RETURN TO WORK ASSESSMENT
Available in Solihull and Birmingham
Are you a business with employees absent from work with injuries or following surgery?
Let Nordic Rehab help you aid them back to work - safely and efficiently.
Our experienced and specialist physiotherapists are - if we may say so ourselves- very good at assessing conditions and dealing with the anxiety people may have about their conditions and an impending return to work.
Sometimes people will be off work for weeks before they are able to be seen by a physiotherapist for their injury. Often people are worried that coming back to work too soon will make their problems worse. In combination, this is an excellent method of creating an environment of long term sickness absence!
As specialists in this field, we can quickly assess the client and start the process of helping them back to work safely, saving time and worry for all parties involved. If done correctly returning to sensible functional activity will speed up recovery and helps confidence and self esteem.

We help people see their progress positively and actively.
We will identify what they are able to do.
We will work with the workplace to safely aid them back to work.
FACTORS AFFECTING RETURN TO WORK
People’s belief systems are quite natural and something that develops over the course of the life. The primary personal limitations to getting back to work early tend to relate to these systems:
Some common reasons for apprehension and a delayed return to work are:
They are yet to be 100% better and are worried that they will get worse if returning to work.
They are worried that they will not have much support when they return to work.
They may have friends and family who advise them about the danger of returning to work too soon.
There may be other health professionals - who do not necessarily understand the person's job and the opportunity of the workplace- that may have advised them not to return to work.
We believe we are pretty good at understanding the person, as well as the job and organisational factors. Together with an excellent understanding of anatomy and physiology, you have the right people to help you remove the obstacles for aiding people back to work following musculoskeletal sickness absence.
