Physiotherapy for Work Related Injuries

To help you return to work as quickly as possible, our team of professional physical therapists at Spectrum Physiotherapy of Newmarket will thoroughly diagnose and assess your condition and then implement specific exercises and physical therapy techniques to speed up the recovery process. For example, you may be assigned certain exercises which simulate your workplace requirements. We can also identify the risks for any work-related musculoskeletal disorders and recommend modifications which may help you work productively and safely within your physical limits.

 

You may be required to undergo a functional capacity evaluation which helps analyze your ability to carry out certain common work-related tasks including pulling, pushing, carrying, lifting, kneeling, stooping, stair climbing, squatting, bending, overhead reaching, and crawling etc. We’ll be able to assess your functional abilities and how compatible they are with your specific job. Our therapists will help reduce further injuries by instructing you on the proper techniques for these physical tasks.

 

If you’re not quite 100 percent, you may be recommended to perform light duties or transitional work until you’re fully recovered and ready to return your regular duties. We work hand in hand with each patient to come up with a unique and individualized therapy program to help alleviate any pain and speed up the recovery process. You can always depend on Fit Physiotherapy for hands-on, personalized treatment. Some of the most common work-related injuries we treat include strains, sprains, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, contusions, dislocations, fractures, whiplash, herniated discs, soft tissue injuries, concussions and Hematoma.

 

The type of personal treatment program designed for you depends on the specific type of injury suffered. There are several different types of physiotherapy techniques to help in your recovery and rehabilitation such as deep-tissue massage, heat and cold, acupuncture, ultrasound, and TENS machines (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). You may also be given exercises to perform to help improve your strength, flexibility, agility, endurance, and stamina etc.

 

It’s important to remember that you should always report a workplace accident as soon as it happens in case you’re covered by medical insurance for treatments. Be sure to visit a doctor or other medical professional to have the condition fully diagnosed and assessed. At Spectrum Physiotherapy of Newmarket we have worked closely with numerous patients who have suffered work-related injuries over the years and are confident we can help you return to your daily activities as soon as possible
