At DPT On-Site, our therapists look through a different lens than do safety and ergo folks yet collaboratively, it is a powerful combination and recipe for success. We look at the mechanism of injury and develop prevention programs based on that factor. We work to identify the underlying cause of an injury and design sustainable solutions to mitigate and eliminate the risk. Collaboratively with your team, we develop a road map for training and cultural change that will show measurable reductions in injuries.
Our therapists gain a deep understanding of each job position, the operating conditions of the job, the work styles of the employees and the physical requirements needed to perform their job at peak capacity. We then provide technical instruction on form and function to discern, education and eliminate job risk.

On-Site Physical Therapy
These services are provided by a musculoskeletal expert, a physical therapist. Physical therapists are able to make PT diagnosis and have a much greater scope of education allowing a solid triage diagnosis. An Athletic Trainer license does not allow them to perform a physical therapy evaluation or a musculoskeletal diagnosis. The literature shows that besides orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists are the most accurate in diagnosing musculoskeletal injuries. Athletic Trainers do not have the education in ergonomics to be able to address opportunities which might present during an early intervention.
The therapist’s expertise on musculoskeletal injuries combined with the safety team’s knowledge is a powerful combination.
Doctors of Physical Therapy saves our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on workers’ compensation, healthcare and related costs.
