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 none or mild identifiable yellow flags. The Rapid Re-Employment Program serves as an intense short term rehabilitation program that is usually 4-weeks in duration.
The Rapid Re-Employment Program is defined as a work focused, intensive, goal-oriented program specifically designed to restore an individual’s neuro-musculo-skeletal (strength, endurance, movement, flexibility and motor control) and cardiopulmonary functions. The objective of the program is to restore the claimant’s physical capacity and function so that they can return to work.
Some claimants in the Rapid Re-Employment Program have returned to work part time and on modified duties. They would be suitable for this program as a "top up" to assist them in a return to full time work with no restriction. This program would compliment there current work schedule.
In conjunction with the above this program involves the incorporation of the CFT method (Cognitive Functional Therapy approach). This approach targets the beliefs, fears and associated behaviors (both movement and lifestyle) of each individual. It leads the patient to be mindful that pain is not a reflection of damage, but rather sensitized structure that is fueled by hypervigilance and negative beliefs, fears, lost hope, anxiety and avoidance, linked to maladaptive (provocative) movement and lifestyle behaviors.
The program length is 4-weeks Monday through Friday, starting at 2 hours and progressing and will depend on there work schedule.
Please refer to our educational manual below for a more detailed descriptive of our programming.
