About Industrial Rehabilitation: Our Industrial Rehabilitation clinic in Palmer, Alaska, offers high quality care to injured workers by creating a rehabilitation program that is tailored to the individual’s job.

Excel Physical Therapy Work Hardening Program: A highly structured, goal oriented treatment program that improves work related functional abilities. We provide a skilled approach of graded exercise activities and education. It is a 4-6 week program attended 4-8 hours a day. It includes a progressive exercise program, graded job simulation activities, and patient education on injury prevention. It helps participants resume appropriate work behaviors such as attendance and punctuality.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE): The FCE process consists of an evaluation which documents the patient’s current ability to perform work from a physical, medical, behavioral, and ergonomics perspective. It is a process which should be included on every patient who has sustained a job related injury prior to returning to work. The FCE can be ordered by physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse case managers, chiropractors and other medical professionals.
