Work Injury

Although many people can experience injury or impairments as a result of activities in their everyday lives, sometimes the problems occur as a result of a work related injury or repetitive stress placed on the body through occupational stressors.

Strains and sprains are the most common worker injury while worker injuries are most frequently the result of materials handling incidents.

The top five injuries as a percentage of total claims are:

  • strains and sprains (30 %)
  • cuts or punctures (19 %)
  • contusions (12 %)
  • inflammation (5 %)
  • fractures (5 %)

OTHER PAIN AREAS

Understanding the specific duties that are required for an injured worker to return to their job requires specialized training.  The physical therapists at West Park Rehab have been working with this population of patients for over 20 years.  In many cases, we have spent time on site with a number of employers to evaluate the functional demands of each job.  This has led to us developing more specialized rehabilitation programs that bridge the gap between injury and a safe return to work for patients.

West Park Rehab participates in most major Worker’s Compensation plans to include providing diagnostic testing that included EMG/NCS (nerve testing) and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound.

In addition to our expertise in providing efficient return to work rehabilitation, West Park Rehab also provide these specialized services.

Regardless of your injury, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery.

If your symptoms don’t improve within the first 10 days, you should seek care with one of our highly trained clinicians. Our team will develop a personalized treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE’s)

FCE stands for Functional Capacity Evaluation which is defined as a comprehensive medical assessment of an individual’s safe functional tolerances and physical limitations relative to work activities. The medical assessment usually consists of a series of tests to determine the injured worker’s capabilities and restrictions.

These tests may include a variety of physical performance analysis points including:

  • Range of motion
  • Flexibility
  • Physical strength
  • Lifting ability
  • Body mechanics
  • Stamina
  • Balance
  • Dexterity
  • Ability to carry objects

Post Offer Employment Tests (POET)

POET stands for Post Offer Employment Test. This is a specialized service provided by the highly trained therapists at West Park Rehab.  When hiring new workers, employers have the ADA and the EEOC that regulate who they can hire, how they should hire them, who they can’t hire or why they can’t withdraw an offer. There are all kinds of regulations that employers have to keep in mind while they are looking for that individual who will also fit their corporate culture, share their ideals, and possess the required education or experience necessary for the position.
