Close Icon provide a specialised Return to Work programme which is designed to assist individuals in returning to work, staying at work, and increasing their duties at work. Many of the individuals who utilise the Return to Work service have had a period of absence following an accident or injury. allow these individuals to return to work in confidence.

The Return to Work programme is focussed on the restoration of function whilst reducing pain. Treatment is carefully structured around work tasks and focussed on self-management. All sessions are one to one with a physiotherapist with the long term goals focussed on overcoming physical and psychological barriers to return to work.

Initial Assessment

The first session with the physiotherapist is the assessment. The assessment covers a full subjective and objective assessment. As part of the objective assessment a functional capacity score (FCA) is calculated. This score reflects the current ability and limitations. This score is an objective measure of the progress that an individual is making and is recalculated at future sessions. The FCA score allows the physiotherapist, the patient, and the employer to monitor progress.

At the end of the assessment short and long term goals are discussed and agreed with the patient.

Treatment perform treatment sessions in a variety of settings. The location of treatment is ordinarily dependent on the ability of the patient, the nature and severity of the injury, previous activity levels and the tasks required of them at work.

We perform treatment sessions:
  • At home
  • In clinic
  • At work
  • In the gym
The Return to Work programme last for approximately 8 -12 weeks. Treatment provided is evidence based and formulated to specifically target the needs of the patient. Throughout treatment our aim is to provide patients with motivation and empower the patient with independence and a sense of responsibility to their own rehabilitation and future health.

Return to Work physiotherapy treatment sessions regularly consists of:

Return to Work Report

As a return to work approaches an assessment is performed to generate a further FCA score and a return to work report is formulated. This assessment may take place in the workplace to allow suitable and appropriate work tasks to be identified by the physiotherapist and the employer. The report contains a return to work plan which details the scale on which the patient can return to work, duties to be performed, any graduated increase in duties, any restrictions on duties, timescales, equipment required and any further medical intervention required. The return to work report is made available to the patient and the employer.

Treatment can continue once the patient has returned to work to allow a return to full duties as soon as possible.
