In the United States, work-related injuries and illnesses are common and preventable. Each year, one in 100 workers suffer a work-related injury or illness that is severe enough to result in at least one missed day of work. These injuries and illnesses affect the employee, their families, and society in general.
Physical therapy can help explore the worker-job-environment relationship and facilitate the return to work or determine if reasonable accommodations can provide the needed support to resume work. The individual can receive physical therapy in the acute, subacute, or chronic phase of the healing process.
The Work Rehabilitation Program at Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness focuses on improving function and ability to return to work through therapeutic activities and work-simulated tasks. The plan of care will address mobility and flexibility, strength, cardiovascular and muscular endurance, safety, ergonomics and body mechanics, injury prevention, and tolerance to work requirements.
Our goal is to help maximize employee’s functional capacity to safely, efficiently, and thoroughly complete their job requirements. We also strive to educate and train the employee to use safe and proper posture and body mechanics for various work-related tasks to avoid re-injury.
