Trent Shuford

Founder, CEO, and Chief Visionary for Workplace Injury Reduction
Read Bio
Trent Shuford has more than 20 years of experience in rehabilitation technology and treatment. Throughout his career, he has continually challenged established methodologies and pioneered new ways to improve health care in the workplace. Trent launched InjuryFree in 1995 to help companies shift their focus from reacting to pain to preventing injury. Today, InjuryFree is a thriving Woodinville, Washington-based corporation serving companies as large as Kimberly-Clark and Expedia, as well as mid- and smaller-size organizations across diverse industries and workplace settings, such as the California Teachers Association (CTA) and National Association of Security Dealers (NASD). Trent's interest in injury prevention in business got its start when, at 15, he hired friends to help him paint houses in his neighborhood. All too often he found his crew sprawled on lawns to rest shoulders, necks, or arms that were in pain from performing repetitive tasks. Since then, Trent has focused his professional career on applying his knowledge and experience in preventing injuries before they have a chance to harm the quality of life. ^ Hide Bio

Read Bio
Ben Harris has been a licensed physical therapist and program director since 1994. His insightful articles on injury prevention have been published in EHS Today, ASSE Professional Safety Journal, and OH&S Magazine. Before joining InjuryFree, Ben owned a multi-clinic, outpatient rehabilitation business in the greater Seattle area. Applying best practices from outpatient physical therapy, professional sports, and the health club environment, Ben has helped InjuryFree develop a unique care delivery model for workplace risk reduction and injury prevention. He also trains and develops InjuryFree staff so they can deliver the highest standards of care and achieve the best possible outcomes. Ben chose a career in physical therapy for two reasons: his interest in science and his personal experience as a high school athlete. After suffering from chronic ankle sprains, physical therapy allowed him to play football unencumbered by his ankle injury. He was truly amazed at the immediate impact a few physical therapy sessions had on his ability to return to the field pain-free. Ben holds an M.A. in Physical Therapy, as well as advanced certification in mechanical diagnostic therapy from the McKenzie Institute, which teaches an internationally recognized system for evaluating and treating spinal and extremity conditions. Ben is proud to have climbed to the summits of both Mount Rainier and Mount Shasta. He also cherishes spending time with his wife and children. ^ Hide Bio
