Industrial Medicine

For both small and large industrial companies, one of the biggest issues is lost work time due to injury. Well, Access Physical Therapy is here to help. The talented staff at Access PT realized what a serious issue this is for small and big companies, alike. Access PT partnered with DSI Work Solutions to bring you a rehabilitative program to significantly reduce your healthcare cost and increase your bottom line. The program is centered towards a safer work environment for your employees and a quick return to work with a rehabilitation program centered towards returning to the workforce.

The program is simple! First, one of our industrial rehab therapists will come assess your needs as an employer and analyze the job site. Next, we can set up a plan to meet functional job descriptions, ergonomic needs, educational and training needs. It extremely important that the job descriptions clearly outline the essential functions of the job. We will design job function tests, compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, that can be used for post-offer testing and return to work testing, alike. We will educate and train workers to perform their jobs safely and efficiently, while providing onsite and offsite injury management and rehabilitation. As a result you will see your workers return safely to their jobs with the modifications needed as well as transition employees to other positions or areas when their abilities change.

In physically demanding jobs, it is so important to make sure your employees are executing the correct way to maximize results and minimize damage to their health. By implementing this program you will see a dramatic difference in the way your employees work and how often they will need to stop working. This service can be offered to any company in the Hudson Valley, Northern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania areas. For more information on this program and how we can help your company out, please email Lori Schneider, PT, MS, DPT at or visit our website at
