Phoenix Physical Therapy takes a comprehensive approach to preventing and treating work-related injuries. We believe it is important to partner with employers and payers to understand their processes and needs. We can customize solutions to fit your employee population. For work-related injury management, we have clinicians trained to follow the most up-to-date evidence-based guidelines for management. This includes:
- Fast scheduling within 24-48 hours to reduce the negative impact of delayed care.
- Risk stratification to predict delayed recovery and implement targeted treatment strategies to mitigate the risk.
- Active useful communication with stakeholders.
- Functional-based treatments to get employees back to work as early as safely possible.
- Functional progress notes that summarize objective job abilities to provide an update to return-to-work goals at regular intervals.
- Efficient care that limits overutilization with our internal Care Support Team.
For Injury Prevention we offer comprehensive employer-based services as well as clinic-based services. These include:
Job Analysis – Quantifying the essential physical demands of the job is the base of any injury prevention and management program.
Post-Offer Employment Testing – Don’t hire your next WC claim, test all job candidates to ensure they are physically capable of the job before they start. If your employees are getting MSK injuries in the first year on the job, or you have high turnover you can cut the cost in half by implementing a quality legally defensible POET program.
Ergonomic Programs – we offer industrial and office ergonomic screens and comprehensive assessments depending on your needs. If you have trends for injuries in a specific job or department, an ergonomic assessment may be a good way to identify the root cause and find effective solutions to improve.
Early Symptom Intervention – OSHA approved first aid treatments as used by trained clinicians to educate employees on safer work and home behaviors and perform self-management techniques early before a complaint turns into an injury. These programs often have a 70-80% resolution rate with no ongoing care needs.
Job Coaching – Certified Phoenix Injury Prevention Specialists come onsite to assist with the implementation of safety and ergonomic protocols for new hires, high risk areas and workers returning form injury to ensure a safe motivated workplace and reduced injuries.
Phoenix Physical Therapy takes pride in our workers’ comp partnerships and we are dedicated to providing successful outcomes. Please reach out to us today if you would like to consult on customized injury management or prevention solutions for your team.
