It is imperative to help an injured worker regain full workplace productivity and maximize functional capacities so that the worker returns to a normal activity level. Our goal at Maya Physical Therapy is to design an injured worker rehabilitation program with the shortest time frame, right from the onset of injury to a full return to the workplace. Efficient outcomes are achieved when there is an immediate intervention following an injury.
For injured workers, an early physical therapy intervention immensely helps with early mobility, reducing pain and swelling, and reinforcing a healthy attitude to an early return to work. Many injured workers who receive timely physical therapy care return to their jobs without additional rehabilitation services. Modified work arrangements can also be very productive in maintaining the injured worker’s attitude.
