According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics’ report on employer-reported workplace injuries and illnesses in 2017, there were about 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry companies. This was nearly 45, 800 lesser compared to 2016 based on the estimates from the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses.
Aside from the hospitalization, treatment, physicians and medication, work-related injuries are a huge problem for everyone – both employer and employee but most especially the employee involved. Most of the time, injured workers may suffer some mobile and functional difficulties even after therapy and rehab. In this case, the doctor in charge would order what is termed as Work Hardening and Conditioning. This is an individualized, high-level program that involves intensive physical exercises and activities that simulate workplace tasks in order to help the patient adjust and recover swiftly to become fit for work once again.
Work Hardening and Conditioning is a massive challenge that takes a lot of effort for the recovering patient who is already under a large amount of stress. To make the process easier for everyone involved, a Medical Scheduling company like Direct Pay Provider Network is the best option for workers compensation health solutions.
