Injured Worker Rehab
Have you been injured and are no longer able to work? Have you struggled with nagging neck pain or back pain while on the job? At Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, our clinicians specialize in helping injured workers get back to work. Our goal during treatment is to discover the TRUE CAUSE of injury. Our focus is to treat the individual, not just the injury. Many work-related injuries occur due to biomechanical issues that range from improper posture to faulty lifting mechanics to muscular imbalances.
Our clinicians utilize their specific training as movement specialists to return you to work as safely, quickly, and effectively as possible. Regardless of the injury our goal is to help you return to the healthy and pain-free person you deserve to be.
Through a comprehensive rehabilitation program designed specifically for you, and based on your job requirements, treatment can include any or all of the following: manual therapy, therapeutic and corrective exercises, functional movement training, postural re-training and body mechanics education.
We offer all services ranging from acute/post-injury, to work conditioning/work hardening, and Functional Capacity Evaluations.
If you injured your back picking something up, why did that happen in the first place? What biomechanical faults exist in your body that caused the back to be injured when you lifted? That is the difference at Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. We are trained movement specialists who find the cause to make sure that the injury never happens again. We want to help you be able to move without pain and return to your job duties safely, effectively, and in a faster period of time.
