Physical Therapy that Works for You

Bridging the Gap 
    Amer-I-Can Work Rehab was established in 2005 to bridge the gap between therapeutic recovery and effective return to work  of today’s workers. For years physical therapy treatments have relieved pain and dysfunction of injured individuals.  However, the focus has been based on the  model of returning normal motion and strength to a joint, thereby returning normal function.  Very little consideration was given toward the worker’s transition to an effective and safe return to work. At Amer-I-Can Work rehab we believe in  keeping our patients productive, motivated, and focused on the goals of returning to work while restoring normal function.  
     Understanding how and when to modify an injured worker’s environment or method of doing a task is key to safely returning an injured worker to productive employment.  Without understanding why an employee injured themselves it is difficult to safely return an individual to work.  We specialize in training the employee in posture, alternative handling techniques, and specialized exercises that increase safety and minimize injures. 
Job Focused Rehabilitation 
  Along with the traditional modalities and exercises to speed the healing process of injured individuals, we understand the specific demands placed on workers and ensuring that they  can safely return to performing each job task.  This may entail specialized work simulation or performing duties in less than ideal postures.  Rehabilitating an individual who is required to perform office duties is much different than an individual who needs to be able to load trucks with 100 lb boxes or perform repetitive assembly line duties.         
When dealing with the many hurdles of today’s BWC system, communication between the employer, employee, physician, case managers, and rehab specialists is essential for an efficient and productive return to work.  Everyone who has dealt with the BWC system ends up calling it “a game”, meaning that the rules are complex, and there are lots of twists and turns along the way.  However, we think of it more as a “symphony”.  Everyone has to work together playing their part fully and in concert with other members to achieve a grand result.  If there is a breakdown in communication between the individuals, there are delays which cost large amounts of time, money, and frustration for all parties. We strive to play our part by providing quick response to our patients needs by:
1. Quickly getting them into rehab, normally within 2 days
2. Efficiently managing the case with legible, typed case notes. 
3. Prompt response to requests for information 
4. Efficient communication with the physician of record, and case managers.
