Return to Work Pain Free and Stronger than Ever
At SIS, we understand the impact that an injury can have on your physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as your ability to work. That’s why we offer a comprehensive Injury Workers Rehabilitation Program designed to support injured workers on their journey to recovery and return to work.
Our program includes a range of rehabilitation programs tailored to meet everyone’s needs. Our services include mobility, pain management, functional strength, and return to work strategies. We also offer specialised programs to address specific injuries, such as back and neck injuries, upper and lower limb injuries, and repetitive strain injuries.
All team members are SIRA accredited and we work with all insurance and rehabilitation consultants to create a specialised plan to get you back to work.

I couldn’t recommend Matisse enough! Took the time to listen to every facet of my medical history and was able to make me understand what was happening and how it can be improved. Her kind nature and enthusiasm about helping people makes sessions incredibly fun and personalised. I leave my sessions feeling accomplished and confident in myself! The facilities and vibe are exactly what I have been wanting and with Matisse’s expertise I am excited to see the improvements in my overall health as well as my specific medical needs.
Matisse impresses me with the care and professional approach to my personal aims and objectives and over a period of sessions she devised a suitable programme for me. I particularly enjoy her warm smile, friendly demeanour and positivity. Whilst some of the sessions are hard work her constant encouragement makes it all worthwhile. The excellent gym equipment and friendly environment is a further encouragement for me.

Health and sport has always been an integral part of my life and being an exercise physiologist allowed me to bring passion into my career. Being an elite athlete allowed me to become an athletics coach for the Special Olympics which cultivated my passion to help other people improve their movement through exercise. From there I completed a degree in Exercise Physiology (Honours) which allowed me to gain experience in many opportunities.
Exercise Physiologist Approval
Approval for an initial consultation from the insurance agency is needed before we book an appointment.
We have an informal chat with you at our facility where we discuss the workplace accident, your work duties, the nature of injury and the functional goals.
AHRR Approval for Ongoing Sessions
We will then fill out a AHRR form with you to be sent to the insurance company that details your rehabilitation plan to get you back to work pre-injury capacity.
How long your rehabilitation plan is and the number of sessions depends on the nature of the injury, the Exercise Physiologist’s input and the number of sessions approved. Each AHRR request has eight sessions.
The first thing that must be done when a worker is injured is to seek medical attention and report the injury to their employer.
Rehabilitation services may include physiotherapy, mobility training, strength exercise programs, pain management, hydrotherapy, hand therapy and assessment testing.
Progress will be monitored through regular assessments and evaluations by the rehabilitation team. These may include functional tests, range of motion measurements, and strength assessments that will be included in the AHRR requests and reports.
Depending on the severity of the injury, it may be possible to continue working while undergoing rehabilitation. The rehabilitation team will work with the individual the nominated doctor, the claim case manager and employer to determine the best approach to managing work responsibilities while undergoing treatment.
