Virtual Return-to-Work Pain Management Program

Restore Function. Remove Barriers. Return to Work.

Our Return-to-Work Pain Management Program is designed to help remove barriers and help patients return to work.

As of June 2020, we have been approved by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries to add our signature Return-to-Work Pain Management to our list of telehealth services. This virtual, interdisciplinary program provides classes taught by our physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists and vocational counselors.

How It Works

Step 1: Evaluation

Duration: 1 day

Our interdisciplinary team has years of experience evaluating chronic pain patients. The evaluation process is simple:

  1. Our physician will take a medical history, and perform a virtual physical exam.
  2. Our psychologist will use testing and an interview to determine family support, motivation to complete the Program and barriers to return to work.
  3. Our vocational counselor will determine the worker’s ability to return to work and in what capacity.

Evaluations can be complete either in our clinics or through our virtual program.

Step 2: Treatment

Duration: 20 days

Our Return-to-Work Pain Management Program is virtually the same as it is in our clinic. 20 days, Monday through Friday, five to six sessions per day. Patients receive graded exercise, individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy, education, skill development, ongoing assessment, and a discharge care plan and report. We have ongoing communication with physicians and vocational counselors.

Step 3: Follow-Up

Duration: 6 months

Follow-up occurs during the six months after completion of the Return-to-Work Pain Management Program. Non face-to-face follow-up (on the phone) includes assessment and evaluation of pain and function, reviewing and reinforcing goals, community care coordination and holding case conferences.

Getting Started

To get started, we simply need a referral from the patient’s physician. If you have any questions regarding the program or referral process, please feel free to call us at 877-302-7132 or contact us online.
