Functional Rehabilitation Programs

Over the last decade we have seen firsthand the positive impacts of tailored functional rehabilitation programs for injured employees. We know that there is a direct correlation between the rehabilitation and treatment provided and a fast return to work. Bodycare’s proactive approach ensures that our Occupational Physiotherapists initiate contact with injured employees as soon as they are allowed back onsite after a clearance from a medical doctor.

The exercises and rehabilitation programs that we run with each employee are tailored to their specific role and focused on a functional resumption of their pre injury duties. Our Onsite Occupational Physiotherapists are often be seen out in the warehouse or around the plant engaging with the injured employee and running them through part-practice or modifications of their task to ensure that they are retraining the muscles and promoting the correct kinetic patterns to perform their job safely.

Meanwhile our physiotherapists are liaising and communicating with the injured employee’s GP as well as the site’s RTW, Safety and Operations teams to ensure that all key stakeholders are on the same page regarding the injured employee’s progress back to their pre-injury status.
