Get people back to work, sooner
As you bridge gaps between injured workers and employers, coverage and care, having the right support is crucial. We can help simplify the process of reaching a positive outcome by providing a complete range of professional support.
Return to Work Services
With help from our experienced team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, athletic therapists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, psychologists, dietitians and rehabilitation assistants, your clients can recover and get back to work quickly. Let us help you find the right support with Functional Capacity Evaluations, Functional Reconditioning, Work Hardening, Job & Physical Demands Analyses and Early Injury Assessments.
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.
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 pain, symptoms and fear of re-injury.
