When professional athletes are injured on the field, their goal is to get back in the game—and to work—as soon as it’s safe for them to do it. And that’s how Concentra treats injured employees, whom we think of as “industrial athletes.”
We want you to be able to get back to work as soon as it’s safe. This means that instead of recommending leave, we may recommend that you engage in some type of modified duty. Our physicians and physical therapists will work with you throughout your recovery to make sure that everything is going well. We will also talk with you about any concerns you may have about going back to work or getting injured again. Our goal is to provide the information and guidance you need to live a healthier, safer working life.
