How does Brielle Orthopedics help?

Occupational Therapists work with orthopedic surgeons to promote the best-possible recovery outcome for patients who have had surgery due to trauma, injury, or disease. These specialists provide a variety of injury management and prevention services to help workers get back on the job.

Injury Management

  • Acute treatments – are physical and occupational therapy techniques to reduce inflammation, establish early mobilization, and institute an exercise routine.
  • Post-acute treatments – are physical and occupational therapy techniques to improve flexibility, strength, and conditioning.
  • Work conditioning programs – are designed to restore an employee’s physical capacity and function by focusing on endurance, range of motion, and motor control.
  • Work hardening programs – restore the physical, behavioral, and vocational function of injured employees using real and simulated work activities to improve productivity, safety, levels of physical tolerance, and ameliorate risky behaviors.
  • Functional capacity evaluations (FCE) – are assessments that determine employee’s ability to perform on the job or during everyday tasks with regard to a specific injury or illness that might impede their function.

Injury Prevention

  • Post-offer and pre-placement testing – these tests help establish a baseline of ability so that employers know what their workers are capable of and can tailor tasks accordingly to avoid workplace injuries.
  • Ergonomic work site analysis – is an assessment of specific work environments or job tasks for various risk factors so that the workplace can be customized to promote worker safety and performance.
  • Injury prevention education training – the rehabilitation experts at Twin Boro can provide a variety of courses and seminars on site to help educate employees about workplace safety, tailored to specific industries and job tasks.
  • Functional job analysis – is a way of evaluating occupational information to draw conclusions about the abilities of workers to perform tasks necessary for their specific position.
  • Job description analysis – this review of the requirements of a job and work performed allows Brielle Orthopaedics’ physicians to evaluate the physical requirements of a specific job to determine if a worker who experiences a diminished level of capacity is able to perform the job with, or without accommodations.
