A comprehensive evaluation to assess an individual’s function with relevance to specific job demands – either for pre-employment purposes or as part of ongoing injury-review and/or return to work management. Applying standardised tests in combination with astute observation and clinical-acumen, we deliver all-inclusive reporting with summarised key recommendations.
In line with the foundational principle that early intervention provides optimised long-term clinical outcomes, we provide customised programs to assist in managing workplace musculoskeletal injuries. Our programs endeavour to minimise the volume and/or duration of potential Workers’ Compensation claims and are heavily-oriented towards early-stage education, self-management promotion and global health awareness.
Our programs aim to support the earliest safe, appropriate and sustainable return-to-work whilst also educating on self-guidance – promoting self-efficacy as well as durability with outcomes. With an understanding of the workplace and job-demands, our rehabilitation programs are tailored and function-specific; however, also support wholebeing health and work towards self-identified, meaningful goals.
The most accepted frameworks for treating injuries post motor vehicle accident indicate that there are three first-line treatments with high-level supporting evidence – reassure and stay active; return to usual activities; and rehabilitation via physical activity. Our programs are thus built on these overarching principles and look to restore our clients to pre-accident capacities and beyond, promoting high-level function and optimising quality-of-life through simple but effective exercise-based, educative programming.
