Where possible, we will include the cost of your treatment in your compensation claim. We’ve put together a very general overview of the types of rehabilitation past clients have required.
Rehab is categorized as ‘adaptive’ and ‘restorative’. It may be physical; physiotherapy or occupational therapy or psychological: clinical or neurological.
Adaptive rehab assists a victim in a post trauma phase, for example an immediate needs assessment if someone is discharged home from hospital with impaired physical functioning or mobility after a fractured limb. Restorative rehab builds towards regaining pre-trauma levels of functioning.
Physiotherapy is vital to regaining function after trauma and hastens return to work, scooter riding and the normality of pre injury life. Occupational therapy assists with mental and physical strategies to overcome temporary or physical disabilities, temporary or longer term.
Superimposed over these or as a stand alone is psychological therapy designed to assist the victim overcome the obstacles and barriers in returning to a former activity or occupation. Each case requires prompt individual assessment to identify the symptoms (post traumatic stress disorder, post concessional syndrome or a depressive disorder for example) and factor in the appropriate remedial treatment. Often it’s the case that the consequent physical impairment which a victim experiences triggers a psychological reaction either independently of or connected with the original experience.
It is common in any injury claim to require physiotherapy treatment. We can arrange this for you at a location convenient to you.
