Work Injury Management
Our administrative staff works cohesively with the injured person’s employer, medical team, insurance company, and/or attorney to allow the individual to focus his or her complete attention on recovery.
Workers compensation injuries are treated with a personalized plan-of-care, proven physical therapy procedures and innovative recovery techniques. Our physical therapists are able to work with patients to reduce their pain and give instruction on how to prevent future injuries. Through Premier Physical Therapy, employees will receive strengthening and conditioning exercises to improve endurance to allow the injured worker to safely perform their work duties.

Work Hardening Physical Therapy Program
One of our most successful occupational interventions is the Work Hardening Program. This goal-oriented, outcome-based program uses real and/or simulated work activities to restore physical and vocational function.
We stress the importance or immediate evaluation and care of the injury.
Communication between all parties involved is crucial in successful rehabilitation. We follow a structured system designed to promote communication between the patient, physician, physical therapist and case adjustor/manager. This allows all parties to understand the individual ’s treatment plan, prognosis, and return-to-work status.
