As a doctor, here’s why you should consider partnering with us and Workability:
Experiencing back and neck pain can be debilitating to your way of life. Fortunately, together with Workability, we apply conservative approaches to back and neck pain with the goal of eliminating the need for surgery.
BNAP is an active and evidence-based rehabilitation programme aimed at helping patients with chronic back and neck pain improve function, treat the cause of their pain and improve their quality of life.
BNAP is a guided programme facilitated by our experienced staff and partners to ensure that you meet your needs and goals and alleviate pain interfering with your daily life. We follow a step-by-step process to ensure optimal results and patient safety.
First, we assess if BNAP is a suitable programme for your needs. You will then be contacted by a Case Coordinator, who is a non-treating physiotherapist or occupational therapist, to review your progress until the end of the programme.
Our partner physiotherapists at Bell, Rogers and Harris Physiotherapy will assess you, your medical history and the cause of your pain. They will explain the programme details to you as well.
We put together an active treatment plan and request that you sign the patient contract committing you to the treatment programme. You will have active individual combined with information sessions that take place over 1-6 weeks, depending on your goals.
Once the programme is complete, you will receive a home exercise programme and have regular check-ins with the Case Coordinator. Should you need further active treatment, they will assist with re-entry into the programme.
This functional rehabilitation programme is used by accredited Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and doctors to help patients take back control over their pain and activities so they can get back to the life they want.
The BNAP programme has an 84% proven success rate of getting patients back to life without surgery.
Other key benefits include:
The BNAP programme falls under the ‘Risk’ portion of medical aid funds, and is free for those with affiliated medical aids:
Suffering an injury at work can be life-alterting and make it difficult to return to normal life. Working together with Workability, we provide the WRAP programme for those who have experienced workplace injuries and require multidisciplinary treatment to return to work.
The Work Rehabilitation Assistance Programme assists patients who have sustained injuries at work and require specialised care to return to the workplace. WRAP is run by Injury on Duty (IOD) specialists, such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists, who will assess your injury and determine if you are capable of coping at work and at home.
Using a holistic approach that focuses on the individual need of each patient, WRAP aims to provide comprehensive care and treatments to alleviate pain and restore function.
Once referred, we can begin the process of developing your treatment plan. You will first need to complete several forms and have an assessment by our partner physiotherapists at Bell, Rogers and Harris Physiotherapy.
The physiotherapist will go through your medical history and understand the cause of the pain. They may request a second opinion from an occupational therapist to determine other aspects of work you may struggle with and what accommodations need to made. Once there is a comprehensive understanding of your needs, your therapists will explain the WRAP treatment plan.
Before treatment begins, you will be assigned a Case Coordinator, who is a non-treating physiotherapist or occupational therapist, to review your progress until the end of the programme.
WRAP is a specially designed programme that helps to manage and treat musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), including those affecting the back, hips, shoulders, neck, knees and hands.
With early intervention and evidence-based care, this rehabilitative programme ensures that patients receive the correct treatment in the shortest recovery time.
Other key benefits include:
The WRAP programme is funded by Workmen's Compensation Fund Injury On Duty (IOD) including COID, FEM, SAPS and RMA. Should you experience an injury at work, the WRAP programme will be covered by your company.
