We are pleased to be serving clients as a part of the WorkSafeBC provider network. Our therapists provide mobile occupational therapy services to those who have been injured at work.
Areas of treatment:
- Physical injuries
- Brain injuries/cognitive issues
- Mental health / psychosocial concerns.
Recovery from a physical injury: Occupational therapists are crucial in assessing whether a worker is able to meet their job demands. They will do this in a number of ways including:
Worker evaluation: Occupational therapists can assess a worker’s physical and functional tolerances for their job demands. They can also utilize feedback from the worker’s physician, physiotherapist and kinesiologist.
Worksite visit: Occupational therapists are able to visit the workplace and examine first hand the tasks that a worker is required to complete. Information about accommodations, and ability to create a customized return to work plan for the worker can be explored. Occupational therapists may also recommend changes to a worker’s workspace, equipment adaptations or task modifications to ensure they are able to return to work safely.
Ergonomic workstation assessments: Occupational therapists can examine a worker’s posture, positioning and movements while performing their job demands to determine whether changes to the workstation, or worker positioning can be made to ensure a workstation is safe for a worker.
Return to work planning: Our therapists have established expertise in determining the appropriate length and accommodations that may be required when assisting a worker with returning to work. They will create a customized return-to-work plan in collaboration with the worker, employer and rehabilitation team.
