Work Injury Rehab Bend Program Services
Acute Work Injury Rehabilitation Bend
With 10 convenient locations in Central Oregon and over 35 clinicians in various specialties, Rebound is prepared to handle an injured worker’s rehabilitation very effectively in the acute phase of injury or post-operatively. Our providers include Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Hand Therapists, and Acupuncturists who are trained to expertly handle acute work injuries in order and get them on their way to a fast recovery.
Work Conditioning – Work Readiness Phase
Once beyond the acute phase, an injured worker is prepared for return to work through specific exercise as it relates to their injury and their job duties. This includes strengthening, conditioning, improving mobility and education on body mechanics and injury prevention so they can safely return to work.
At Rebound Physical Therapy we are dedicated to assisting the injured worker return to their job safely, with a decreased risk for re-injury. Our work hardening program is a highly structured, goal oriented treatment program that improves work related functional abilities, with a skilled approach of graded exercise, activities, and education.

Physical Capacity / Work Evaluations Bend
Physical Capacity Evaluation (PCE) and Work Capacity Evaluation (WCE) are an essential evaluation tool for determining readiness to return to work after injury, performing pre-employment/post-offer screenings, monitoring progress throughout industrial rehabilitation, and performing goal-setting/treatment planning for industrial rehabilitation. Under Oregon Workers’ Compensation, a PCE II is a 2-4 hour test and a WCE is a 4+ hour test. Rebound Physical Therapy Bend uses the Ergo-Science Work Capacity Evaluation System because it provides the most objective, consistent and accurate observation-based testing and offers distinct advantages to intuitive or diagnosis-based decision-making.
- The Ergo-Science Work Capacity Evaluation is the only work-capacity assessment that has both reliability and validity research which supports the entire test, as well as each individual test item.
- Ergo-Science Assessment can be used for whole-body focus, or UE focused testing. Cardiovascular parameters can also be assessed.
- Up to 36 tasks can be assessed including Endurance, Dynamic Strength, Positional Tolerance, and Mobility parameters.
- Test result reports can be provided in graph or written format. Rehabilitation, workplace recommendations can also be provided upon request. The PCE / WCE report will be completed and sent to the referring provider within 7 days.
- All testing is done in a safe, environmentally controlled setting.
To schedule a PCE II or WCE please call Rebound Physical Therapy Bend North’s work injury rehab facility at 541-323-5864.
