Occupational Injuries Therapy & Treatment Boulder
North Boulder Physical Therapy Sports Rehabilitation
North Boulder Physical Therapy provides Physical Therapy and Hand Therapy for Occupational Injuries. We are contracted with most Worker Compensation insurance plans.
Services include Evaluation, Treatment, Conditioning, Hand Splinting, and Functional Capacity Assessments
Functional Capacity Assessments:
All tests are administered by a Physical Therapist trained specifically in FCE.
A functional capacity evaluation/assessment shows that pain and function are not the same. A kinesiophysical approach is used to determine function. This method relies on the physical therapist’s expertise to determine maximum function by observing the major and accessory muscles, body mechanics, speed, gait, heart rate and other physical factors. This is used instead of a patient’s report of pain, discomfort or observed pain behaviors. The physical therapist determines when maximum effort has been reached and stops testing when the activity becomes unsafe and dysfunctional.
A comparison is made between the critical job demands based on submitted job analyses and the worker’s functional capacities. Job specific recommendations/accommodations are offered when appropriate and necessary.
Our reports are completed and results are sent out within 48 hours of test completion.
