Industrial Rehabilitation

The Gundersen Industrial Rehabilitation Center (IRC) offers you a multidisciplinary approach to treatment of your employees including industrial rehabilitation, physical therapy and hand therapy. We can assist you in reducing your workers’ compensation costs through education and training, job analysis and effective rehabilitation. Our industrial therapists have worked with hundreds of employers in the Coulee Region—over the more than 30 years of the program’s existence—to enhance worksite wellness and return employees to the workplace as quickly as possible.

Employers can contract with the IRC to conduct the following services:

  • Worksite assessments measuring an employee’s ability to work
  • Pre-work screenings and fitness for duty evaluations to ensure that a worker can meet the physical demands of a job
  • Job demand analysis to quantify essential job functions

Physicians and other professionals can refer someone to the IRC for the following services:

  • Functional conditioning for general strengthening in a goal-oriented treatment program designed to improve strength, endurance and flexibility
  • Work hardening, either in our facility or on-site, to utilize transitional tasks to maximize potential for productivity
  • Functional capacity evaluations to provide insight to overall abilities
  • Body mechanics training designed to teach the fundamentals of body alignment to minimize the risk of continued or future injuries
  • Job evaluations to identify physical demands of the job, and if needed, possible ergonomic modifications
