Frequently Asked Questions

All FedEx Express Technical Operations employees.

We are a team of certified and licensed Athletic Trainers that specialize in recognizing early signs and symptoms of injuries, evaluating discomfort, and providing interventions to help that discomfort. Our goal and purpose is to help you before your discomfort turns into time away from work, added medical costs, and pain.

An Athletic Trainer is a certified health care professional who is an expert in injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation. Traditionally, they work with the athletic population to evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate any discomforts or injuries. In this setting with FedEx, we are here to give you the same care as we would an athlete – focusing on keeping you healthy, strong, and pain-free while at work on the job.

No, we have a Wellness Center on-site which is equipped with all the essentials needed for early intervention of musculoskeletal discomfort. It includes a treatment table, exercise and rehab equipment, tools for soft tissue intervention, taping supplies, and much more.

Prior to every evaluation, the employee will sign a consent form allowing us to share any pertinent information with FedEx needed to improve the safety and wellness of others that could be impacted by the same job task. All non-work-related information is completely confidential between the Athletic Trainer and the employee. All documentation of encounter is housed in our HIPAA protected software system.

We specialize in early intervention of aches or discomforts before they escalate into injury. Upon our evaluation, some aches and pains will be outside our scope of early intervention and therefore we will recommend seeking further medical evaluation.

In instances where you might have gone to the clinic for mild musculoskeletal discomfort, this will be a better first option of intervention. However, for any severe pain, acute injury, lacerations/slips/trips/falls or other medical emergencies, you will go directly to your medical clinic for care.

No. We function under OSHA First Aid guidelines which means we do not administer any medications or prescriptions (including over the counter such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen)

No, we handle both work related AND non-work related discomforts.

Our Wearable Technology assesses individual team members in their human movement patterns that tracks any deficiencies in real time that could potentially be contributors to injury or discomfort overtime. It provides us with individualized programming to strengthen those areas of weakness before they become problematic.

We cover Mon-Fri and are available from the early morning into the evening to access day and night shifts.Hours ofservice are provide on postings throughout the facility, outside the Wellness Center room and on the Ground Safety website Ground Safety (fedex.com)

We will start by asking a few questions to get a better understanding of what is bothering you/causing discomfort. We will provide some form of treatment whether it be stretches, exercises, massage, taping, ice compression, etc. Then, we will discuss additional stretches, exercises, self-massage techniques, proper job mechanics & health habits that you can perform on your own to aid in recovery and get you back to feeling 100%.
