Work Injury Prevention


How many times have you said to yourself "I wish it didn't hurt to do this job?" Have you heard your employees or coworkers complain of discomfort with their neck, back, shoulders, arms or hands while they are at work?

"All I do is sit at a desk and use a computer, so why am I hurting?"

"I know I am probably lifting this the wrong way, but so far it's not bothering me, so I guess I'm alright."

Does any or all of this sound familiar? There is no one more qualified to address these problems than a physical therapist. Everyday, physical therapists educate patients about how their bodies work and how to care for the working body. This knowledge is applied to the workplace to help prevent injuries and keep people comfortable while they are working.
