Speech Therapy | Bloomer WI | Colfax WI

Healthy employees are productive employees. Workers' compensation costs and health insurance costs directly impact any company's bottom line. Midwest Physical Therapy has a number of programs available to reduce both workers' compensation costs as well as health insurance costs. Our programs can decrease a company's lost or restricted work days, decrease OSHA recordables, and ultimately reduce cost. At the same time, these programs prevent injuries to employees or improve injury outcomes. A win-win for the employer and employee!

Industry Facts

  • Two primary areas of increasing expenses for employers are workers' compensation and health insurance.
  • One low back injury that leads to surgery costs $150,000.
