ANALYZE YOUR SITUATION

Chapter 9 focused on information you should gather in order to begin to take more control over your situation. This chapter will provide you with tools to assist you in that process. The information presented in these chapters is not meant to replace professional help in the medical, vocational, or psychological areas; rather, the information should help you understand all of the factors that may be present in your situation. In addition, it should help you make more informed decisions in order to move past your injury and on with your life.


FOCUS ON JOB REQUIREMENTS VERSUS YOUR CAPABILITIES

Once you feel confident that you understand your current medical situation, you should be ready to begin considering its vocational implications.


Physical Demands of Your Job

If your job is still available, the best place to start is by comparing your capabilities with what is required. The physical requirements of jobs are also called "physical demands." Figure 10.1
