Work Injury Treatment
The sooner an injured worker sees a clinician, the sooner a treatment plan can be developed and recovery can begin. Your injured workers will receive a prompt evaluation, effective treatment, and efficient rehabilitation services. Our goal is the same as yours - get the injured employee healthy and back to work.
Work Conditioning Program
Work conditioning is a work relevant, intensive, goal-oriented treatment program specifically designed to restore an individual’s strength endurance, movement, flexibility and motor control.
Information for managers, supervisors, and employees is presented on the appropriate academic level of the audience and directed to their specific occupations and environment. The goals of the program are:
- To increase the awareness of each employee’s role in supporting safe work behaviors and injury prevention.
- Early identification of job-related risk factors.
- Facilitate team communication and develops creative solutions to identify problems.
- To design and instruct individuals and department heads to allow independent follow-through with wellness or flexibility programs.
