OUR GOAL IS EARLY INTERVENTION FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH AFTER ILLNESS OR INJURY.
The team at Momentum4 value the importance of helping people achieve health and meaningful occupation (whether it be paid or unpaid) as soon as possible after injury and illness. Our targeted services aim to overcome the common difficulties experienced after injury including issues with pain, strength, endurance, and confidence. These services are provided by professionals with tertiary qualifications in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology, and rehabilitation counsellors. All of our practitioners are registered with the relevant authority (AHRPA, ESSA).
Work Based Rehabilitation
We have median level of 9 years of experience in work based rehabilitation per practitioner in our team. Our focus and strengths include helping people with complex physical and psychological injury and illness to overcome pain and psychological difficulties and improve their lives. We work with individuals, insurers (CTP and WorkCover), employers and government organisations (eg NIISQ) to help achieve important health outcomes. In particular, we work very hard at empowering the individuals we work with to ensure they can take the important steps to achieve health again. Our high level of experience means we help navigate what are often complex systems to find the way to health.
Typically, after injury, people can lose strength, endurance and confidence. Especially when the work role is very physical, injured individuals need the assistance of an ESSA accredited exercise physiologist via a structured physical conditioning and education program; mainly to avoid re-injury, increase confidence and eliminate fear. Our experienced and ESSA accredited exercise physiologist works closely with all parties to achieve a successful return to work.
“Having over 100 truck drivers on the road means staff health is critical to our operation. The team at Momentum4 have provided our staff with some very valuable work specific conditioning programs that allowed them to remain healthy and strong, recover more quickly from injury, build strength, endurance and confidence and overcome fear of return.

Return to Work Planning
Communication and consultation is super important for a successful return to work. We meet with all parties to do a thorough assessment, and then via a targeted selection of suitable duties, document the return to work plans in conjunction with the treating doctor. We help clarify the what, when and how steps to ensure all parties know what to do to assist a good and durable recovery.
