Rehabilitation Solutions for Employers, Office Employees and Workers

Services for Office Employees and Workers

A gradual return to work can be effective therapy in itself. We accompany the worker and then use progressively more difficult tasks from his regular work to help him regain his abilities, manage his residual symptoms and lessen his fears, for example.

For the following problems:

  • Back, neck, shoulder pain, tendonitis

  • Hand trauma

  • Major depression

  • Post-traumatic stress

  • Anxiety

  • Head trauma

  • Cancer

  • Etc.

We propose these solutions:

  • Development of capacities (physical and/or cognitive) in order to promote a safe and sustainable return to work

  • Evaluation of the work capacities allowing to objectively know what the employee or worker can do

  • Evaluation of the capacities in relation to cognitive functions

  • A temporary assignment that can be used as effective therapy; we accompany the individual and use the tasks of his regular work to help him regain his abilities, manage his residual symptoms and reduce his fears, for example

  • Workplace assessment by an occupational therapist or ergonomist to give advice on improving posture and comfort at work and avoiding injuries or relapses

  • Orthotics: for hand injuries and to relieve structures or help them regain their proper position

  • Decrease in muscle tension

  • Pain reduction in physiotherapy

  • Increase in strength and mobility

  • Teaching of good postures

  • Intervention to assist in chronic pain management

  • Intervention by a psychologist and/or occupational therapist for people with a mental health condition

  • Assessment of physical condition by a kinesiologist and development of a personalized fitness program

We have a team that has the expertise needed for home support cases. Occasionally an accident or illness prevents the return to work in such a way that return to work is not feasible in the short, medium and sometimes long term. Our team has the expertise to facilitate the accomplishment of everyday activities through the adaptation of the home and the recommendation of technical aids to assist in daily life, as well as knowledge of the public home support network.


The home support service is available in all our clinics.

Our home support services include:

  • Home adaptation privately or through the PAD program: major and minor needs

  • Assessment of personal assistance needs

  • Follow up on equipment / technical aids, wheelchair, mattress, scooter, etc.

  • Management of wounds and positioning

  • Assessment of the ability to drive a road vehicle

  • Assessment of specific functional capacities: assessment of capacities within the framework of an expertise mandate to decide on the capacities to carry out personal care activities and domestic activities

  • Serving as an expert in case of challenge regarding the amount awarded for personal assistance needs

Our team has solid expertise in mental health, psychosocial factors and chronic pain. We are known for handling complex cases, among others. We are participating in several rehabilitation research projects as a means to remain always at the forefront of knowledge and to back our interventions up by scientific literature.
