IA training can be used as part of Doctors of Physical Therapy’s On-Site program or as a stand-alone plan.

  • This training program is a guide to help change the culture toward safe work styles and daily stretching activities.
  • The IA program is designed to educate employees in proper body mechanics to help avoid injuries, and also helps to avoid or reduce neck, back and shoulder pain throughout their lifetime.
  • Team members will not only be given the tools to improve their physical health and performance, but they also receive training to utilize proper body mechanics to avoid future injuries and become safer workers.
  • DPT’s goal is to improve team members’ physical abilities, which will improve their endurance, so they work safely.
