Many of our patients have discovered that their co-workers too could benefit from physical therapy and actually have ended up referring them to us.
Upon invitation, we have visited several employers in the neighborhood to educate their co-workers on the benefits of physical therapy by providing the following complimentary services.
- Work Postural Alignment Training
- Workstation Stretch Exercise Education
- Health Fair Attendance
- 20-minute Consultation
If any of these services could benefit your co-workers and colleagues, then please connect us with a contact in your Human Resources Department. We’ll take it from there.
These are some of our most recent visits.
