Physical and Occupational Therapy

The Work Center operates with an exclusive focus on rehabilitating work-related injuries. By handling only workers' compensation cases, we are better able to serve our target audience. Unlike other forms of therapy, industrial rehabilitation requires job-specific, targeted treatment for the worker as a whole- both physically and psychologically. The Work Center is the only facility in St. Louis that focuses exclusively on physical and occupational therapy for work-related injuries.

The Work Center's occupational therapy rehabilitation programs are available to provide modalities for symptom management, as well as therapeutic exercise to enhance strength and range of motion in affected areas. A full circuit of state-of-the-art conditioning equipment is utilized to improve isolated muscular weakness and general muscular endurance. This equipment is used in conjunction with work hardening or independently, depending on the worker's needs. The equipment used at all 8 of the Work Center's industrial rehabilitation facilities is designed specifically for helping injured workers recover, and get back on the job quickly and safely.
