As a wellness vendor of both injury and illness prevention strategies, TRS Wellness is consistently monitoring the effects of our programming as it relates to specific risks for each of our clients. We have had great success in reducing risk factors contributing to higher cholesterol, hypertension, development of diabetes and musculoskeletal injury. Our comprehensive testing measures and program criteria are aimed at identifying risks before they become a disease state and a costly expense to employers. By utilizing health screens that assess both biometric and physical function, Health Risk Assessments, claims data, as well as one-on-one counseling and education with clients, we are helping employers control their healthcare spending.
