Early Symptom Intervention
What is an Early Symptom Intervention?
Early Symptom Intervention, ESI, is a program designed to help improve the employee’s health by focusing onalleviating the first signs of musculoskeletal discomforts. Based on OSHA guidelines, the ESI program uses ice, heat,massage, non-rigid support, and education to address conditions, including but not limited to sprains and strains, muscletightness, soreness and fatigue. ESI can be provided at one of our clinics or on-site with an employer
What are the benefits of ESI in the occupational setting?
