Recovery at Work

Sometimes taking time off work is a critical part of recovering from injury and illness; however we know that if a worker can recover at work, on modified or accommodated duties, they are more likely to recover faster. Studies show that the longer workers are off work, the lower the likelihood of them returning in any capacity.

 

Returning to work in some capacity is incredibly important for one’s physical and mental well-being. Absence through injury, illness or long-term medical conditions can present itself in many ways. Problems affecting the mental and physical well-being of a worker can seriously impact their ability to perform optimally in the workplace.

 

CopilOT takes a team approach to Return to Work. Our staff work with the employer, worker and other healthcare providers to establish a Return to Work plan focused on the worker's healthy and safe recovery from a variety of conditions including:

 

  • Musculoskeletal conditions causing back, neck or wrist pain
  • Chronic stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Sensory impairment, such as deafness or blindness
  • And much more!

We have the perfect solution to help workers in their recovery from injury and illness as they return to work.
