To reduce time off from work, Endeavor Physical Therapy & Wellness’ rehab center in Austin, Texas, schedules workers' compensation patients within 24 hours of receiving the referral.
Goal-Oriented PT Programs
We offer comprehensive, practical rehabilitation delivered by specially trained therapists. Depending on a patient’s needs, that may include any manner of physical therapy, hand therapy, and/or occupational therapy. Hands-on and equipment-assisted therapeutic methods utilize the principles of PT as well as sports medicine to address job-specific tasks and ensure a patient’s physical capabilities upon return to work.
With our certified hand therapists (CHTs) and certified manual therapist (FAAOMPT) on staff, we provide the very best PT care in Austin. Our highly qualified and experienced clinicians work with our workers’ comp patients to increase their strength, endurance, and cardiovascular function – with a positive approach to care that encourages a return to full function.
We educate patients about their injury and provide guidance and instruction on the types of home exercises that will accelerate their rehab results based on their condition and therapy goals.
Focus on Prevention
We provide wellness care that focuses on preventing future injuries such as falls, repetitive stress injuries, and other workplace accidents and injuries. This often includes strength training, work conditioning, ergonomics, and occupational therapy. Therapies are selected for their ability to allow our workers’ comp patients to safely return to their jobs and to help reduce the risk of re-injury.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs)
These assessments measure physical abilities and tolerance levels to determine when patients are able to safely return to work. We use valid, reliable tools during testing for objective results that patients and employers can rely upon.
Continuity of Care
We communicate with your primary care doctor and insurance company to coordinate your care and streamline your experience with us. Our dedicated physical therapists work with all parties in a workers’ comp claim and deliver progress reports as needed.
We participate in numerous workers' comp networks so chances are our services will be covered under your plan.
