Our client-centred, multi-disciplinary care approach encourages clients to participate and succeed in their rehabilitation. The Back on Track team facilitates this process by ensuring:

- Evidence-based practice

- Assistance in reaching case resolution
The Back on Track program has been meeting the needs of our clients and their families, physicians and insurance companies since 1995. In January 1998, Back on Track was awarded a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board contract to assess and treat workers who have sustained work-related burns, amputations and complex trauma injuries. This endorsement of Back on Track has demonstrated its ability to deliver excellent cost-effective care that is responsive to clients and referring sources.
Our interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists are experienced in treating clients who have sustained traumatic injuries such as: burns, amputations, complex orthopedic, musculoskeletal, and mild to moderate acquired brain injuries. Our directly relevant experience allows us to set both realistic rehabilitation time lines and to comment on maximum medical recovery, and its influence on function.
Our team of experts:
- Occupational Therapists
- Psychologist / Neuropsychologist
- Massage Therapists
- Registered Nurse

Interdisciplinary treatment services
Treatment protocols and equipment are current and we continually evaluate our rehabilitation programs through best practice guidelines and goal-directed team rounds.
Monthly reports provide details on recovery in the areas of vocation, avocation, mobility, physical status, activities of daily living, psychosocial presentation and transportation. Clients are also enrolled in the Road to Recovery Group, a nine week psycho-educational group to educate clients process and resolve the issues resulting from a debilitating injury. Access to the heated hydrotherapy pool is also available.
- Single discipline treatment
Should a client require only single discipline treatment, this is what will be recommended and provided. The same up-to-date equipment and treatment protocols will be used and rehabilitation will focus on return to pre-accident level of function.
- Physical conditioning/work hardening program
As a client's abilities and independence improve, this program is necessary to prepare for return to work and to increase physical and cardiovascular fitness. Physical demands of the client's job and homemaking requirements are simulated in therapy to allow the client to return to these activities gradually and safely.
- Burn, amputee and physiatry clinics
On a regular basis, the client, the team and the specialty physician meet to discuss the client's progress and how we can facilitate further improvements. Issues discussed include current level of recovery, content of the rehabilitation program, client's level of participation, upcoming surgical interventions, and plans for return to work and full community reintegration.
