In our work performance program we often see people with acute work related injuries from a large variety of things like a wrist or back fracture after falling off a ladder or slipping on a floor. Some other injuries are a result of operator error or equipment malfunction resulting in a shoulder, hand or finger injury. Others are the result of a laceration to a tendon. There are a myriad of types of accidents that can happen at work.
We also treat more ongoing problems like cumulative trauma disorders which can result in aching, pain, tingling and/or numbness in the fingers and hands. We also treat tendinitis in the shoulders,elbows, wrists or knees. Others come to us with pain in their back, hips and legs and/or feet. Again, these are just a few examples of work injuries we treat.
When you are referred to start therapy depends on your specific injury and/or the surgical procedure you underwent. Some injuries like sprains/strains and tendinitis are referred right after your injury. Surgical procedures may require you coming in for treatment while still in a cast and others may require you coming in after the cast is removed. It is very important that you follow the guidelines established by your doctor for starting therapy for you to recover properly.
Whatever the cause or nature of your injury, we will listen to you to fully understand the impact of this injury on your ability to do your job as well as to understand its' impact on your ability to bathe, dress, do household activities as well as participate in your favorite leisure pursuits. We will then evaluate your injury and provide an individualized treatment program to address your particular needs.
Once the acute part of your injury is rehabilitated, we will make sure you are moving efficiently to reduce the recurrence of your symptoms in the future.
