The Rehab Center

Our physical therapists offer individualized services to help patients develop the physical and functional capacities required to return to productive and fulfilling lives. Through detailed evaluations and goal-oriented programs, our patients will gain improved function aimed at resuming life and work activities.

As members of the interdisciplinary team, our physical therapists are an integral part of the management of patients in the Functional Restoration Program. All patients receive a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment planning prior to the start of physical therapy. Patients participating in The Program receive treatments for affected areas, but the focus is on improving function of the total body. Attention is centered on building muscle strength, flexibility, cardiovascular conditioning, positional tolerances and endurance, as well as education in proper posture and body mechanics, in an effort to minimize risk of re-injury. After conclusion of the treatment, patients are provided with home maintenance programs.

Acute and Sub-Acute Physical Therapy
is provided for more recent injuries. It may include manual treatment, therapeutic exercise for range of motion, flexibility, strengthening, stabilization exercises for the joints and spine, body mechanics education and training, strategies for building endurance and job simulation.

Work Conditioning/Hardening programs are individualized to the needs of the patient and their specific job requirements. Treatment is based on the patient’s physical capabilities. Each patient starts a program lasting from 2-to-4 hours/day, 3-to-5 days/week and progresses each week to a goal of completing an 8-hour day. The program includes flexibility, strengthening, stabilization, cardiovascular conditioning, positional tolerance and endurance training, balance and coordination training, job simulation, education and training in proper body mechanics, preventive stretching, and proper work postures and ergonomic habits.
Mild head-injured patients are accepted into this program.

Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)
are comprehensive tests performed by physical therapists to determine a patient’s physical capabilities. Positional tolerances, musculoskeletal screen, consistency of effort, maximal lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, repetitive lifting and pushing, and endurance testing are routinely performed. Specific testing identified by the physician, case manager or employer will also be performed as requested. Conclusions, recommendations and concerns about performance are included in all FCE reports.
