Occupational & Industrial Orthopedic Center Consultation Services
Specialists at NYU Langone Occupational and Industrial Orthopedic Center help individuals and organizations prevent and manage workplace injury and disability, as well as early symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders such as low back and shoulder pain. Our scientists, educators, and clinicians have expertise in different aspects of musculoskeletal disorders and work-related injuries and provide clinical services and ergonomics consulting services, all under one roof.
Our clinical services include physical therapy, psychological services, stress management, medical services, and functional capacity evaluations. We also have a return to work program that addresses the many obstacles an individual who has been injured faces before resuming his or her everyday activities. Our patient-centered approach uses education and goal-oriented care to create a partnership between the provider and the patient, in which all patients are encouraged to become active participants in their care.
The ergonomics consulting services at our center are provided by a recognized panel of experts on work-related injury prevention and management, particularly work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Our team works closely with each client to develop feasible and practical solutions that benefit employees and organizations. Team members also serve as faculty in the Graduate Program in Ergonomics and Biomechanics at NYU.
Our ergonomics consulting services include a corporate ergonomics program, worksite accommodations, and product design and biomechanical analysis. We offer these services to individual clients and businesses in New York City. As consultants to industry, labor, and government organizations—including Google, the United Nations, and Con Edison—we have implemented numerous successful programs aimed at preventing injuries and disability in the workplace.
