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.
