Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy services play an important role in the management of work-related injuries. Early intervention with therapy  has been shown to reduce the time needed to  restore a patient's form, strength, range of motion, and overall function following a musculoskeletal injury.

The WorkCare  Physical Therapy Program utilizes the most up-to-date techniques and equipment available to help get clients back to work quickly and cost-effectively. We participate  in almost all insurance companies and managed care organizations.

The WorkCare Physical Therapy approach helps improve  impaired physical function, relieve and control pain, and  prevent further disability

Treatment planning may target  any of the following areas:

  • Strength
  • Endurance
  • Coordination
  • Range of Motion
  • Passive and active exercises
  • Body mechanics
  • Pain reduction
  • Control of injury-related soft tissue swelling
  • Work conditioning
  • Repetitive and cumulative trauma disorders

Work Demands Assessments

WorkCare provides in depth consultative services which  can assist employers in identifying key physical demands requirements for various jobs.

Providing  significantly more detail than a basic job description, a work demands assessment can be combined with a pre-employment physical to better determine an applicant's ability to perform their essential job functions. 

In addition, in the event of a work-related injury, the work demands assessment data can be utilized to accurately measure a patient's recovery and determine the level of restoration of function.
