Physical and Occupational Therapy
In some cases, physical or occupational therapy is recommended by the physician. If so, therapists develop treatment plans designed to return the employee to his/her highest potential level of functioning as quickly as possible.
As a provider of work injury care, we understand that employers need to keep their employees safe and productive. When physical or occupational therapy is indicated to help get your employee back to full working capacity, Omega makes sure that physicians and therapists work closely together for best treatment outcome.

This individualized treatment program prepares an employee for return to work through conditioning to improve his/her biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and metabolic functions with real or simulated work activities.
Interdisciplinary in nature, it uses real or simulated work activities designed to restore physical, behavioral and vocational functions. Work hardening addresses the issues of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and worker behaviors.
