Early Engagement: What It Means and Why It Matters

We took a look at some data sets from PT claims. The data clearly shows that injured workers who receive treatment as quickly as possible following an injury require fewer PT visits to achieve successful outcomes.

White Paper Summary

The longer an injured worker is out of work, the chances of returning decline. A Department of Labor report showed the likelihood of an injured worker returning to work after a six-month absence is only 50 percent¹. That number drops to 25 percent following a one-year absence². When conservative treatment is indicated, not only can needless prolonged absences be avoided, but successful return-to-work outcomes, reductions in surgery and exceptional quality of care can be achieved when treatment begins as close to the injury date as possible.
