Injury and Illness Management
When Injuries Occur
Initial treatment with return to work planning for insured workers.
Follow-up care after injuries occur to manage costs and reduce absenteeism.
In the event of an accident, illness or exposure after clinic hours, our emergency department provides care with an occupational focus for all of our clients.
Occupational Health Services
We provide competent occupational health professionals trained to provide injury treatment to your workers with a strategy focused on early return to work, cost containment and treatment outcomes in compliance with the American College of Occupational Medicine.
Fast, efficient care is the goal of our service.
Our knowledgeable and professional staff provides hands-on care to injured workers. We use National Treatment Standards to document our outcomes and value of services.
Back to Work
We provide the injured worker with modified work plans with clear work restrictions so the employer can safely assign the employee to an appropriate modified work assignment.
Provided in Truckee, Tahoe City, and Incline Village, physical therapy is often an integral part of treatment. Services are proactive, focusing on patient education, training and work applications.
Our programs can help with legal compliance, creating a safe workplace, and can assist in the hiring and placement of your potential staff. We can help you make state and federal laws work for your company and staff.
