Work-related injuries and conditions, such as lower back pain, musculoskeletal disorders and neck pain are among the leading causes of disability in Australia. These injuries can have a devastating impact on your job, family, mental health and lifestyle.
Through our extensive experience in work related injury rehabilitation, here at our Dee Why practice, we provide the most effective strategies for a safe return to pre-injury duties for injured workers.
Work related injury management is not only about treating the immediate pain, but identifying the cause of the injury, from sudden causes to low impact, but highly repetitive tasks.
Treating the immediate impairment and returning the patient to pre-injury duties without considering any post-injury rehabilitation will almost always result in recurrences. Therefore, we target the condition; diagnose the cause and following a customised strengthening program patients can return to work safely.
