Industrial Rehabilitation

Illnesses or accidents can severely disrupt your ability to work. Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) helps you get back to your job as quickly as possible with a personalized industrial rehabilitation program and dedicated facilities designed to mimic your workplace.

Accidents at work can lead to serious injuries, disrupting all aspects of your normal life — including your ability to earn a living. At LVHN, we understand how important it is to get back to work quickly, and that’s our goal. We help you get back in top shape as fast as possible with personalized industrial rehabilitation.

An injury at work or workplace accident that causes fractures, concussion or back pain can leave you wondering whether you’ll ever be able to return to your job. Our industrial rehabilitation program helps you regain the ability to perform your daily, work-related tasks through a customized treatment plan that addresses your needs.

We use specific measures, like functional capacity evaluations, to determine when it’s safe for you to return to work. If needed, our rehabilitation experts recommend changes to your workplace to help you work more efficiently and with less risk of re-injury.

Dedicated facilities to get you back to work

Our industrial rehabilitation program takes place in dedicated facilities designed to mimic your workspace. We help you relearn how to perform your daily work functions with practice, using objects you come in contact with while performing your job.

Comprehensive care team

Your care team consists of specialists with expertise in physical therapy and occupational therapy (therapy that focuses on helping you accomplish the activities needed for daily living like getting dressed). We work together to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.
