Firefighters have significantly different physical requirements than people who work in other jobs. The very nature of their job is extremely physical, requiring strength, agility, flexibility, speed, stamina, and cardiovascular fitness. Remaining fit for duty is critical to ensure that firefighters are able to perform the physical requirements of their job when facing any situation. It’s also important that firefighters remain fit to reduce the risk of on-the-job injuries or heart attack.
At OSR Physical Therapy, our team is experienced in creating programs that focus on the unique situations a firefighter will be faced with. Our therapists will create programs that are based on functional fitness to support strength, endurance, agility, and cardiovascular fitness. The OSR physical therapy team can also help firefighters return to work following an injury.
