WORKPLACE INJURY MANAGEMENT
Dr Ameer Ibrahim is ideally placed to rapidly assess and manage injured workers. His skill set puts him at a distinct advantage over many other treating physicians and allied health professionals.
Dr Ibrahim has a long history of providing accurate diagnosis, rapid and appropriate investigations and evidence-based treatment programs for workplace injuries. He has special training in managing both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
Common injury patterns seen in the injured worker include overuse tendon injuries (seen often in the shoulder and elbow), knee cartilage and ligament injuries and ankle ligament damage. Unfortunately Dr Ibrahim cannot see patients regarding back and neck injuries.
These injury patterns are also seen in sports and exercise. Dr Ibrahim is able to apply evidence-based treatment in a timely and appropriate manner in an effort to return the injured worker, with minimal time lost.
In addition, appropriate investigations and rapid referrals are possible to facilitate further treatment options as required.
