Occupational Medicine Therapies
Insuring employees get healthy and return to work
We offer occupational and physical therapy for people who have experienced a work-related injury. We also help companies identify and prevent injury trends both in the office and industrial settings, through a variety of treatments and interventions.
Our occupational medicine specialists are dedicated solely to treat work-related injuries. Each specialist has received extensive training in understanding a job's physical requirements how they affect the body.
We then implement an appropriate treatment plan. To ensure an injured worker is prepared to safely return to work as soon as possible, an on-site evaluation may be conducted.
We help employees get healthy and return to work, and provide individualized education to reduce the risk of re-injury. As a result, we can help employers reduce their Workers' Compensation costs and increase company morale and productivity.
We also believe in promoting a healthy lifestyle beyond your employees' immediate health concerns. Therefore, at the conclusion of therapy, every injured worker we treat and a friend receive a complimentary 60-day membership to the MedCentral Health & Fitness Center. We will waive the enrollment fee for our patients who decide to purchase a membership.
