Read the February 2022 edition of Rehabilitation and Return to Work e-bulletin.
Workers living with chronic pain may feel isolated and misunderstood so it’s important their psychosocial and physical needs are considered in their treatment plan. Research shows taking a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to persistent pain will provide the most successful outcomes for workers in terms of increased function. Open and regular communication between all parties is also key to setting and achieving recovery goals.
It’s common for injured workers to struggle while adjusting to lifestyle changes caused by an injury. They may feel worthless, misunderstood, lonely and frustrated as they adapt to changes in their ability to perform their usual roles at work and home. Workers may also feel frustrated by the speed or progress of their recovery.
