What Is Employee Injury Prevention?

In addition to workplace injury treatment, Concentra offers programs and training that can help prevent employee injuries in general. Concentra physical therapists (PTs) and certified athletic trainers (ATCs) can teach employees how to improve their overall and workplace health. They can do this through exercise programs and classes on proper warm-up and stretching routines before work, the best lifting techniques, back injury prevention, and ergonomics (making the workplace more productive by reducing muscle fatigue). Doing this can also help prevent cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) with ergonomic evaluations and a functional job site analysis (ADApt) to optimize your work environment and minimize injury risk factors.
