The industrial worker or those involved in military tactical units , whose occupation requires physical effort for sustained periods during the day, is a unique type of athlete. These athletes have physically demanding jobs that require lifting, climbing, pushing, pulling and twisting. And their fitness has a direct bearing on the productivity and competitiveness their employer.
At ELEVATE Physical Therapy Fitness and Performance we believe it’s important to take a holistic approach to getting and keeping these “industrial athletes” in peak condition, from preventing injuries to treating injuries. There are multiple benefits to a comprehensive program. Clients gain improved flexibility, higher energy levels, a more positive outlook, greater resistance to injury and disease and an enhanced ability to handle stress on and off the job. They receive the tools to recover more quickly if an injury occurs.
Work hardening, strength and conditioning can reduce the number of work-related injuries sustained, reduce the severity of those injuries, and reduce Workers’ Comp rates.
We are dedicated to developing programming to fit the needs of your company and your employees. We analyze the physical demands of the employees’ jobs and design group-style exercise programs. The overall work demands of a crew and each individual in the crew are reviewed and then a customized conditioning program is created. Program exercises focus on endurance, balance, flexibility and stability.
