“Employee Health Should Be An Investment, Not An Expense.”

The average cost of fixing an improperly designed workstation is $250. According to OSHA, however, the cost of not fixing a workstation, and an employee developing an Musculoskeletal Disorder MSD, can cost over $26,000.

"Liberty Mutual has noted a $3-$6 return for every $1 invested in safety and ergonomics. Any investment you make in your employees’ health and wellness will pay dividends for years to come in the form of improved productivity and reduced risk of workplace injuries."

At Defy Therapy & Wellness, treating our clients doesn’t stop at the clinic. We focus on preventative health in addition to focusing on the recovery process from pain and injury. Our team of ergonomic assessment specialists have extensive physiotherapy experience and can provide a comprehensive and progressive approach to employee wellness. Rather than insist on new furniture or expensive (and sometimes ineffective) ergonomic devices, we modify and optimize your employees’ existing workstations to improve comfort, functionality, and foster productivity.

As a part of our wellness initiative, we provide interactive corporate wellness workshops in various office settings, residential communities, gyms, and conference sites. Our programs include education and implementation of preventative exercises, individualized ergonomic assessments, workstation recommendations, and bespoke group physiotherapy classes.

Our programs include:

  • Education and implementation of preventative exercises
  • OSHA approved individualized ergonomic assessments
  • Workstation recommendations
  • Bespoke physiotherapy classes
  • In-office physiotherapy sessions


  • Foster workstation optimization
  • Increase productivity
  • Restoration and maintenance of employee’s mobility and function
  • Decreased turnover
  • Reduction in worker’s compensation claims

Call us today to schedule a 30-minute consultation to discuss ways our team can tailor a wellness program to your company’s specific needs.

Tara is a true professional as well as a very understanding, patient and kind PT. DEFY WAS AND IS A GAME CHANGER FOR ME. I HAVE REGAINED NOT JUST MY BALANCE BUT MY CONFIDENCE. I will recommend Defy to anyone, those who need help in balancing to prevent falls as well as those who have any Physical problems that can be treated with excellent Physical Therapy. Defy is five star all the way.
