Employers pay more than 15 to 20 billion dollars in workers’ compensation costs each year. Eighty (80) percent of workplace injuries are due to worker habits and more than half are musculoskeletal (sprains and strains) in nature.
The main objective of the VibrantCare Rehabilitation’s WorkSiteSolutions program is to team with workers’ compensation professionals to reduce the frequency and severity of injuries while also achieving the highest levels of employee functionality.
From construction companies to aircraft manufactures to distribution centers to municipalities to movie production companies and all the industries in between; VibrantCare works with all types of national, regional and local companies.
Our specially trained staff creates an individual and cost effective treatment plan for every patient in our outpatient facilities and maintains consist contact with our workers’ compensation colleagues through our internal case management department. We also provide this same individual attention in our on-site prevention and management programs.
