Treatment

Individual or multiple outpatient services may be accessed to target specific rehabilitation needs and solutions. These might include one or more of the following:

Medical

Our physicians provide outpatient treatment for work-related injuries, motor vehicle injuries, as well as private health insurance beneficiaries. Treatments include medication management, limited procedures, and basic medical follow-up.

Psychological Assessment and Psychotherapy

Psychologists at NWOMC are trained to provide evidence based psychotherapy for a range of psychological and health-related conditions such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorders, somatization disorders, and adjustment issues.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists provide rehabilitative services to individuals with injuries and other conditions requiring rehabilitation in areas of daily living. Body mechanics, pacing, and simulation of work and home activities are the focuses of treatment. Work site ergonomic visits can also be arranged on an individual basis.

Biofeedback Therapy

A certified biofeedback practitioner can work with patients to learn self-regulation skills for management of various conditions including chronic headache, chronic low back pain, and anxiety. Patients learn to control physiological responses to stress through feedback provided by a computer that monitors the individual’s physical functioning, such as muscle tension, respiration, and finger surface temperature.

Physical Therapy

Outpatient physical therapy services are offered at NWOMC, and provide patients with state-of-the-art treatments for injury rehabilitation. Active modalities of treatment are the focus, providing patients with tools to generalize to their own home exercise programs. However, modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, TENS units, and passive stretching are provided in appropriate cases.
