Employers have a vested interest in maintaining a healthy workforce to maximize productivity and manage costs. This is why many companies hire physical therapists to develop programs and documentation they can implement to not only get injured employees back to work in a timely and effective manner, but also to prevent injuries to workers in the first place. Consulting therapists can also assess an employer’s work environment and how tasks are completed to recommend any changes to ergonomics that may reduce risk of injury, especially during repetitive movements. The companies that appear in this section can help physical therapists and physical therapy clinics offer these types of services to expand their clientele and revenue potential.
