SquareONE Rehabilitation utilizes experienced health care practitioners that share a common goal: to facilitate the restoration and well-being of the claimant. All programs and services offered at SquareONE Rehabilitation are evidence-based, consistent with the empirical literature in this area and are designed to achieve a return to pre-injury employment at discharge along with improvement in an individuals activities of daily living. All reports will clearly describe the claimant’s current functional status, in a manner designed to assist in case resolution.
It is the philosophy of SquareONE Rehabilitation that individuals with persistent pain problems can learn to improve the quality of their lives and increase productive functioning. Claimants are provided a supportive atmosphere, which encourages self-responsibility, active participation, and the development of positive coping skills. The treatment team emphasizes "ability", not "disability".
Treatment is based on a "Team" approach.
Staff at SquareONE rehabilitation demonstrate and promote the value of allowing individuals the opportunity to have input in their own individualized treatment program. By doing this we are helping the claimant become more responsible for there own health and expediting their recovery.
The programs are structured to meet the individual needs of the claimants, consider their expectations, and foster maximum participation in their programs. Through self-management, a claimant improves their functional ability and decreases their focus on their disability. By applying the rehabilitation techniques learned in their individualized program, claimants are able to achieve maximum medical improvement.
Exercise, Education and Encouragement – these are the three components that form the basis of every program offered at SquareONE Rehabilitation. We believe that our success is based on integrating all three components in an active patient care model. At SquareONE Rehabilitation individualization of the programs enhances return to function at a faster rate.
Coaching strategies are utilized to assist the claimant in progressing through appropriate, mutually chosen exercises, which promote self-management and self-control. Claimants are taught that Active Care means shared responsibility and increased activity!.
SQUAREONE REHABILITATION: A REHABILITATION MODEL THAT WORKS
Although the majority of claimants return to their pre-injury employment without much active intervention a significant number of injured individuals present with a very low functional capability due to pain related problems. These claimants are in need of a more structured rehabilitation program. At SquareONE Rehabilitation we have developed comprehensive programs that provide gradual introduction to functional activity both at work and at home, address problems related to coping with pain in order to assist individuals along the path towards improved productivity, an improved quality of life, and return to the work force.
These are time-limited and goal-oriented active progressive exercise programs that is unidisciplinary, meaning it is administered by a physiotherapist to the client on a one to one basis. The purpose is to facilitate an early return to work and/or activities of daily living.
These are for claimants who are in the post-acute phase of there injury and are very close to meeting there occupational job demands with negligible or mild identifiable yellow flags. The Rapid Re-Employment Program is an interdisciplinary program that serves as an intense short term rehabilitation program that is usually 4-weeks in duration.
The Work Hardening Program is a interdisciplinary program that consist of a Team Physician, Physiotherapist and Chiropractor. The program is highly structured, goal-oriented, individually designed to return the person to work. Work Hardening programs use real or simulated work activities designed to restore physical, behavioural, and vocational functions.
The focus of treatment is on the management of pain through a change in lifestyle characterized by: a return to work; regular appropriate exercise; use of stress management skills; appropriate use of medication; improved awareness and acceptance of the difference between hurt vs. harm, and discontinuing the use of avoidance of activity and inactivity as pain management strategies.
Persons who consider themselves totally disabled from participating in active living and from returning to the workforce face significant barriers due to social, economic, medical and functional restrictions.
