consists of watching an individual in their work environment, and making injury-preventing
recommendations. By observing the client in his/her specific space, we can determine

the physical work space, or to the way the individual does his/her work through
proper body mechanics education. In addition, we offer vehicle assessments for companies
with sales forces or other workers who require significant time in vehicles. Kessler

appropriate vehicle choices and educating workers on the use of vehicle options
as well as best practices on positioning and movement patterns.
We understand the complicated needs of our patients involved in motor vehicle accidents.
