Work-related injuries pose a particular set of demands, making effective communication vital. Our PTs regularly connect with all stakeholders, including patients, physicians, employers, case managers, insurance adjusters, and attorneys. We use the “industrial athlete” concept and apply many of the same techniques to injured workers as we do with an injured athlete. We emphasize job simulation tasks to prepare injured workers for safe return to duty.
The comprehensive work injury rehabilitation services offered at Activo Physical Therapy are designed to help injured workers eliminate pain and maximize function, so they can safely transition back to work. Our therapists provide effective, one-on-one work injury treatment customized to the worker and the employer’s unique needs and goals.
How we can help:
- Individualized treatment that includes hands-on manual therapy.
- Instruction in proper body mechanics, workplace ergonomics, and lifting techniques.
- Incorporation of job-simulation tasks in each treatment session.
- Emphasis on physical conditioning, which is an often-overlooked aspect of treatment for a worker out of action.
