Occupational rehabilitation focuses on helping return injured workers back to work safely and with maximal functional performance while performing their job. Rehabilitation is aimed at correcting improper work habits which are the cause of repeated work related accidents and injury.
We achieve this by forming a specific sequence of functional activities mimicking the injured worker’s duties. Many times poor postural structure and movement can cause decreased muscle flexibility and weakness, resulting in a higher number of workplace accidents.
Our rehabilitative approach involves not only teaching the patient about performing their work duties safely but focuses on the importance of proper body mechanics and ergonomics while performing daily job duties.
