Workers Compensation Physical Therapy

“Anyone can get injured on the job, and it’s important to know that a well-trained PT can help you recover and improve your confidence to take on tasks you performed before the injury.” 

– Jennifer Rutkowski, PT

Work Place Injuries

Injured workers are a lot like injured athletes; only the playing field is different. And like an athlete’s injury, doctors typically recommend physical therapy to treat a work injury. Our physical therapists determine current physical limitations and provide evidence-based treatment for improved endurance, flexibility, and strength. 

People who have been injured on the job have a unique set of circumstances.  An Excel physical therapist will develop a treatment plan that is specifically targeted for your circumstances and injury. Goals are created in your workers compensation Initial Evaluation, and our team of experts will help you achieve these goals.   

We are your coach and partner to enable a return to work efficiently and safely. Treatment may include manual therapy, joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise, stretching, and work simulation tasks geared toward your job duties. Physical therapy is a holistic treatment that often combines multiple treatment options for recovery. Improving function every day is what we do best!

  • We accept all workers’ compensation insurances
  • Provide extended hours for treatments, including early morning and evening appointments
  • Schedule you quickly, offering same day appointments when able
  • Communicate with involved shareholders in a worker compensation case on a regular basis for necessary updates

From the first time that I started therapy at Excel, I was not only treated like I was important, but also like all the staff really cared about my well-being. Both Sean and Kate provided challenging services to me that demonstrably improved my condition. I would highly recommend Excel for any of your PT needs.”
