Prevention, rehabilitation, and recovery.
Occupational therapy at Premise Health focuses on preventing and treating upper body injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome or musculoskeletal sprains and strains, that can happen as a result of workplace tasks. Occupational therapists help members adapt work-related tasks, improve form, and create more efficient workspaces so they can successfully return to work. By conquering limitations and preventing injuries, we help members meet their fullest potential and reduce costs for their organizations.
Promoting optimal performance.
Care on a Broad Spectrum
Our occupational therapists treat a broad range of work-related injuries like repetitive motion disorders, hand injures, and chronic pain. However, when musculoskeletal injuries exceed the upper body, our integrated care model ensures members have access to the right help – even if it’s outside of our four walls. Our providers are trained in a broad range of services and help members find the answers they need when they need it. Whether it’s physical therapy, fitness, or primary care, treatment is always tailored to the member and their job tasks.
Keeping Everyday Activities Easy
Identifying a minor problem before it turns into a complex, expensive injury is key. That’s why we focus on creating functional work environments. By conducting pre-hire and ongoing assessments, we ensure members are equipped with the right tools and workstations to support their work-related needs. This emphasis on prevention aids in direct cost avoidance and makes coming to work and staying at work painless.
Hands-on Support that Makes a Difference
Through manual therapies, occupational therapists help members with hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder conditions. In addition to aiding those who are recovering from an injury or an accident, we can provide first aid support by creating splints and braces onsite, so members get relief quickly while preventing further damage. Care doesn’t stop there though; our provider team goes above and beyond to ensure members receive treatment and continue to make progress toward recovery.
