Injury Rehabilitation Programs

Corporate Health Care

Our clients benefit from seamless integration (including electronic medical record access) to the doctors at Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospital. As an affiliate of Western Connecticut Healthcare, we’re able to directly access lab results, radiological reports and prescriptions from physicians, specialists and ancillary services to provide optimal care to your employees.

Integrated Physical and Occupational Therapy

Our physical therapists perform acute physical therapy for the care of new and previous injuries. Our occupational therapy staff provides clinical expertise to address specific functional deficits, using exercises, activities and functional modifications. In both cases, the goal is always to help the employee return to work with normal job responsibilities as quickly as possible.

Work Conditioning Program

Work conditioning programs occur over a period that can range from two to six weeks, during which time an employee can work to measure and/or improve his or her ability to perform job functions. The program is designed to simulate work activities while also educating the employee about health and safety on the job.

Functional Capacity Evaluation

The Functional Capacity Evaluation determines an individual’s optimum, safe performance level using specific work-related job tasks based on the actual job demands. This is especially helpful for employees with complicated injuries and illnesses. This evaluation can help discern an individual’s:

  • Functional abilities
  • Potential disabilities
  • Qualification of work abilities for medical/legal reasons

Fit for Duty Assessment

These exams help measure whether an employee has the physical capacity to perform his/her job functions safely and without physical harm. This is appropriate for employees who have received approval from their primary care physician to return to work, regardless of whether the illness or injury was work-related. At Corporate Health Care, we take an integrative approach to developing this assessment, which includes input from our medical staff and physical/occupational staff.

Work Simulation Services

Work simulation helps determine whether a job candidate is physically capable of performing all necessary job-related duties prior to returning to their job. It can be a useful tool in establishing whether or not a candidate or employee is sufficiently fit or strong to work safely and to maximum potential. Workers’ Compensation Case Management We provide the full continuum of workers’ compensation services for the injured employee, including:

  • Treatment of on-the-job injuries
  • Comprehensive case management
  • Oversight of employees on restricted duty
  • Follow-up injury examinations
