Safety & Injury Prevention
Our safety and injury prevention coaches focus on helping individuals prevent and manage injuries. Through education, guidance, and support, our coaches teach people how to identify and manage risk factors, recognize and respond to signs of injury, and develop strategies to prevent re-injury. We deliver a holistic approach that encompasses physical, psychological, wellbeing and environmental aspects of safety and injury prevention.
Our coaches provide education on the importance of healthy lifestyle choices, injury prevention techniques, and how to effectively manage an injury. They also work with individuals on developing prevention strategies and provide resources to help them make lifestyle changes that reduce their risk of injury. In addition, our coaches will provide personalized advice and support to help people develop and maintain healthy habits that reduce their risk of injury.
