Work Related Injuries

A work related injury is an injury or illness caused, contributed or significantly aggravated by events or exposures in the work environment. Work related injuries occur on the job and as a direct result of the tasks directed or given to the specific job.

Our physiotherapy often includes exercises that are similar to the patient’s actual job so they learn to adapt their mobility to familiar activities. There are various types of physiotherapy that can be performed depending on the injury – massage therapy, enhancing circulation, acupuncture, promoting relaxation, and pain management, to name a few. With the right program, we know that you will be able to help you get back to work as soon as possible. The methods for each patient will differ depending on the type of work that they perform. Part of the physiotherapy process is in education to prevent recurrence.
