Most people experience musculoskeletal problems some time during their lifetime. Some people fail to recover and return to work, not so much because of what has happened but because they come up against obstacles. Knowing how to facilitate recovery and when to act is essential for successful management of the problem. This book is about identifying psychosocial obstacles, formulating a plan and taking action to overcome or navigate around them. It enables identification of obstacles across the key areas of the Person, the Workplace and the Context, in order to develop a plan that addresses specific obstacles and also provides a timeline for recovery.
