Along with the traditional modalities and exercises to speed the healing process of injured individuals, we understand the specific demands placed on workers and ensuring that they can safely return to performing each job task. This may entail specialized work simulation or performing duties in less than ideal postures.
Rehabilitating an individual who is required to perform office duties is much different than an individual who needs to be able to load trucks with 100 lb boxes or perform repetitive assembly line duties.
When dealing with the many hurdles of today’s BWC system, communication between the employer, employee, physician, case managers, and rehab specialists is essential for an efficient and productive return to work.
Everyone who has dealt with the BWC system ends up calling it “a game”, meaning that the rules are complex, and there are lots of twists and turns along the way.
However, we think of it more as a “symphony”. Everyone has to work together playing their part fully and in concert with other members to achieve a grand result. If there is a breakdown in communication between the individuals, there are delays which cost large amounts of time, money, and frustration for all parties.
We strive to play our part by providing quick response to our patients needs by:
1. Quickly getting them into rehab, normally within 2 days.
2. Efficiently managing the case with legible, typed case notes.
3. Prompt response to requests for information
4. Efficient communication with the physician of record, and case managers.
