Case Workers/ Claims Managers
Progressive Physical Therapy is committed to working with employers to manage the care of their employees. Through regular phone calls and correspondence, we provide timely communication with caseworkers, employers, and physicians. We know it’s important to keep you informed of employee progress, return-to-work status, and treatment recommendations. We will provide detailed reports, and act as a liaison between workers, physicians, case workers, and employers.
Our work conditioning program is four to six weeks and is designed to restore employee function. It consists of exercises to improve strength, balance, flexibility, stabilization, cardiovascular reconditioning, and to evaluate a safe return to work. Work conditioning programs are meant to be self-paced.
Back and neck problems are among the most common work-related injuries. To target these areas, we have developed the Fitch Protocol, a treatment regimen that strengthens the muscles that support the spine. When applied correctly, this process can reduce the likeliness of re-injury.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)
A functional capacity evaluation is a systematic method of measuring an individual’s ability to perform meaningful tasks on a safe and dependable basis. FCE includes all impairments, not just those that result in physical functional limitations.
FCE has four specific purposes:
- Improve safety
- Identify functional ability
- Determine presence and degree of disability
- Case resolution
Post Offer Employment Testing (POET)
We provide on-the-job injury management and post-offer employment testing to identify pre-existing conditions that could limit a worker’s ability to perform their job safely and lead to worker’s compensation claims down the line.
