Work Injury Recovery & Prevention
Keep Yourself Safe at Work with our Work Injury Recovery and Prevention Services!
No one wants to get injured while working, but when On-the-Job injuries do occur, it’s important to get the right treatment to prevent further loss to both the worker and the employer.
At Compleat Rehab & Sports Therapy, our team of China Grove, Gastonia, Huntersville, Lincolnton, Locust, Mint Hill, Mount Holly, and Charlotte, NC physical therapists will help get you back to work and get the most out of your work performance. Along with your regular treatment, we’ll instruct you on ways to reduce the risk of future injury by working smarter, instead of harder.
What can I gain from a work injury recovery and prevention program?
Work hardening is a specialized program with a different focus from post-injury therapy. The focus is to get the worker in work shape to successfully return to their pre-injury job.
The primary job functions are simulated in the clinic with indirect supervision from a therapist. This can be done in a group setting in which each patient is working on their job specific tasks required to get them back to work.
Work hardening is an ideal way to get a recovered patient back to work while minimizing the potential of re-injury.
This is similar to work hardening but usually comes before. Work conditioning is performed within the course of post-injury therapy and contains a certain work task being performed as a part of the routine therapy treatment.
An example would be a carpenter who has a shoulder injury and spends 10 minutes of his therapy treatment hammering over his head.
It is a way to help rebuild strength in the necessary areas following an injury, to make sure you are easing yourself back into your daily tasks safely.
