Schools and Instructors

Why adopt Save Your Hands! 2nd Edition?  As a school education director or instructor, you know the importance of teaching effective self-care and injury prevention methods to students.  Good habits developed from the very start of their training give students the best chance of having a long, healthy career and protecting their investment in their training. Schools need a comprehensive research-based textbook they can trust to provide a proven-effective approach to injury prevention, self-care, body mechanics and ergonomics for their students.

Save Your Hands! has been a required or recommended text at hundreds of educational programs for manual therapists in the United States, Canada, and worldwide since 1995. No other textbook provides the scope of evidence-based information and practical, real-life tips and advice that Save Your Hands! does.  Written by world-renowned authorities on work-related injury prevention among manual therapists with a combined 35+ years of experience helping workers avoid injury, Save Your Hands! is the textbook schools trust.

We work closely with education directors, owners and instructors to fully support their efforts to provide comprehensive injury prevention and ergonomics information through textbook support and curriculum guidance.  The authoritative information in Save Your Hands! 2nd Edition helps your students save their hands, neck, back, shoulders and emotional well-being throughout their careers, and also helps them deliver better treatment to their clients as they gain deeper understanding of risk factors that their clients are exposed to in their own work.

Today's students are aware of the risk of injury in the work they do. They have a wide choice of schools, and they choose the ones that demonstrate a commitment to preparing them for the physically demanding work ahead of them with methods that have been proven to be effective.  Using Save Your Hands! 2nd Edition in your curriculum gives your school this important competitive advantage. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.
