The Work We Do Every Day at NWRTW

Northwest Return to Work (NWRTW) is a unique facility that offers a wide range of treatments specifically for injured workers. The work we do every day at NWRTW is all about helping injured workers get back to their lives. Our rehabilitation specialists and psychologists use their research and unique training to help individuals who may be struggling in their daily lives due to physical disabilities, psychological trauma, chronic pain, or brain injury.

We’re here to guide you through every aspect of the work injury process. We help stabilize your injury with specific exercises to help you get stronger. We help you practice job skills specific to your occupation. We teach you how to manage chronic pain or manage the symptoms of a brain injury.

However, there are some aspects to a work injury that go beyond the physical difficulties. At NWRTW we help injured workers and their families navigate all these struggles. Such as coping with family and friends. It may be challenging for loved ones to understand what you’re going through, leading to misunderstandings and, in some cases, strained relationships. Severe injuries may require ongoing assistance from caregivers, leading to a loss of independence. This dependence on others can be emotionally challenging and impact your self-esteem.

Some injuries might lead to long-term health problems, requiring continuous medical care, medications, and therapies. Managing these issues can be both physically and emotionally draining. Work injuries, especially those leading to disabilities, can limit your ability to pursue certain career paths or educational opportunities, affecting your long-term goals and aspirations.

Navigating workers’ compensation claims, insurance paperwork, and legal processes can be complex and stressful. Disputes with employers or insurance companies can further complicate the situation.

At NWRTW we help clients with every aspect of the work injury journey. The Structured Intensive Multidisciplinary Pain Program (SIMP) at NWRTW helps clients develop self-awareness and find strategies to improve their psychological well-being. We do this by helping them learn effective self-management techniques and is available to any injured worker who has experienced chronic pain and is experiencing that pain as a barrier to returning to work and life.

It’s important to seek support from medical professionals, counselors, support groups, and legal experts if you’re dealing with the complications of a work-related injury. They can provide valuable assistance and guidance to help you cope with the challenges and make informed decisions about your future.
