Managing an Injured Rotator Cuff: From Therapy to Surgery and Everything in Between
In this INJURY INSIGHT webinar, Dr. Weitzel reviews and shows different types of rotator cuff injuries and the surgical techniques used to treat various rotator cuff injuries ranging from repair to replacement and newer techniques. Video images are shown.
He also reviews post-operative rehabilitation and timelines to return to work including Care Pathway treatment plan examples including the anticipated time to return to work with restrictions and full duty.
Participating claims professionals, employers, and stakeholders learned more about generally prescribed treatment and recovery processes, how to identify and overcome potential obstacles to implementing the treatment plan, and had the unique opportunity to engage and ask practicing specialists questions about injuries and the recovery process.
INJURY INSIGHT is a 4-part webinar series designed to educate and inform adjusters, employers, and industry stakeholders on the rehabilitation and recovery process of injuries, illnesses, and diagnoses, both common and uncommon, within workers’ compensation.
An employee-centric understanding of the nature of an individual’s injury or illness and factors that impact rehabilitation improves communications and outcomes for all stakeholders and most importantly the injured worker. Research has shown that organizations adopting an advocacy-based claims model are experiencing lower litigation rates, expedited return to work outcomes, and happier and more productive employees.
