Educational Training Programs are designed as injury prevention programs. They are presented as a combination of slides, lecture, demonstration and audience participation.
BENEFITS OF EDUCATION PROGRAMS

The objective of the Education Programs is to establish the responsibility of avoiding injury on the individual worker. This message is delivered with a content that includes the following:
- Review of normal anatomy and physiology
- Overview of mechanisms of injury and pathological conditions
- The importance of physical fitness as it relates to reducing risk of injury
The program can be customized to any length of time. This program can be done on-site with the ideal class size between 10-30 people.
A variety of topics are available. A custom presentation based on your specific needs can be developed as well. An on-site visit can be included to take photos of job tasks and incorporate them as slides into your custom program.
Topic options include, but not limited to, functional ergonomics-specific to the application of the demands of the job tasks, material handling, aging workforce, best practices, maintaining a healthy back and stretching.
A “managers’ class” or “train the trainer class” is available with a slightly different emphasis.
Excel Physical Therapy can also perform job assessment/risk evaluations.
