Built to meet the needs of the workplace, Apex Comprehensive Occupational Management and Prevention (ACOMP®) is a full-spectrum industrial strength program that takes a revolutionary approach to workers’ compensation claims. At ApexNetwork Physical Therapy®, we address every aspect from prevention to injury resolution.
Our facilities have warehouse environments, allowing for unlimited job simulations and work-specific tasks. If a worker’s job requires him or her to handle truck tires, push or pull pallet jacks, or shovel coal, you can bet that we will be able to simulate the exact task at hand.
We invite you to get to know us. Give us a call and come for a visit. Watch us in action and see for yourself how ACOMP® can make a positive impact on your bottom line.

Accidents happen. There’s certainly no denying it. But with ACOMP® in your toolbox, the frequency and severity of workers’ comp claims can be dramatically reduced. We target injuries with a prevention-first attitude. This is an approach that takes both the work environment and performance into consideration.
Injury-proof your workplace – We assess your workplace for risk and perform thorough jobsite analysis. This documents the job’s physical requirements, which is a big factor in determining what is necessary to get the patient back to work and reducing lost work time.
Employment testing – We use objective testing and ADA-compliant protocols to assure that a worker can perform the essential job functions of a given job. If they have pre-existing conditions or are not fit to perform the work, we will let you know. This can effectively reduce both fraudulent claims and the incidence of workplace injuries.
Warm up to reduce injuries – We develop, implement, and manage stretching programs based on the requirements of each specific job. Unlike most, ACOMP® focuses on muscle groups taxed during work. For those transitioning into repetitive or heavy work-related activities, ACOMP® develops custom programs to strengthen muscles and increase endurance.
At times, physical therapy isn’t enough to return a worker to full duty. A work hardening or conditioning program may be just what the doctor ordered. Our work conditioning programs are designed to increase strength and improve physical condition. Our work hardening programs take conditioning a step further by using a specific progression of work-related tasks to improve functional capabilities.
Throughout the sessions lasting up to 4 to 8 hours a day, 3 to 5 days a week, the worker is taken through a series of progressively demanding work-related activities with the goal of returning to full duty.
These are assessments for workers who have suffered injuries that could affect their employment opportunities. The worker’s ability to perform work and their physical tolerance to a variety of real and/or simulated work activities are measured.
At ApexNetwork Physical Therapy®, our FCEs are second to none. They incorporate the strengths of many different peer-reviewed, research-based models and avoid the weaknesses of an increasingly large number of FCEs, namely those that are reliant upon computer-generated data. Our FCEs identify behavioral obstacles delaying the return to work process with detailed musculoskeletal evaluation, including material and non—material handling tests, and standardized assessments to determine impairment.
