Working to your specifications
We work closely with the patients, physicians, employers, vocational counselors, rehabilitation coordinators, insurance companies and other rehabilitation professionals to ensure success in the program.
These programs are unique. We specialize in evaluations and treatments to meet the individual needs of the patient.
The WorkAbility program is a specialized service that assists individuals returning back to work after an occupational injury, accident or illness. We treat a wide variety of diagnoses including traumatic brain injury, neurological and neuromuscular disorders;
orthopedic neck, back, upper extremity and lower extremity injuries; repetitive motion injuries and chronic pain. Our program is staffed by licensed occupational therapists.
Fit for Function
Fit for Function is a comprehensive and objective assessment designed to assess and improve a patient’s maximum physical abilities related to basic and instrumental activities of daily living (BADLs and IADLs).
Fit for Function has a musculoskeletal base and rates a patient's demonstrated performance.
Physical abilities and limitations are compared to physical and functional findings (i.e. range of motion, muscle strength, sensation, dexterity,
postural tolerances and dynamic movement patterns).
The patient is instructed and educated in safe range of motion to perform BADLs and IADLs, neuromuscular re-education, self-care management, proper body mechanics, symptom management techniques and alternative strategies for functional movement patterns to avoid injury.
Fit for Function is not limited to a specific diagnosis or disease process. It is the basis for identifying a patient's abilities/limitations related to ADLs. It is also a goal, oriented treatment program to improve overall function with select ADLs without compensatory movement pattern, or exacerbation of symptoms.
