The data was collected by reviewing published articles from Google scholar, PubMed, PubMed Central, Cinahl, BMJ Journals, BioMedCentral, Embase, PsycInfo, PEDro, Medline and the World Health Organisation databases. The literature was appraised according to the EVIDEM framework. This review has identified the multifactorial role of physiotherapy in occupational health rehabilitation and the associated legal implications and outcome measures for practice.
