Work Place Injuries

Injured workers are a lot like injured athletes; only the playing field is different. And like an athlete’s injury, doctors typically recommend physical therapy to treat a work injury. Our physical therapists determine current physical limitations and provide evidence-based treatment for improved endurance, flexibility, and strength. 

People who have been injured on the job have a unique set of circumstances.  A Border  physical therapist will develop a treatment plan that is specifically targeted for your circumstances and injury. Goals are created in your workers compensation Initial Evaluation, and our team of experts will help you achieve these goals.   

We are your coach and partner to enable a return to work efficiently and safely. Treatment may include manual therapy, joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise, stretching, and work simulation tasks geared toward your job duties. Physical therapy is a holistic treatment that often combines multiple treatment options for recovery. Improving function every day is what we do best!

  • We accept all workers’ compensation insurances
  • Provide extended hours for treatments, including early morning and evening appointments
  • Schedule you quickly, offering same day appointments when able
  • Communicate with involved shareholders in a worker compensation case on a regular basis for necessary updates
