Can you optimize your experience with vocational rehabilitation?

After having been the victim of an accident at work, you are probably working with your employer in Florida to determine your eligibility for receiving workers’ compensation benefits. One of the key aspects of recovering from your injury will involve vocational rehabilitation to help you regain the strength and capacity you need to eventually return to your responsibilities at your job. 

Inconsistency with your rehabilitation or postponing its implementation until you have time or feel prepared for it can only be a disservice and actually prolong your recovery. As such, it is important that you begin incorporating it into your treatment plan right away. Depending on the severity of your injury, your medical provider will give you exercises that you can do to expedite your recovery. These are often used in conjunction with a professional rehabilitation facility where you will receive one-on-one guidance through your situation. 

According to rehabselect.net, one of the purposes of vocational rehabilitation is to allow both yourself and your employer to save on valuable resources. For your employer, a customized rehabilitation plan for you may mean less use of workers’ compensation benefits as you are able to return to work faster. For you, it allows you to expedite your recovery so you can resume your responsibilities at the earliest possible date and be able to start collecting your wages again. Vocational rehabilitation can include wound care, re-conditioning, pain management and occupational therapy among other things.
