Sound Physical Therapy in collaboration with the Seattle Fire Fighter Union IAFF Local 27 and the Seattle Fire Fighter Healthcare Trust is offering 2 different programs to address fire fighter injury risk: The Physical Therapy Injury Prevention Program (PTIPP) and the Physical Therapy for Recruit School Program (PTRSP).
Fire fighters at are higher risk for injury than average workers due to the physical demands of their job duties and the training required to be ready for the variety of work conditions and activities they encounter.
We consider the physical demands of working as a firefighter comparable to those of a high-level athlete. Many firefighters are devoted to regular fitness activities to reduce the risk of injury but still experience injuries on the job or outside of work.
Physical Therapy Injury Prevention Program (PTIPP)
The Physical Therapy Injury Prevention Program (PTIPP) is free for Seattle Fire Fighters and is located at the Station 2 Fire Fighter Health Clinic, where the Annual Fire Fighter Medical Exam (AFFME) program is offered. The AFFME provides you with information assessing your overall health. The PTIPP provides you with information about your musculoskeletal health. When participating in the PTIPP you will have two options:
Call/text 425-666-9110 or email email@example.com to schedule.
Physical Therapy for Recruit School Program (PTRSP)
The Physical Therapy for Recruit School Program (PTRSP) is also free and is offered to recruits and training staff during the 4-month period when the recruit school is in session. Individual, confidential sessions are offered at the Sound Physical Therapy (SPT) clinic at 3823 Delridge Way, approximately 10-15 minutes from the Joint Training Facility (JTF).
