Workplace rehabilitation

Getting back to work is an important step in recovering from a work-related injury and means a worker can return to a normal life, often reducing the financial and emotional impact on them and their family.

Research tells us that an early return to work and activity helps prevent long-term disability and improves the likelihood of the person continuing to work once they’ve returned.

Benefits of rehabilitation

There are benefits for early return to work for employers too; employer participation in rehabilitation can:

We can work with employers, employees, ACC, physiotherapists and doctors to ensure a safe and effective return to work for employees.
