Your challenge(s) is our solution.

The best way to avoid worker’s compensation claims is to ensure that employees have the physical capacity to perform their job, and they are not asked for greater physical ability than they can provide. Making sure that employees are adequately suited for the job at hand can greatly reduce the risk of injury.

What are Twin Boro’s prevention techniques?

  • 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 Twin Boro’s clinicians 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

Twin Boro Work Care operates with an outcome-based philosophy. Providing the highest quality of care while managing an injury claim to keep the cost to employers low is the key to obtaining a positive result.

Components of successful injury management:

  • Customized return-to-work programs– are treatment plans that are designed to suit the specific needs of workers in designated industries so that patients can get back on the job more efficiently.
  • 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.

An FCE is an objective, comprehensive, performance-based assessment that determines an employee’s functional ability to perform essential duties in the workplace or activities of daily living and leisure. This evaluation assesses an individual’s physical ability relative to a specific injury or illness. An FCE is an important tool to determine functional levels for a safe return-to-work following an injury.

Components of an FCE:

  • Patient’s self-described level of pain and disability obtained by answering a few questions
  • Detailed medical history
  • Examination of musculoskeletal system
  • Material handling tests to evaluate ability to lift, carry, push, and pull
  • Movement tests to evaluate ability to walk, reach, climb, and level of dexterity
  • Positional tolerance tests to evaluate ability to stand and sit
  • Evaluation of aerobic capacity
  • Material, movement, or positional tests customized to the patient’s industry
  • Analysis of information including patients’ level of effort
  • Report that draws conclusions about the patient’s abilities based on the above evaluations

“The treatment and tips on how to get around on my prosthetic leg has made all aspects of daily life possible.”

John

"I feel that the physical therapy at the Union office is above and beyond the best that I have ever received. They helped me so much and I hope to return as a visitor and utilize their equipment when I am fully recovered from surgery. Thank you Nicole, Elaine and the entire staff for always going the extra mile to make sure I received treatment. Never had a problem with billing either. I have been to a few PT facilities and highly recommend Twin Boro!"

"Twin Boro Piscataway/South Plainfield is great! I was treated for occipital neuralgia and posture issues. Aside from performing wonderful treatment, everybody there is super friendly and accommodating (you will always be greeted with a smile) and also very focused and helpful! Bri is a knowledgable and experienced physical therapist who is not only a great PT, but also one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. Her pacing with my various exercises was perfect, as she pushed me, but not to any point that was uncomfortable for me. I enjoyed the variety of exercises and treatments, from heat and stim to exercises with weights and stretch bands. I thoroughly enjoyed going in 3 times a week to be treated by Bri. It is clear that she cares about and wants the best for her patients, with her passion and expertise for physical therapy! My posture has gotten much better and the headaches and pain I used to experience have completely disappeared after 3 months at Twin Boro. 5/5 I would recommend Twin Boro Piscataway/South Plainfield to anyone seeking physical therapy."

"After my back surgery my doctor wanted me for physical therapy. He suggested Twin Boro Physical Therapy as one of the locations to go to. I checked out all the locations in the area and decided to go to Twin Boro. I stopped by on a Saturday but they were closed. Someone was at the desk doing paperwork and gave me all the information that i needed to fill out. She put the paperwork through and gave me a schedule to return on Monday for my first visit.The therapist ( Andrew ) examined me an put me through a series of work outs three times a week along with his daily exam. As each exercise became easier I was given something a little harder. They were slowly building up the strength in my lower back, core, legs and arms. After years of back pain I am now able to begin to get back to a normal life. I had a chance to work with other therapist there, they are all fantastic and there to help us return to a healthy life. The entire staff is was a pleasure to work with. They listen to what you have to say and and pay attention to what you said. I looked forward to going there, the staff was caring, kind and funny at times. I would highly recommend Twin Boro for physical therapy."
