Industrial Rehabilitation Programs

Industrial Rehabilitation

An industrial rehabilitation program is a course of physical therapy and rehabilitation designed to help workers who are injured on the job to regain function and return to work. In addition to helping patients recover from injuries, industrial rehabilitation is also effective in preventing further injuries from developing. BEST Health System offers treatment options for injured workers or individuals looking to prevent a workplace injury. Reach out to our team to learn about our array of treatment options available within our industrial rehabilitation program.

When is Industrial Rehabilitation an Option?

Depending on the nature of an individual’s job, there are a number of injuries that can occur. Some common workplace injuries include:

  • Neck and back strain
  • Hip and knee sprains or strains
  • Slips and falls
  • Motor vehicle injuries or collisions
  • Repetitive stress and overexertion injuries

Although less common, individuals in desk-based jobs can also face the risk of workplace injuries such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postural issues that affect the neck and back
  • Chronic headaches

The healthcare professionals at BEST Health System are dedicated to finding the correct treatment plan for any injury a patient may be suffering from.

Industrial Rehabilitation Sessions

The primary goal of any industrial rehabilitation program is to resort function and mobility for the injured worker. These sessions generally consist of a combination of therapeutic exercises designed to help the following:

  • Strengthen the body
  • Increase range of motion
  • Relax tense muscles
  • Improve circulation
  • Mobilize joints and soft tissues

In addition to this, patients can also expect to receive education on workplace safety and proper ergonomics that can help to reduce repetitive strain on the body, correct posture, and decrease the likelihood of new or repeat injury.

The Cost of Industrial Rehabilitation

The cost for any physical therapy, including industrial rehabilitation, depends on factors such as the specific treatment performed, the length and number of sessions, and insurance coverage. If physical therapy is ordered by a physician, it is an approved form of therapy by most insurances.
