Physical Reconditioning Programs
Greg has always worked in a multi-disciplinary teams where my role as an Exercise Physiologist is to guide people toward safely improving their overall cardio respiratory fitness, muscular strength/endurance, flexibility, posture and gait.
All of these factors have an immense influence on a workers susceptibility to injury and illness, and the principles of progressive resistance training are essential considerations for getting workers back to full function and pre injury duties.
Graduated Return to Work
Greg has set up and managed a large rehab centre entirely devoted to rehabilitation of long term workers compensation claimants so he is well used to “chronic pain” cases and associated demands of case management. More importantly he has been a “practicing” clinician for over 30 years so he tends to get “buy in” and compliance from ageing and hard hat workers in particular.
