Multidisciplinary Therapy for Injured Workers
Worker-focused treatments to get you back on the job
An injury often comes with feelings of fear and hopelessness, changing family relationships, financial and social life disruptions. However, through our personalized plans, many patients find relief when no other methods have worked.
Pacific Rehabilitation Centers helps workers improve quality of life by reducing or eliminating disability. We offer a multidisciplinary rehabilitation program that helps workers dealing with non-malignant chronic pain. Our program is designed to:
- Address successful return to work (RTW) planning
- Learn strategies to assist with mental health issues related to persistent pain
- Gain knowledge from health professionals who specialize in chronic pain management
As a interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation program provider that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), we meet rigorous guidelines for service and quality of care. We work with people who were injured on the job and are struggling with returning to work.
What is RTWPMP, aka SIMP?
Structured means you receive regular, consistent treatment. Our providers will customize a plan that fits your needs.
Intensive refers to receiving treatment daily. Our team works with you six hours per day, five days a week. Programs may last for up to four weeks.

WHO Is The Return-to-Work Pain Management Program For?
The Return-to-Work Pain Management program – also referred to as Structured, Intensive, Multidisciplinary Program (SIMP) – is for injured workers who have open worker’s compensation claims for injuries sustained while at work.
The Return-to-Work Pain Management Program is used predominantly for patients who suffer from:
- Chronic low back pain
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Lower limb pain
- Shoulder or upper limb pain
- Opioid use for chronic pain
Individuals who have medical or psychological conditions (comorbidities) that hinder functional recovery from chronic pain and prevent the patient from successfully returning to work should be referred for a RTWPMP, or SIMP.

Pacific Rehabilitation Centers’ program consists of a 20-day outpatient treatment which includes:
- Physical and Occupational Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Return-to-Work Pain Management can be offered to a patient in house in one of our clinics or through telehealth allowing patients living in rural areas to obtain the treatment they need.
