It is important to return the injured worker back to the workplace promptly to maximize coping skills and functional capacity and return to a normal activity level. The overall goal of any injured worker rehabilitation program is to shorten the time frame from onset of injury to a return to the work force. The most efficient outcome is achieved when there is immediate intervention following an injury.
Injured workers benefit from physical therapy services from the onset of injury through their return to work. Early physical therapy intervention will help with early motion, reducing pain and swelling, and reinforce a healthy attitude to an early return to work. Many injured workers who receive appropriate early care return to their job without additional rehabilitation services. Modified work arrangements can also be very productive in maintaining the injured workers attitude.
ProPT has a new expanded dedicated space for the injured worker in need of work conditioning. The facility is equipped with the latest equipment consisting of Paramount Functional Trainer, treadmill, bike, full line of dumbbell weights, lifting station, traditional rehab equipment and work simulation equipment.
