Industrial Medicine / Workers Compensation

Understanding Industrial Medicine / Workers Compensation

When it comes to industrial medicine and workers compensation, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First and foremost, it’s important to understand that these types of injuries and conditions are often caused by the repetitive motions and stress of a specific job or occupation. This means that they require specialized treatment and rehabilitation in order to fully heal and prevent recurrence.

Another important thing to know is that the recovery process for industrial medicine and workers compensation injuries may be more complex and time-consuming than for other types of injuries. This is because it’s not just about treating the physical injury, but also about addressing any underlying issues that may have contributed to the injury in the first place.

At Atala Physical Therapy, we understand the unique needs of industrial medicine and workers compensation patients. Our team of expert therapists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and helps you recover quickly.

  • We work closely with the patient’s employer and insurance company to ensure that the treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s specific job duties and requirements.
  • We provide comprehensive evaluations and assessments to determine the cause and extent of the injury, and to identify any risk factors that may contribute to future injuries.
  • We develop and implement individualized treatment plans that focus on reducing pain, improving function, and preventing re-injury.
  • We use a variety of evidence-based treatment techniques, including manual therapy, exercises, modalities, and education to help the patient achieve their goals.
  • We provide education and training on ergonomics, injury prevention, and self-care to help the patient return to work safely and prevent future injuries.

At Atala Physical therapy, we also make sure that the therapy process is as fun and enjoyable as possible. We do this by incorporating fun exercises, giving light jokes during sessions, and providing a comfortable atmosphere for the patients.

As the result of an automobile accident I ended up with a wrenched left shoulder, back and neck. Terri was among the approved therapists under my health care system. Her warm, enthusiastic, positive approach and professional treatment over six sessionss provided the relief I sorely needed. She and her welcoming staff have my highest recommendation.

A caring and thoughtful clinic, where the owner and team have excellent diagnosis skills and treatments. This is a quiet clinic, with private treatment rooms and they are maniacal about cleaning, even before COVID.... I highly recommend all the therapists and exercise specialists at Atala...

I have needed physical therapy several times over the past few years. Atala Physical Therapy is by far the best. They have excellent customer service and they are the very best at working with me to go over what I need to do to get back into a pain-free life. I highly recommend Terri, Illsong, and everyone there.

I have had such a great experience at Atala Physical Therapy! After suffering with right hip pain when I was sleeping on my ride side for a year I finally decided to seek help and was SO fortunate to find Terri! She was so good at looking at the big picture and me as a whole and what could be contributing to my problem. She made recommendations I was able to implement right away that made a positive difference. She is always timely, never rushed, also personable, professional and truly caring! Jason was wonderful with assisting me with exercises and the entire office has a very good vibe! If you are having chronic pain or orthopedic problems I would definitely go and see Terri! I can't thank their team enough!
