Work Injuries

“In 2014 in Wyoming, nearly 13,000 claims were received for non-fatal work related injury or illness. Roughly 87% or all claims received were accepted.”
 
 

Work related injuries are a large portion of our patient population. We provide comprehensive therapy that includes a patient’s individual and work related goals to return him/her to the highest performance potential. We will also help to reduce the risk of re-injury through proper body mechanics, strengthening, and postural education.

Many of our therapist are also certified in Pre-employment, Job Performance and Return to Work evaluations including Functional Capacity Evaluations.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

A FCE is a set of tests, practices and observations that are combined to determine the ability of the evaluated to function in a variety of circumstances, most often employment, in an objective manner. This test helps define what work class an individual is able to safely work. The test is a 1 or 2 day test each lasting approximately 4hr long segment.   

Pre-Work Screen’s & Return to work testing

All of our clinics are very proud to work with several companies throughout Wyoming and Nebraska. The goal of pre work screens is to ensure that the employee is a safe candidate for the specific job in which they are applying.  This has also been shown to reduce the prevalence of work place injuries. We also offer return to work testing to ensure the employee is capable of completing their work duties without recurrence of injury. If your company is interested in any of these tests feel free to contact any of our clinics.
