Return to Work Programs
At Optimum Health & Performance, we are committed to returning you to work as soon as possible. Ideally, we attempt to have you recovering AT work, to help you keep in a good routine and speed up your recovery. Recent studies have shown that the more time off an injured worker has, the less likely they will be to return to that job, so we assess your capabilities regularly to ensure you are undertaking suitable duties at work and not risking further harm.
With over 30 years of experience in rehabilitation, we use the appropriate combination of hands on therapy and exercise-based management depending on the stage of your rehabilitation to achieve your goals. These goals may be work-based (eg. lifting 20kg in 6 weeks’ time) or lifestyle-based (eg. surfing/paddle boarding in a month’s time.) Our therapists work very closely with you to keep our treatments functional (specific to your job/life) and goal oriented.
If you are injured under the Worker’s Compensation scheme, our therapists maintain regular contact with your GP and your case manager to ensure smooth transition back to work. If you are injured at work, make sure you nominate Optimum Health & Performance to your doctor and call us to make an appointment ASAP. You will likely be seen that day or the next – after all, early intervention is the keystone to good recovery.
