Enjoying the view from the sidelines?
Probably not much. After a work injury, it’s easy to feel disconnected, like someone pushed pause on your job… and your life.
Our workers’ comp care team breaks through all the uncertainty with a proven, medically managed process that puts you first. Your livelihood. Your safety. Your health. Here, you get the same high-level, rehabilitative care that athletes receive… so you can get back to a team that needs you.
Who makes the decisions about my care?
You do. For any on-the-job injury, your own care decisions are completely yours. You’re not limited to your company’s health plan.

You may be wondering…
How long will my recovery take?
Your recovery plan begins as soon as you’re seen by the workers’ comp care team. We provide direction that’s updated as you progress through assessment and treatment. We let you know when you can safely return to work.
What work can I do and when?A functional capacity evaluation determines what your limits are at each stage of recovery. We don’t say “light duty” and leave it at that—we’ll share a personalized plan for you.
What’s going on at work when I’m not there?Of course, you’re anxious about missing work and letting your team down. We keep you and your employer updated so tasks can be reassigned only as needed, minimizing disruption for everyone.
Will I ever get back to feeling like myself?The top mission of our workers’ comp care team is to restore your function to 100%. Your treatment plan is developed with that goal.
