Workplace lunch and learn
An hour-long workshop addressing good posture and how to attain it. We introduce concepts that can allow an employee to go back to their desk and re-organize their workspace for optimal ergonomics for their individual tasks.
Ergonomic Sweeps and Presentations
Our presentations and workshops about proper posture, ergonomics, are customized to the chairs and equipment you already have. Followed by 15-minute, individualized ergonomic evaluations.
Ergonomic Evaluations / Workflow Management
These 45-minute 1-on-1 evaluations are recommended for employees with extensive work injuries. Includes a 15-minute writeup with proper equipment ordering and 10-minute follow-up for installation. Employees and employers get a report of all measurements taken and all equipment ordered.
Strength & Conditiong
We started a strength and conditioning program as a request by our patients. After they finished their rehab, they kept getting injured at the gym or on the track, in the ring, at yoga, or even at their cross-fit box. We realized that although they were pain free, they still needed some more attention to make sure that they could get to the next level in their training.
Since, our clients have been setting PRs, entering into races and events that they never thought they would, and are more active without worrying about re-injuring themselves. Every session is tracked and recorded just like a physical therapy session, so we can measure your progress.
