When a worker is injured, we understand both the worker and the employer have questions, concerns and costs associated with the injury but so does the insurance company and the case manager assigned to the employee. At SafeWorks Illinois, we keep the lines of communication open with prompt and regular communication with injured workers, employers, physicians and insurance companies through all treatment phases.
We have been serving the Central Illinois market since 1985 and our program is well known within the legal and insurance community for our straight forward approach to providing credible Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) and Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) reports that are helpful in case closure and resolution.
Work Hardening and Conditioning
At the SafeWorks Illinois Return to Work Center, we design work conditioning and work hardening programs to restore the injured worker’s quality of life by improving flexibility, mobility, strength, endurance and tolerance of full-duty work tasks. In addition, we assist the psychological adaptation in coping with a work-related injury by applying a variety of treatments to this process.
Low Back Evaluations
SafeWorks Illinois offers a low back testing device to evaluate strength and mobility during rotation, flexion/extension, and lateral flexion. It measures range of motion, speed of movement, and effort generated by and individual moving against various loads. A low back evaluation can provide a quick and objective means to evaluate low back dysfunction clinically and objectively document test validity using a non-physiological indicator score.
