Work injury prevention and rehabilitation since 1997
An extensive background in the rehabilitation of injured workers served as the inspiration for Ergo Solution since 1997. Assessment and treatments of all types of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) led to our mission of preventing such injuries.
Ergo Solution is a group of industrial physical therapists and board certified
ergonomists. They are medical professionals specially-trained in human biomechanics as it relates to musculo-skeletal function, work, injury, and disease. Their training emphasizes musculo-skeletal movement, posture and related orthopaedic problems, including ergonomics and human biomechanics. This specialty involves both physics and medical sciences: thus, the term "physical" therapist.
Ergonomic physical therapists go beyond a narrow focus on design engineering, to include additional strategies that improve work tolerance, decrease tissue damage, and increase repair of wear damage to working tissues. Our physical therapists have undergone the rigourous medical school-based physical therapy education, plus many years of orthopaedic experience managing work-related injury and disease.
Ongoing postgraduate education has emphasized advanced training in ergonomics and musculoskeletal injury care and prevention, including training from international ergonomics physical therapy authorities.
