Workers Compensation & MVA
Have you been injured at work? If you are on the road to recovery following an injury at work or many patients need intensive strengthening and conditioning including hydrotherapy and gym-based programs. Our Exercise Physiologists will travel to locations convenient to you. Contact us with your details and we will organise the rest.
Our team at CorpFit will organise an assessment and recommend a rehabilitation program to suit your needs. They will communicate directly with the insurance company and your treating doctor to seek approval.
How it works
A dedicated exercise plan assists our clients in returning to good health.
All exercise programs are custom designed to meet the individual’s specific rehabilitation needs. This is determined by an initial assessment, which identifies the client’s injury status and creates a clear benchmark of their physical abilities.
Our skilled team of Exercise Physiologists establish the most effective rehabilitation options available to you, to speed up the healing process.
Accredited Exercise Physiologists specialise in clinical exercise prescription, health education and the delivery of exercise based lifestyle and behaviour modification programs or services for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. Exercise Physiologists are 4 year university trained Allied health professionals.
Diseases and injuries often impact a person’s ability to lead a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. CorpFit aims to overcome and manage these areas of life to improve your outlook and general well-being.
Home-Based Exercise Program
Exercise programs are important in regaining full function following a work injury, even after the injury has healed.
Our locally based health professionals will take the time to properly assess an individual’s condition, determine any necessary treatment and create a tailored exercise program to aid their recovery.
Is your workplace set up to accommodate the specific requirements of an injured worker? How will your employee cope when they return to work?
How it works
As part of the personalised rehabilitation program, we will provide the individual with home exercise sheets and demonstrate how to safely and effectively carry out each exercise. We will provide ongoing support by monitoring progress and adapting the exercise program according to the individual’s needs.
The length of a home-based program varies depending on the extent of the injury and the individual’s ability to self manage the program and exercises. However, 8 to 12 weeks is generally recommended to achieve successful return to work outcomes.
Gym-Based Exercise Program
Whether it be back pain, a sprained ankle or torn muscle, specific exercises provided by a qualified Exercise Physiologist can contribute significantly to their rehabilitation.
How it works
Exercise therapy empowers the individual to take control of their recovery without being heavily reliant on a therapist.
Exercise helps to increase energy and range of motion, strengthen the muscles, circulate blood flow and improve general cardiovascular health.
Following an initial assessment, the individual will be shown how to safely carry out exercises specifically designed to target their rehabilitation needs. Some examples of exercises include:
- Core stability for back related injuries
- Strengthening exercises – balancing and different ranges of movement
- Series of stretches specific to the injury
We will provide ongoing support by monitoring progress and adapting the exercise program according to the individual’s needs.
The length of a gym-based program varies depending on the extent of the injury and the individual’s ability to self manage the program and exercises. However, 8 to 12 weeks is generally recommended to achieve successful return to work outcomes.
Hydrotherapy is a form of physiotherapy treatment or exercises performed in a heated pool.
The buoyancy and resistance of water you experience create a special therapeutic environment unlike any other form of exercise, which is why it is often recommended for rehabilitating injuries.
How it works
Our hydrotherapy programs are set up and monitored by an accredited exercise physiologist, who is qualified and experienced in providing hydrotherapy treatment.
Following an initial assessment, the individual will receive a hydrotherapy program designed to target their specific rehabilitation needs. We will step them through the exercises and provide ongoing support to monitor progress.
The length of a hydrotherapy program varies depending on the extent of the injury, recovery and the individual’s (ability) to self manage the program and exercises. Where appropriate, a hydrotherapy program will progress to a land-based gym program.
Hydrotherapy assists you to:
- Begin gentle exercises soon after injury, which helps speed up the rate of recovery
- Strengthen your muscles
- Enhance your flexibility
- Improve your coordination and balance
- Increase cardiovascular fitness
- Manage injury related pain better
- Improve overall relaxation
A proper workstation setup and posture analysis can decrease the risk for pain and injuries. At CorpFit, we work closely with local government departments, mining and engineering companies, providing ergonomic services prior to moving to new offices or to current employees who already experience pain while working at their workstations. We assess the workers’ posture and their workstation and equipment, and once needed, we recommend modification and new equipment. Importantly, we encourage the workers to be more active during working hours, decreasing the time spent in sitting position.

Functionality Capacity Evaluation
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an assessment to investigate the client’s current physical and functional capacity to investigate if the person has the capacity to perform specific tasks. The FCE is strongly recommended for people retuning to work following injuries. Our exercise physiology clinic is well equipped to facilitate the FCE and it is located at Osborne Park.
How we work
At CorpFit we pride ourselves in offering our patients the latest technologies to help you achieve your outcomes. To create your tailored exercise programs we use an app that allows you to complete your prescribed exercise program by following crystal-clear, narrated exercise videos. Built-in reminders help you to stay on track towards a better you!
