WORKERS’ COMP INJURIES
If you have suffered a work-related musculoskeletal injury, the licensed physical therapists at SportFit have the training and experience to get you back to work safely and quickly, with less chance of reinjury.
While many injuries have obvious causes, the origins of workplace injuries can be more elusive. They can be hard to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. Physical therapy should always be an integral part of treatment to get injured patients safely back to work in as short a time as possible.
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are among the most serious occupational health hazards facing our country. They have the potential to prematurely end careers and destroy lives, and they take a tremendous toll on our country’s public-welfare programs. While most repetitive-stress disorders are associated with labor-intensive tasks involving heavy lifting or production-line assembly, even computer users can experience RSIs. If you have suffered a work-related or Workers’ Compensation injury, we can return you to work safely and quickly with our unique combination of hands-on, customized treatment and compassionate care. We can ease your discomfort and speed your recovery. We offer:
- Work conditioning – We provide individualized job-specific strengthening and body mechanics training designed to make workers stronger for their job demands before they return to work. Physical therapy increases their overall strength and endurance for work.
- Ergonomic assessment/body mechanics training – We offer individual training in posture and body mechanics that lead to independence and better symptom management. We can also assess the worker’s environment for proper ergonomics to reduce their chances of injury or reinjury.
We also provide you with regular progress reports. We have delivered thousands of healing treatments to area workers. Using our unique combination of positive motivation, personal attention and hands-on techniques, we have helped hundreds achieve healthier, more active lives.
We truly care about your recovery. Because at SportFit, we’re much more than just sports. To learn more about how we can help you solve your work-related injury problems, call us today.
