Work injury management: Our approach
From injury prevention to pain management, Bryn Mawr Rehab takes a creative approach in helping patients overcome work-related injuries. Our state-of-the-art RehabWorks facility has cardiovascular and isokinetic equipment, an on-site therapeutic pool and a work-hardening center. In this center, we combine physical and occupational therapy with work simulation activities for the practice, modification and instruction of work tasks.
Patients in work injury management have access to the following services:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Work conditioning/work hardening
- Pain management
- Functional capacity evaluations
- Aquatic therapy
- Bracing and splinting
In addition to our intensive therapy options, we identify and address occupational health issues through a comprehensive range of specialized evaluation services. We’ve designed these evaluations to maximize employee health and productivity while containing health care costs. Evaluation services include:
- Functional capacity evaluation
- Independent medical evaluation
- Pre-employment physical demand level screenings
- Physiatrist evaluation
- Psychological evaluation
Patients who participate in therapy at RehabWorks are often working-age professionals who have suffered a traumatic injury or serious illness. Many recovering patients need to regain their strength and relearn necessary skills. Our staff helps make the transition to the workplace as smooth as possible.
