Functional Baseline Testing is a method by which Physical Therapists may address functional activities in workers' compensation patients. This online program will outline a procedure the therapist may provide as an alternative to Work Hardening.

Work Hardening is a treatment medium thought of by many insurance companies and physicians as offering questionable return to work results and a waste of time and money. Further, it is thought of by many therapists as increasingly fraught with reimbursement issues, expensive equipment, and wasted square footage.

As a remedy to this problem, the course recipient will learn how to perform Functional Baseline Testing and Functional Rehabilitation in a standard PT clinic environment with a minimum investment in testing equipment.
