The purpose of vocational rehabilitation services is to help injured workers return to work either with their original employer or new employer after a period of work absence due to their job injury. In most instances injured workers experience permanent physical limitations that need to be considered when trying to return to work. Our case managers utilize all available resources to help injured workers to overcome their physical limitations. The examples of services that are frequently used are physical therapy, training, counseling, job placement advocacy, work site accommodations, and many others.
