Injured workers are much more likely to undergo successful rehabilitation and return to work if rehabilitation is started soon after the injury. A new medical facility in Philadelphia is designed to help them.

PR9.NET April 03, 2008 - Philadelphia, PA - No one expects to experience an injury on the job. However, the most recent statistics from the National Bureau of Labor Statistics show that on-the-job injuries occur at a rate of 6.3 cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers.

According to the PA Dept. of Labor approximately 85,000 people are injured each year, on the job in Pennsylvania.

Unionized workers sustain the majority of work-related injuries because they often work in the most hazardous of work environments. These labor unions include:

- Union Iron Workers
- Masons
- Commercial Workers Union
- Electrical Workers Union
- Industrial Workers of the World
- Plumbers & Fitters Union
- United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners
- Welders
- Bridge Workers

Work injuries range from improper lifting, falling, sitting improperly, repetitive stress or other traumas. Back injuries are the number one work-related injury in the United States.

Workers Compensation plans show that more than twice as many work injury claims are made for back injuries than any other type of injury. Studies have shown 85% of the population will experience disabling back pain at least once during their lives.

According to the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO): "Injured workers are much more likely to undergo successful rehabilitation and return to work if rehabilitation is started soon after the injury."

This expedited therapy reduces not only the cost of rehabilitation but also lost productivity. Unfortunately, the GAO also found that less than 17% of injured workers are referred to rehabilitation within seven months. Furthermore, approximately 50% wait three years before they are referred.

Located in Northeast Philadelphia, Transplex Center for Medicine and Rehabilitation provides Philadelphia injured workers with medical, physical therapy and rehabilitation all under one roof.

With our team approach to treating injuries, we believe rehabilitation starts the day of the injury, and the treatment is not completed until the employee is back to work with fully restored function. Transplex specializes in helping patients who have had a difficult time recovering and who suffer from chronic pain.

If you have been in an accident, or had a work-related injury, rely on Transplex Center for Medicine and Rehabilitation of your care.
