any self-limiting behaviours while ensuring no injuries occur during testing.

Pre-work Screenings

Ensure that the people you hire are physically capable of performing a job, especially if the job is physically demanding.

Work Hardening

This fully supervised program is supported by a multi-disciplinary team to provide an environment where returning workers rebuild not only the physical ability, strength and endurance to return to work but gain self-confidence and skills to manage better.

Job & Physical Demands Analyses

A PDA/JDA is a systematic analysis performed by an occupational therapist to quantify and evaluate the physical demands of the essential tasks of a job. It is often used in conjunction with other Return to Work Services and Pre-work Screenings.
