Welcome to Injured Worker Care

We believe in better movement for a better life.

We can help design physical rehabilitation programs tailored to the needs of your employees, allowing them to get back to work quickly after an injury. We work closely with clients to understand both their injury and their work environment to develop a customized plan of exercise. In addition to the one-to-one skilled physical therapy, we offer a work rehabilitation program and/or work conditioning. Work rehabilitation/conditioning is for patients that are unable to perform all their essential work duties and/or are out of work. The frequency of work rehab is dependent on the individual and varies from 1-4 hrs/day up to 5 days/week. In some cases, an individual might attend up to 20 hrs/week of work rehabilitation so we can assist with getting them back to full duty.

In addition to work rehabilitation programs, we offer functional capacity evaluations, pre-employment physical screenings, ergonomic assessments, and onsite workplace services. We have a therapist certified in ergonomic assessment to assist in injury prevention.
