Did you know that 7 million people are off of work at any given time due to injury? During a lifetime, 80% of Americans will suffer from an episode of low back pain, and of this 80%, a majority of individuals will have one or more reoccurences. Most musculoskeletal work-related injuries are a result of repetitive stress and strain to one or more parts of the body. Many professions require that employees do repetitive activities which can cause cumulative trauma to the musculoskeletal system. Some factors that may contribute to an injury include prolonged poor posture, poor body mechanics, repetitive stress or strain, stressful working conditions, and an overall lack of physical fitness. 92% of all injuries will get better, but many will not return to work without the aid of a Physical Therapist to help establish and correct the underlying cause of injury. At PTHC, our skilled clinicians not only treat your musculoskeletal disorder but also work with you to correct the underlying cause and, most importantly, help prevent a reoccurence.
