Work Conditioning and
Functional Capacity Evaluations
A multi-disciplinary approach (physical and occupational therapy) designed for patients who have been injured on the job, but are not yet ready to return to work at their full capacity. The primary objective of the Work Conditioning program is to restore physical capacity and function to enable the injured worker to return to his or her pre-injury job. The program focuses on training and conditioning in proper body mechanics for lifting, carrying, and simulation of job specific work activities, as well as physical reconditioning to improve the workers strength, endurance, and flexibility.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT)
Premier Therapy Associates offers vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) for patients diagnosed with a vestibular deficit. There is very clear evidence in the scientific literature that VRT can promote a return of normal vestibular function by facilitating vestibular compensation through impairment directed exercises. Once established as a patient with Premier Therapy Associates, patients are examined by physical therapists to evaluate and assess what vestibular deficits are present. A plan of care is then established by combining patient specific goals and examination findings.
