Our physical therapists focus on the injured worker’s functional goals, with a rapid progression of care. By providing thorough assessments and documentation of functional tolerances, we ensure a safe return to work

Evaluation and Assessment:

A physical therapist assesses the nature and severity of the work-related injury through a comprehensive evaluation. This includes understanding the mechanics of the injury, identifying contributing factors, and evaluating the impact on the individual's physical function.

Pain Management:

Physical therapists use various techniques, including modalities like heat, cold, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, to manage pain and reduce inflammation associated with work injuries.

Restoring Mobility and Function:

Physical therapy aims to restore the injured worker's mobility, flexibility, and range of motion through exercises and manual therapy techniques.


Strengthening and Conditioning:

Customized exercises are designed to strengthen weakened muscles, improve overall physical conditioning, and address muscle imbalances caused by the injury.

Ergonomic Education:

Physical therapists educate injured workers about proper ergonomics and body mechanics to prevent further injury while performing work-related tasks.

Work-Specific Rehabilitation:

The therapy plan may include work-specific exercises to simulate job-related movements and tasks, helping the worker regain the ability to perform their job duties safely and effectively.

Functional Rehabilitation:

Physical therapists focus on restoring functional abilities required for work tasks, such as lifting, bending, reaching, and carrying.


Gradual Return to Work:

Once the injured worker reaches a certain level of recovery, physical therapists collaborate with employers and occupational health professionals to facilitate a gradual and safe return to work.

What  You Can Expect?


Heat or Ice Pack Therapy

Heat increases blood flow, promoting the relaxation of muscles and easing tension, making it an excellent choice for relieving tightness.

Ice therapy helps constrict blood vessels and decrease blood flow to the affected area, reducing inflammation and swelling – a crucial element in the early stages of injury.


Pain Relief Electric

Pain relief electrical stimulation, often referred to as electrical stimulation therapy or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), is a medical and therapeutic technique that uses electrical impulses to alleviate pain and promote healing.


Techniques like massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy are used to address muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce muscle knot.

Massage therapy after surgery can accelerate the recovery process by promoting healing, preventing complications, and regaining function sooner.



Uses high-frequency sound waves to treat various musculoskeletal conditions and promote tissue healing.

Ultrasound therapy stimulates tissue repair and accelerates the natural healing process. By promoting blood flow and collagen production, it enhances the body's ability to recover from injuries and surgeries.
