Who We AreRehabWorks provides an avenue of intervention designed to optimize an individual’s functional independence following surgery, after suffering an injury, or any debilitating condition. Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy are vital links for people to regain independence in meaningful daily activities that include work, leisure and self-care. Additionally Cardiac Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine programs provide services that most other community hospitals in our region are unable to provide. Our therapists are skilled in treating a variety of orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, and vascular disorders as well as work and sports related injuries. At every step of treatment, patients are provided with education regarding their condition and are encouraged to participate in developing their goals. To schedule an appointment, please call (814) 726-4070. Click here to view profiles on all of the staff at RehabWorks.
Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) work with patients to help them achieve their prior level of function. PTs achieve this goal by using state-of-the-art tools to help patients manage pain and therapeutic exercise to help patients improve their motion, strength, gait, balance, endurance, and/or gross motor coordination. PTs also educate their patients to help them better understand their diagnosis and to assist them with maintaining the gains made with therapy through instruction in a home exercise program.
RehabWorks offers physical therapy delivered by experienced therapists some of which are Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPTs). Additionally, therapists at
RehabWorks are specially trained in the management of running-related injuries and lymphedema among a number of other diagnoses ranging from sprains and strains to Parkinson’s. Stop into RehabWorks for your evaluation today. A referral from your physician is not even necessary.
Our speech and swallowing therapy program is designed to help adults and children manage disorders of speech, swallowing, memory and cognition, and voice. These problems may arise as a result of delayed development, stroke, head trauma, cancer, or neurological/degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's dementia, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), or Parkinson's disease. Our highly-trained speech-language pathologists focus on function and believe in a restorative therapy approach. Using current and evidence-based treatment techniques, our therapists help our patients achieve functional goals and maintain independence at home, at work, and in the community.
Occupational Therapists (OTR/Ls) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) work with patients to achieve independence in work, self-care, and leisure activities. To obtain this goal, our therapists use a combination of knowledge, skills, and state-of-the-art equipment to improve range of motion, strength, endurance, coordination, pain control, and/or sensory processing ability. OTR/Ls and COTAs thoroughly educate patients on their diagnosis and provide a home exercise program that preserves their gains made in therapy.
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) works with patients who are recovering from elbow, wrist, hand, and/or finger conditions to re-gain range of motion, strength, endurance, coordination, dexterity, sensation, and the ability to return to work. RehabWorks has the only CHT in Warren County, and he will design a protocol to fit the patient's capabilities and limitations. Using the Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment (BTE), which is a revolutionary machine that can re-create all of the motions that are required while on the job, the patient will be trained to perform his/her job duties before ever returning to work.
RehabWorks is one of the few facilities in the region to provide both phase II and III Cardiac Rehabilitation programs. Phase II is designed for people who are recovering from heart problems such as heart attack, bypass surgery, angioplasty, or stable angina. It is a physician referred, medically supervised and telemetry-monitored program with the goal of returning participants to an active lifestyle by providing education and exercise guidelines. Phase III Cardiac Rehabilitation is for those who do not require the monitoring or supervision Phase II provides, but still need a structured cardiovascular fitness improvement program.
Comprehensive Full Day Functional Capacity Evaluations
Worker’s Compensation is a concern for all employers. Thoroughly and accurately evaluating an injury with a Comprehensive Full Day Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a vital part of determining an employee’s readiness to return to work following an injury. RehabWorks began offering FCEs in 2006 to serve local businesses.
How Are We Different?
Other programs include only a two to three hour evaluation that makes projections regarding an individual’s ability to tolerate prolonged positions and to perform the speciﬁc lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling requirement of the pre-injury job. Comprehensive Full Day FCEs are completed over six to eight hours and simulate a full work day. In addition, RehabWorks’ highly skilled therapists have completed a rigorous FCE training program consisting of 35 hours of continuing education.
How Does this Benefit Your Organization?
A Comprehensive Full Day FCE pinpoints the employee’s ability to return to work and identiﬁes current abilities and limitations that may be present following an injury. If the employee is unable to return to work, recommendations are made regarding alternatives to the pre-injury job and/or steps that can be taken (weight loss, work conditioning, etc.) to facilitate return to work. Having the employee return to work when he/she is functionally able reduces the exorbitant costs associated with Worker’s Compensation claims.
The evaluators at RehabWorks use state-of-the-art equipment including the B.T.E. Primus Work Simulator which can mimic hundreds of commonly performed work-related tasks. The Chatillon Gauge is also used to quantify the force an individual is able to push and pull.
