Injuries don’t just happen during accidents. They often stem from the long-term effects of daily work activities that strain our muscles, tendons, nerves and joints. Between 1997 and 2005, U.S. employees missed 23.7 million work days due to Work-related Musculoskeletal Injuries (WMSDs). The team at St. Luke’s works with individuals and businesses to ensure that workplace hazards and stressful work tasks don’t take a negative toll on the body. By identifying aggravating situations, our therapists provide ergonomic recommendations and solutions for redesigning workspace and job tasks.
With services like Ergonomic Worksite Evaluations, Ergonomic Workstation Adjustments, Job Modification and Pre-Job Accommodations, Functional Employment Testing and Ergonomic Training, Education and In-services, our therapists evaluate and ease the workday for employees across industries.
