Other Return to Work Services

Functional Capacity Evaluations
This evaluation provides the information for both client and physician to understand what the client is capable of doing. We will measure your range of motion, manual muscle strength, push, pull, lifting tolerance, nonmaterial handling, and cardiovascular endurance. We will then be able to determine your physical demand level. This evaluation is utilized for work injuries and for long term and short term disability. 

Work Conditioning/Work Hardening
These are 4-8 week functional restoration programs specifically designed for clients that have been out of work for a long period of time or who need additional strengthening and conditioning for very demanding jobs.  The focus of these programs is to increase strength, endurance, and flexibility while incorporating job- specific task training. Work conditioning is a 1-4 hour program 3-5 days per week. Work hardening is a 4-8 hour program 3-5 days per week.  If you need to be 100% to return to work then this program can be designed specifically to meet your needs.

 

Referrals/ Coverage

The Return to Work program accepts referrals from physicians, chiropractors, lawyers, nurse case managers, insurance companies, and other health care providers including occupational and physical therapists. We accept worker's compensation insurance. Most of our services are also covered by private insurances, liability insurance due to accidents, Medicare, and other forms of coverage. We will work with you to determine need for referral and coverage of services.  

If injury or illness is prohibiting you or someone you know from working or performing your job at 100% call our office today.  Let us get you "back into life!"
