Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy
At Performance Work Rehabilitation, our multidisciplinary team provides something you won’t find with many other providers in the area: seamless therapy and rehabilitation services in Tacoma, Washington, from the acute stage to return to work. Many of our clients continue to work while participating in treatment.
Our physical therapists and occupational therapists are highly experienced in helping our clients begin the rehabilitation process. Physical therapy involves manual therapy, range of motion exercises, strengthening and conditioning, correcting muscle imbalances, developing a home exercise program, and using modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, and others as needed.
Occupational therapy focuses on increasing functional work tolerances and improving activities of daily living, body mechanics, and posture to reduce compensatory movement patterns due to pain and physical restrictions. We provide body mechanics education for home activities to enable clients to participate in their normal activities while recovering.
Our physical and occupational therapists are skilled in helping individuals recover from many conditions and situations including:
- Back and neck injuries
- Knee injuries
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Joint replacement surgery
- Spine surgery
- Arthroscopic surgery
- Plantar fasciitis
- Repetitive stress injuries (shoulder, elbow, etc.)
- Sprains and strains
- And more
Treatments may include:
- Core stability training
- Progressive strengthening
- Positioning and posture
- Body Mechanics
- Modifications to activities of daily living (ADL)
- Gait training
- Hot and cold application
- Sports medicine
We begin case coordination with the physician, claims manager, employer, and other professionals from the onset of therapy in an effort to reduce the length of the overall claim. Our documentation provides clear, current, and objective information on work tolerances. We begin discussing the return-to-work process with our client and continue that focus throughout treatment.
