On-site Modified Duty
Studies have shown that the longer an injured employee is on disability, the slower they are to return to work. At Irwindale Industrial Clinic we recognize that while some injuries require findings of total disability, many cases are better managed at our clinic through our On-Site Modified Duty Programs.
This program requires qualified injured workers to attend half day or full day sessions at our clinic. The program includes educational videos, fitness training, and, in some cases, physical rehabilitation. Patients receive instruction in health and safety protocols, as well as a demonstration of home rehabilitation exercises and equipment use. Employers benefit by avoiding the negative impact of lost time injuries.
While on modified duty, your employee is encouraged to prepare for their return to work in a supportive and well-supervised environment.
