McLeod Loris Seacoast now offers Industrial Rehabilitation

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - McLeod Loris Seacoast is pleased to introduce their Industrial Rehabilitation service. It is designed to meet the needs of both recovering workers and their employers by specializing in the rehabilitation of injured workers.

"Our team of highly trained, dedicated therapists evaluate and treat injured workers in an effort to help them return to work as quickly and safely as possible," said Scott Montgomery, Director of Rehabilitative Services for McLeod Loris Seacoast. "Injured workers are assessed and an individualized treatment plan is developed based on the specific needs of the patient."

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is conducted for each patient and includes the medical and injury history of the patient, a musculoskeletal assessment and functional testing. Functional tests may include lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling, as well as tests for bending, reaching climbing, crawling, kneeling, squatting and balancing. The results of these tests allow the therapists to determine the injured worker's rehabilitation needs and develop a specialized regimen.

Physicians, rehabilitation professionals and case managers work together throughout the rehabilitation process to assist the worker in safely returning to work.
