We want to help you recover from your injury and get you back to work as soon as possible.

Nobody wants to be injured or ill to the extent that they can’t perform normal life activities.

When this situation does occur, sometimes help is needed to support and enable a successful return to normal or stay at work programme.

When an employee is injured, everyone’s first concern is ensuring they get immediate treatment – but a very close second is ensuring the best recovery and rehabilitation. By working alongside the injured or ill person with a skilled Physiotherapist and multidisciplinary team, there is a greater success rate for a quick and safe return to normal life activities, including work.  

The return to work program involves a proactive and collaborative approach in working with the person, their family, and employer, determining opportunities for safe and productive work activities as soon as it is medically possible. A robust rehabilitation plan will maximise medical improvement and minimize the impact of injuries or disabilities.

A return to work program is a simple process that provides a clear timeline and appropriate expertise to ensure all parties are on the same track toward a healthy recovery. Depending on your injury some of these program's can be funded by ACC. At Foundation we have Physiotherapists skilled in providing the appropriate education and the gym-based conditioning required for a return to work program. With access to Aspire Health and Sports Gym, The Athlete Factory, Pilates in Papamoa and various gym circuits, we can cater to your exercise preference and help you to return to work stronger than before.
