Early Return to Work
As an employer, Dominion PT is your partner in managing your employees’ recovery and minimizing time lost from work. Our program uses a “care team” approach to identifying the steps needed for a patient to resume normal job functions. Working together with the patient and their employer, the team of physicians and nurses, clinical case managers, and Dominion’s skilled therapists then oversees the regimen with the goal of returning the patient to work at the earliest medically-responsible date. In addition to the therapy itself, we assist employers in identifying options for shortening the time needed to return to work. These can include shorter work hours, less physically demanding “transitional” duties, or even temporarily modified job responsibilities.
Recovery from sports-related injuries involves targeted treatment to restore activity, strength, and motion following an injury and/or surgery. Physical therapy for this type of injury can teach patients specific exercises, stretches, and techniques, and employ specialized equipment to address problems that cannot be managed in any other fashion. Dominion’s goal is getting you back in the game!
Following accidental injury, the road back to a normal routine can seem long and difficult. At Dominion, we are committed not only to identifying courses of therapy that will speed recovery, but also to personalized treatment that enhances comfort and builds confidence.
Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction Therapy
This painful condition can be extremely disruptive and disconcerting. Let Dominion’s caring staff help treat and manage your TMJ.
Therapy for persistent neck and back pain can often produce remarkable results in terms of restoring mobility and relieving pain. In general, the goals of physical therapy are to decrease pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent recurrences. In-office treatments in combination with home care and a regimen of moderate exercise may all be part of successfully speeding recovery in these instances.
