Abstract

A protocol for work resumption after occupational osteoarticular injury and subsequent rehabilitation is presented: 97 patients (68 males and 29 females; mean age 42 years) were evaluated by the physiatrist and the occupational physician, providing indications based on their functional capabilities and task features. Up to date, 38 underwent follow-up at 6 months: 30 had returned to work (3 after changing tasks, 4 part-time). The mean time for work resumption was 15 days for the 26 subjects who resumed working completely, 1 month for the 4 who resumed partially. These data are encouraging, and highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary rehabilitative approach to facilitate return to work after occupational injuries.
