Work Rehabilitation Program
Injuries at work can occur suddenly, such as a slip or fall, or slowly over time with repetitive strain on an area of the body. If you are injured at work, make a claim through your employer, and the Workers Compensation Board will cover your initial assessment fee then decide if you are approved for further treatment. Be sure to make a claim through your employer within 5 days of becoming aware of your workplace injury. Workplace injuries are a common problem. We offer programs that provide workplace injury rehabilitation, work site assessments, and prevention ergonomic advice.
Injuries can happen frequently while on the job. Lifting heavy materials. Repetitive-type injuries like typing and using a mouse or answering phones. Most injuries that occur in the workplace are due to improper bio-mechanics and ergonomics and lead to musculoskeletal-type problems (injuries that involve muscles and joints). Examples could include a pulled muscle, a sprain, a pinched nerve and even a bulging disc. Whereas medicine can certainly help reduce pain and swelling, it usually treats the symptoms and not the cause. Chiropractic is a proven safe and highly effective form of treatment that has shown to return injured workers back to work sooner than conventional medicine.

Motor Accident Rehabilitation Program
It's tempting to minimize your own injuries because your car has sustained little or no damage. Documented research shows that damage done to passangers in an automobile accident is NOT directly related to the damage to the vehicle. In fact, often people can be injured considerably more than what you'd expect from a minor fender bender.
