OTHER REHAB SERVICES

The Freedman Group offers comprehensive rehab services such as impairment ratings, workplace ergonomics assessments, home assessments, work hardening, and case files.

FCEs

 

A well-connected group of evaluative measures, focused on abilities and limitations with regard to a specific task, are utilized. Multiple validity testing and cross validation methods are a core element of every FCE to determine whether “best effort” is given and whether symptom magnification is present during the evaluation. The Functional Capacity Evaluation is conducted for a variety of problems such as back injury, extremity injury, repetitive motion problems, etc. The focus is on a worker’s physical ability to safely sustain work activities and is usually tied to a specific job description. Specific recommendations are provided for assistance in return to work or case closure. A quality FCE generally takes 4-5 hours. Non-English evaluations are routinely performed. The Freedman Group therapists have over 20 years of industrial rehab and FCE testing experience with over 4,000 Functional Capacity Evaluations completed.Please contact the clinic for our detailed brochure on Functional Capacity Evaluations, references, sample FCE reports and bibliographies).

 

 

How impaired are you?

 

Although many physicians do their own impairment rating (PPD), when requested, The Freedman Group can provide this report. The impairment rating is a separate objective evaluation of a patient’s permanent physical impairment based on data collected either during the FCE or during a separate evaluation. Specific formulas and calculations are utilized to determine this rating, based on “The American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment” (latest edition). Please contact the clinic for a sample Impairment Rating report.

Getting you back to work

 

An in-clinic specifically designed one-on-one treatment and patient education program aimed at returning a worker to full function and full work status. Our work conditioning programs contain job simulation, as well as strengthening and endurance activities utilized everyday on that worker’s specific job (e.g. pushing, crouching, lifting, bending, twisting, sitting, etc.) Emphasis is on repetitive activity building up work tolerances with a keen focus on body mechanics and task management.

 

 

Be comfortable and healthy at work

 

This analysis has, as its goal, a factual understanding of the actual work at hand, not a specific worker. There are no recommendations (See Ergonomic Analysis). The therapist observes and collects photographic and objective data regarding the series of tasks and equipment involved in a specific job, within the environment in which that work occurs. The Job Site Analysis is often used to assist members of the rehabilitation team and case to understand the specific job in terms of return to work issues. It may also be used in developing standards for future hiring on a given job task.
