Employees injured on the job need prompt, thorough rehabilitation services. We assist the worker in coping with the effects of the injury, both physically and emotionally, with the goal of overall health and accountability. We use the BioPsychoSocial model during treatment, which leads to our outstanding results of getting employees back to work sooner. Adding to our work comp expertise, Melissa White is also certified as an Iowa Workers' Compensation Specialist.
Workers' Compensation Physical & Occupational Therapy
If an injury requires formal therapy ordered by a physician, the employer has the right to choose the medical providers, including the therapy. We have experienced physical and occupational therapists that get employees back on the job faster with specialized rehabilitation and wellness services. Our therapists specialize in different areas in order to provide comprehensive care to all employees at our location. We will work with you to determine the best return to work plan, or help find appropriate light duty options based upon medical restrictions.
By building strength and body awareness, our intensive work conditioning helps workers rebuild strength and develop safe practices to return to work.
Functional Capacity Evaluations
Employing appropriate medical standards, we thoroughly assess injured employees and their physical status to provide the information needed to determine safe return to work.
I went in wondering if I was going to be able to do my job again. Now, my core is stronger than it has been in years, and I am back at work with most of my mobility and flexibility back. I'm thankful to the Balanced Fitness & Health therapists, who are very good at their jobs, personable and knowledgeable. I think my recuperation would have happened much faster if I had been able to go to Balanced Fitness & Health in the first place.
