Work Rehabilitation


Your Partner in Recovery

We know that recovering from injuries sustained at the workplace can take a toll not just on your body but on your mind too. Questions may swirl about whether you will ever be able to move through the world the way you did before your injury. At React Physical Therapy, our goal is to become a partner in your recovery and help you to regain your previous level of function when possible. Our whole body approach will address your current issues and help make you stronger than ever.


What To Expect

  • We treat Worker’s Compensation patients at all React Physical Therapy locations.
  • Before you even come in, we will contact your insurance company to determine eligibility and coverage for therapy services.
  • In order to verify coverage, you will need to provide us with the insurance company’s name, address, phone number, your claim number, attorney contact info (if applicable), and date of injury in order for us to schedule your appointment. We might also need other documentation such as the script from your doctor and information regarding your private insurance policy. We accept all Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle Accident insurances.
  • We will explain your benefits to you and be available to answer any questions along the way.

The Bottom Line

“If you are looking for a peak performance or serious healing this a place to go to. It’s a fantastic team of professionals that work really well together. After a thorough evaluation of your personal therapeutical needs they will come up with a customized plan. You just need to be committed and keep showing up at least once a week and the results will be there within a few weeks if not before.”

– Robert K.

“This is a special place. My life would be much different if I hadn’t found React. Probably a life of limitations and pain pills. Their techniques combined with one on one time with trained professionals and some hard work will enable the change you desire. I highly recommend anyone with pain to setup time. You don’t have to live in pain.”

– Jett M.

“As a competitive triathlete, React in the West Loop over the years has gotten me through two meniscus tears and now a recent rotator cuff issue. The staff and facilities are outstanding and along with getting me healthy, I appreciate the time educating me on what exercises I should do to remain injury free. Both Michele Schultz and Charles Queano are highly recommended and they really care about your well being.”

– Thomas A.

“Michele is seriously the best and the main reason I keep coming back to React. I go to React on a weekly basis for a chronic shoulder injury and I always leave feeling so much better than when I came in. Throughout our time together Michele has encouraged me to try a bunch of different exercises, stretches and even treatment options. Michele thought I might benefit from dry needling so she introduced me to Andrew who is also awesome. Can’t say enough good things about working with her, she truly is the best.”

– Danielle P.

“I am so indebted to React. For so long, having pain in my shoulder was so normal, I didn’t even think about it. The first time I woke up and walked around for hours before realizing I wasn’t in pain was amazing. I can’t thank them enough for their detailed, careful, and hard work to fix me up.”

– Emily B.

“For the past 2-3 years I had been experiencing right leg pain, back pain, and a slew of other issues. A friend of mine referred me to React and I’m truly amazed by my progress. A few months later and I’m now 100% healed. If you have imbalances, flexibility issues, mobility issues, call React.”

– Jordan T.

“What Dave did to me in 3 weeks was deemed “night and day” by my local athletic doctor. He let me stay after and train for hours after my appointment. He showed personal care in my well being and answered every question I threw his way. I’m still not 100 percent, but I continue to get stronger and more agile by the day. Dave educated me about my body and I’m now pursuing my goal to get back on the ice.”

– Kyle Lee, Prospective Athlete, Boston College

“A silver medal for your rehabbed athlete! There was a lot of chop in the water but my shoulder held up and I had a good swim, until a guy kicked me in the face and left me with a nice shiner. My bike time was the fastest I have ever done at the World Championships and my run was the slowest I have ever done at the World Championships. Looks like my shoulder had more impact on my legs than my arms! But I was thrilled to cross the finish line, a feat I never would have accomplished without the wonderful care I received from all of you!”

– Elizabeth Brackett

“The biggest change is explosiveness and everything lined up before the game…[Having] all my joints lined up and muscles activated. It allows me to be more explosive out there on the field and that’s important at a skill position as a running back.”

– Matt Forte, ESPN Chicago (2011)

Work Conditioning

Based on the results of your FCE, your therapist, doctor, or employer might recommend Work Conditioning or Work Hardening. During both Work Conditioning and Work Hardening, your therapist will give you tasks that mimic the tasks of your typical workday to prepare you to get back to work.

Work Conditioning typically consists of one-hour sessions up to five times a week, depending on your needs. Work Hardening would also be up to five times a week but would be more intense sessions lasting up to four or five hours.
