Occupational therapists treat a wide range of work related injuries in the clinic, both traumatic injuries and cumulative trauma disorders. Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs) are the most common injuries seen by occupational therapists for the Workers’ Compensation population.
These injuries include:
Clinical syndromes such as tendon inflammations (tenosynovitis, epicondylitis, bursitis)
Nerve compression disorders (cubital tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome)
Other sprains/ strains associated with the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand
Upper extremity CTDs are most commonly the result of highly repetitive movements in conjunction with high grip/pinch forces and/or awkward postures with insufficient recovery time.
Work injuries result in substantial costs to the employer in terms of lost time, medical expenses, and indemnity. There is also a significant impact on the quality of life for the injured worker. Our highly skilled occupational therapists will work to make the patient feel better and get them back to work. Once back at work, Complete Rehabilitation Services works to assist with long term health solutions and continued productivity for the injured worker.
