The job tasks are reviewed and a structured plan is developed to maximize productivity gradually. Recommendations from our occupational therapists could include:
- Graduated schedules of work hours and job responsibilities
- Recommend and implement the necessary tools and equipment required to safely complete the job tasks
- Teach how to self-manage ongoing pain-symptoms together with participating in job tasks without workplace disruption
- Regular follow up with the individual and communication with all involved parties. This includes but is not limited to the employer, physician, physiotherapist, chiropractor, psychologist, case manager, and other community health care providers.
