Workers’ Comp.

ProCare for Workers’ Compensation injuries

Musculoskeletal disorders are the country’s most costly workplace health issues and the leading Workers’ Compensation claims. In the United States, acute and cumulative workplace trauma disorders affect one out of every four people. These include:

  • Back & neck and shoulder pain & injuries
  • Low back pain & chronic back pain
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Wrist & hand pain, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee, ankle pain & foot pain & injuries
  • Rehabilitation following surgery

Injury to the muscles, tendons and/or nerves occurs either due to repetitive motion, blunt force, compression, vibration or sustained body positions in the workplace. Our mission includes helping patients regain their work productivity in the most efficient way possible. Our goal is to return patients to full employment without restrictions in the shortest time possible, through:

  • Physical therapy using evidence-based protocols
  • Posture & body mechanics training (proper standing, lifting, reaching & bending)
  • Warm-up exercise & stretching to prevent muscle tear or microtrauma
  • Relaxation training to facilitate stress reduction
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Pain management therapy
  • Strengthening, flexibility & general conditioning to meet the physical demands of work
  • Safety education & injury prevention techniques

We design programs that enable workers to relearn or maintain their skill and performance at work. We even provide education programs that focus on reducing risk of reinjury. We maintain close communication with referring physicians, Workers’ Compensation claims managers and employers to smooth the patient’s transition back to fully functional employment.

Help patients get relief from their work injuries and help them restore their livelihoods.
