West Rehab Industrial Therapy
West Rehab is interested in helping your business reduce on-the-job injuries and decrease Short and Long Term Disability, workers’ compensation, and related healthcare costs. Our program is comprised of several products that can be used in part or as a whole. With our help, you can manage on-the-job injuries as well as prevent future injuries so that your employees can remain effective and productive members of the workforce.
Impairment Ratings (IR/PPD)
Using The Guides To the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 5th edition, Impairment is defined as “a loss, loss of use, or derangement of any body part, organ system, or organ function.” Our Therapists at West Rehab perform a musculoskeletal exam (and/or FCE) to determine and calculate an impairment rating. We then present this in a concise and defendable report for your convenience.
Functional Job Analysis (FJA)
FJA identifies and evaluates the physical demands of work. This includes analysis of the human element (the worker), the tasks performed (the work), and the structure of the work (the worksite). This includes real, accurate, and objective measurements used to comprise a Functional Job Description (FJD).
Pre-Work Screening (PWS)
Developed using the data collected during the Functional Job Analysis, PWS is a test administered after a job offer to determine the ability of an applicant to safely perform the functional tasks of a specific job. Our methods are compliant with EEOC guidelines and are validated to accurately reflect the functional requirements of the job.
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)
The FCE is an in-depth functional test used to determine an employee’s ability to safely perform a wide range of functional demands.
Ergonomic consultation includes onsite analysis of a workstation or task in order to identify risk and offer possible solutions to prevent future injuries.
Physical and Occupational Therapy
A licensed Physical or Occupational therapist evaluates and provides treatment with the goal of restoring function and safe return to work. This may be completed on-site to make the process more convenient for both the employee and employer.

Why did you choose Physical Therapy as your profession? I have always loved helping people. I think it’s really important to be able to work and do things for yourself, especially with the way the economy is today.
Why WEST? West Rehab embodies the family oriented approach. My patients quickly become my top priority, and always leave feeling like a friend/family member rather than an ID number. I love what I do, and working for West makes that possible.
Why should a patient choose you as their PT? I have a wide variety of experience, ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. I have also worked with a wide variety of orthopedic and post surgical conditions. I also have experience in an Industrial setting with a Corporate Focus. My main goal is to help you meet yours, whether it’s improving your function, getting you back to work, or decreasing your overall pain.
What’s an interesting fact about yourself: I love frogs. Seriously, I collect them. I’m a sports nut

Why did you choose Physical Therapy as your profession? As a young athlete, I found the physical therapist role in the recovery of injury to be fascinating. What is more, the profession is ever changing and I am constantly learning innovative ways to provide quality care in today’s fast paced and high tech world.
Why WEST? Their longstanding history as a company and involvement in the community for 25 years speaks volumes. Small business survival within a very competitive market isn’t easy, particularly for a physical therapy company with the ever changing healthcare system, so they must be doing something right.
Why should a patient choose you as their PT? As a therapist, the patient is my top priority and I truly enjoy helping them overcome the adversities associated with physical injury and serving as an advocate.
What’s an interesting fact about yourself: The list of sports I have played in my lifetime: Soccer, Track, Football, Gymnastics, and Jujitsu. What can I say, I am constantly in motion!\
