In this video, Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty from Health Sciences Centre explains that a gradual return to work with modified duties is good for injury recovery.
(Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty, Health Sciences Centre): Work can be therapy. Those of you who play sports understand that rest isn’t always best. When you have an injury in the sports event, you don’t just stop doing the sport. What you do is you go for your therapy and then you reintroduce yourself into a sport. Either wearing a no-contact jersey, doing less time on the ice, and work is very much the same way. You need to start off in graduated work that’s safer, that is more geared to what your injury will allow you to do, to allow you to progress towards your full duties.
