Specialists at NYU Langone Occupational and Industrial Orthopedic Center provide tools to help organizations prevent workplace musculoskeletal injury and disability, as well as the symptoms they cause, such as low back and shoulder pain. Our scientists, educators, and clinicians have expertise in managing the physical, psychological, and work-related aspects of musculoskeletal disorders. These specialists provide treatment, research, education, and consultation services, all under one roof.
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 disability in the workplace. We combine therapeutic and medical technology with the expertise of specialists from NYU Langone Health.
At the Occupational and Industrial Orthopedic Center, organizations have access to complete medical and diagnostic services, physical therapy, pain and stress management, and ergonomic workplace evaluation and accommodations. Our clinical services are designed to return workers to their pre-injury work status and everyday activities. Our patient-centered approach uses education and goal-oriented care to create a partnership that empowers patients to become active participants in their care.
The Occupational and Industrial Orthopedic Center also houses the master’s and doctoral programs in ergonomics and biomechanics at NYU, where our experts train researchers and clinicians from around the world in our evidence-based model.
Our consulting services include a corporate ergonomics program, worksite accommodations, and product design and evaluation that can be used for hiring, promotion, reinstatement, and termination of job duties.
