Work-related injuries can have drastic effects on business and industry. To employers, both large and small, work-related injuries result in lost time, production, and revenue. Injured workers are affected by the injury itself, and by lost income and potential disability. Combined, these results cost the American economy billions of dollars every year. Thus, it is in the best interest of both employees and employers to reduce risk of work-related injuries and, when injuries do occur, to have prompt, effective rehabilitation. Select Therapy’s full line of Industrial Medicine programs and services provides just that. These include:
- Pre-Work Screens: Pre-Work Screens serve to ensure a worker has the abilities to safely perform the physical demands of a specific job in order to protect both employee and employer from potential injury.
- Functional Capacity Evaluations: Functional Capacity Evaluations are used to determine an employee’s ability to return to work or disability level by determining their highest functional level.
- Work Conditioning: Select Therapy’s Work Conditioning program focuses on a goal-oriented treatment plan to prepare the individuals injured on the job for a successful return to the workplace. This rehabilitation process begins on the employee’s first day at Select Therapy.
Select Therapy strives to obtain a higher level of physical function than the employee had prior to their injury in order to return to work as soon as possible and prevent re-injury.
