Industrial Rehabilitation

In our Franklin complex, Milford Regional Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine offers innovative therapy for patients who have sustained an injury while at work.   Right from the first visit, patients are evaluated with the goal of returning them to their occupation.  We quickly establish a plan for simple functional improvement and incorporate appropriate levels of cardiovascular, body mechanics and direct as well as indirect strengthening to treat them as a whole person. 

Once we have established a basic level of functional mobility, we can move the patient into a more work specific environment in the clinic.  We do this in our extra 3000 square foot space which has larger, heavier and more simulative work tools that allow for greater creativity in rehabilitating our patients. 

In this space we can incorporate a systematic progression of job activities. The injured worker is able to increase his/her functional strength and endurance while becoming more educated on proper posture, body mechanics, flexibility and pacing skills.  Each patient's plan of care is individually designed based on that patient's physical job demands as related to his/her diagnosis.  Patients are generally treated 2-3 times a week for the needed number of weeks in order to reach the primary goal of returning to work.

Our therapists have enabled firefighters, carpenters, nurses, masons, police officers, machine operators, landscapers and chefs to return to their pre-injury level of function and get back to work following a work related injury.  We pride ourselves on knowing how to accomplish this as well returning them safer than even before their injury.
