Work Injuries

We at Coastal Physical Therapy offer comprehensive programming for injured workers. We believe that prevention can never be over-emphasized. For this reason, we are intimately involved in physical capacity assessments and ‘work fit’ screening for numerous employers in the Gallatin Valley and the Northwest Region of the United States.

Once a worker has been injured, it is our goal to restore him/her to optimal function for safe and efficient job performance in a timely manner. We strive to provide effective case management, detailed and timely reports, and positive communication between health care providers, workers, and case managers. As part of our work injury rehabilitation, we perform a thorough assessment of the worker’s current functional abilities and gather information regarding his/ her job requirements. Rehab will utilize some combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, body mechanics training, modalities, and patient education/ home programming. We utilize skill and care, teaching you how to manage your condition independently so that you can return to work as soon as possible.

In addition we provide on-site seminars, ergonomic assessments, and work injury prevention training to local businesses. These seminars are always tailored to meet the specific needs of the business/ audience and are individually priced.
