• The Rehabilitation Institute's industrial services program helps people return to work after an injury and educates employers about safe work environments.

    People admitted to the industrial services program have a medical diagnosis that limits their ability to work, such as multi-trauma, traumatic brain injury, burns, amputation, spinal cord injury, chronic low back pain, cumulative trauma injury, musculoskeletal dysfunction, or other major orthopaedic or neurological conditions.

    Industrial therapy may include:

    • Work hardening/conditioning
    • Simulation of work activities
    • Exercise activities designed to improve overall work tolerance
    • Education in body mechanics
    • Injury prevention education
    • Chronic pain management techniques

    • Education on body mechanics and injury prevention
    • Americans with Disabilities Act consultations
    • Ergonomics analysis
    • Job site analysis
    • Screenings and functional capacity evaluations
