RPT Services

Industrial Health

RPT provides care for patients with all types of work-related and orthopedic injuries.

Benefits

Industrial Health

After a workplace injury, the injured worker is normally sent to a medical center to have a physical exam and a review of the worker’s medical history. After this physical examination, the injured worker is often referred for physical therapy. During the course of therapy at RPT, our patients are re-evaluated on a regular basis. Appropriate levels of exercise along with work-related and work-specific functional activities are introduced to prepare the worker for the critical demands of their job.

When Can I Get Back To Work?

Many times this complicated question is directed to a physician during a short visit. The physician is then faced with a complicated challenge as they try to determine appropriate return-to-work protocols. Normally they have not seen the patient recently and do not have the time or equipment to determine safe return-to-work parameters. We at RPT are qualified to answer this question.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

We are equipped to perform comprehensive Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE). The FCE is commonly used to assist in establishing impairment ratings, as well as safe return-to-work parameters for those who have been injured on the job. At RPT, we have a team of physical therapists who have been trained through an internationally acclaimed program to provide pre-work screening services and FCEs.

During treatment, appropriate levels of exercise, work-related and functional activities are introduced to simulate the critical demands unique to each patient’s lifestyle.

We are involved in providing services to businesses in our community, including transportation, mining, gas/oil production and food service distribution industries.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the work environment to best accommodate the worker. The goal is to make the environment safe, reduce the risk of injury and increase employee efficiency. This will reduce lost time incidents and industrial claims for the business.
RPT is able to send a specialist to the work site to assess employee workstations and make recommendations for modifications if new equipment is needed.

Functional Job Analysis

Functional Job Analysis is the process of evaluating and measuring the critical functional demands of a specific job. Our specially trained and certified physical therapists perform a thorough assessment of the employee, the work they are required to do, and their worksite. From this assessment, a description of the critical demands of the job are developed into a screening tool for testing future employees or employees returning to work.
During treatment, appropriate levels of exercise, work-related and functional activities are introduced to simulate the critical demands unique to each patient’s lifestyle.

Pre-Work Screening

RPT performs pre-work screens (PWS) for more than 30 companies. A PWS is a post-offer, pre-placement test performed by one of our specially trained and certified physical therapists. The applicant is evaluated to see if they are safely able to perform the physical demands of a specific job. The PWS includes a musculoskeletal screen to determine any underlying problems that would interfere with a new employee’s ability to safely perform his/her job. In addition, the PWS provides baseline measurements that can be used as part of an employee’s safe return to work following an injury or illness.
