Pre-employment screenings are becoming more commonplace for jobs that require physical activity. Our physical therapists can help you with the special tests required by some companies, to include PATS or Physical Abilities Tests. These tests typically check an individual’s physical abilities such as strength, muscular flexibility, and stamina, as well as specific muscle tension tests to check your ability to push, pull, lift and grip. Our physical therapists may also check to ensure the health of your spine and joints.
Who is a good candidate for Pre-Employment Screenings?
Anyone who is applying for a job that involves physical activity or labor. Your possible future employer will alert you if you need to have a pre-employment screening before they make a decision on hiring you. You can seek out this screening at the physical therapy practice of your choosing, without a referral.
How long does the Pre-Employment Screening take?
Depending on the extent of the testing required, your screening could take anywhere between one and three hours.
