Is Repetitive Stress Injury a problem for you or your company's employees? Is productivity down? Is anyone distracted by headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel pain or numbness in the hands?

We are the solution your company needs

According to the National Safety Council, the average work related injury costs a company $190,000 per year. You don't have to fall off a ladder to be injured at work. An ill-fitting work station can result in a life-long disability. Recent studies by New York State's Workman Compensation Program indicate that RSI instances are on the rise, and the injury now accounts for 61 percent of all workplace ailments. Is your company paying below or above the average cost?

How we can help:

  • Our  therapists have over 55 combined  years of hands-on experience working with human bio-mechanics, soft tissue injuries, their causes and how to heal them.
  • Like common ergonomists, we evaluate positional and postural relationships with the location of desks, chairs, computers, keyboard and mouse, etc.
  • Unlike common ergonomists, our therapists are able to identify problems based on body mechanics.
  • We can help with proper ergonomic design in your work environment, which is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders that develop over time and can lead to long-term disability.

We use our knowledge to resolve and our hands to heal because you and your employees deserve it.

How do you benefit?

  • You save money by reducing medical payments and equipment purchases.
  • Saving time through reduction of medical leaves.
  • Employees have improved work performance and an overall better quality of life.


"We are a local accounting office and during tax season our entire staff suffers from the effects of long hours working at their desks, handling computer input and analyzing documents. This past season we requested Shawn visit our office, spend time with each staff member, and make recommendations as to things they might do to reduce muscle strain.

"She did a great job handling each employee’s questions, making recommendations as to how they could modify their work stations and improve posture. Most of the recommendations related to adjusting the height of computer screens, keyboards, and purchasing footrests. The time she spent with our firm, and the minimal cost, was well worth the benefits received by our staff. They all felt appreciative of her guidance and found her suggestions made a difference in decreasing fatigue and muscle strain. We would highly recommend her to other firms where employees work regularly with computer equipment and telephones."
