Being involved in a work-related accident causes stress for a number of reasons. It can be difficult to navigate the compensation and claims process. You have to cope with taking time off work. You have to treat your injury. While taking a physical toll on you, it also takes an emotional and mental toll on your well-being. Further, not all workplace injuries result from an accident, such as back and muscle strain, repetitive strain, tendonitis, or carpal tunnel.

One of the steps to take towards healing after any workplace injury is physiotherapy. Our trained physiotherapists can help with a variety of injuries. Our goal is to help you return to your normal level of functioning and importantly, help you return back to work.

Our Approach and Technique

Depending on the injury, physiotherapy can involve a variety of approaches and techniques to provide the best treatment. First, we provide an assessment with the patient to identify the help that is required, short and long term goals, and the best methods for treatment.

Our physiotherapy for work-related injuries can help:

  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Improve function
  • Relieve pain and stiffness
  • Provide ergonomic and lifestyle advice
  • Coordinate your return to work
  • Offering mobility aids

To get you back to work and functioning at your highest level, our physiotherapists will work closely with you, building a personal relationship, and focusing on all factors affecting your injury. We know this is a difficult time and we will work to help you feel better both physically and mentally.

Part of the physiotherapy process is in education. We can provide advice about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including exercise and nutrition. Being unable to work is a huge lifestyle change, and it’s important to keep good health during this transition in order for your body to heal quickly.

There are various types of physiotherapy that can be performed depending on the injury – massage therapy, enhancing circulation, acupuncture, promoting relaxation, and pain management, to name a few. With the right program, we know that you will be able to help you get back to work as soon as possible.

Work Hardening

We also perform work hardening to help you get back to your job after a work-related injury or accident. This focuses on simulated work activities to restore the physical capabilities required for your job using aggressive, goal-oriented techniques. It provides a transition between in-clinic care and a patient’s full return to work. Using tools and an environment similar to the work environment, we can help you build endurance and tolerance for a standard 8-hour work day.

The methods for each patient will differ depending on the type of work that they perform. We work with you to create fully customized plans to ensure that we can measure abilities accurately. We have a variety of equipment available to suit the needs of our patients.

Work hardening is often a necessary step in a physiotherapy program to get you back to work. You will be comfortable, prepared, and feel ready to take on your pre-injury tasks and job.
