Therapeutic exercise programmes
for compensable injuries and illnesses
Guardian Exercise Rehabilitation services include Therapeutic Exercise Programmes for Workers Compensation, Life and CTP Insurance Claims. The fundamental aim of our programmes is to achieve empowerment through exercise. We look to support optimised function and facilitate healthy re-engagement in work, as well as everyday and recreational pursuits via bespoke exercise programming and by setting collaborative goals based on meaningful activities. We blend holistic biopsychosocial rehabilitation principles with an understanding and appreciation for recover at work processes. We see the big picture, and understand that rehabilitation should support restored capacities for all aspects of life.
Our programmes aim to support the earliest safe, appropriate and sustainable return-to-work whilst also educating on self-guided exercise – promoting self-efficacy as well as durability with outcomes. With an understanding of the workplace and job-demands, our rehabilitative exercise programmes are tailored and function-specific; however, also support wholebeing health and work towards self-identified, meaningful goals

This assessment is also useful in examining a worker who is on alternative or restricted duties, and it may also include review and recommendations regarding the work environment. A report will then be provided with assessment findings and recommendations. The Worksite Assessment may be completed as part of a Rehabilitation Program, or as a one-off service for a compensable claim
