Planting the ‘seeds’ of proper prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions before someone develops a problem can help control the situation if/when it does occur. Your employees will understand how the body works, what they can do to prevent these painful problems and a more effective way to heal from their injury or illness. They will be taught to manage their condition for the long haul, and not be dependent on the healthcare system that only recognizes these conditions in the acute phase.
Once a claim or musculoskeletal problem has occurred in an environment where the ‘seeds’ of proper management have not been planted, there is a significant chance that the case can get blown out of proportion. HCE also will demonstrate how the musculoskeletal system is integrated with the other body systems, and how taking care of the musculoskeletal system will positively impact the health and wellness of your body as a whole.
In addition to educational programs based upon how the body works, and comparing and contrasting the country’s current approach to musculoskeletal health to the HCE approach, our educational programs can address proper material handling techniques, knowing and respecting your “personal functional limits,” how the body adapts to your work, the impact of smoking and nutrition on the musculoskeletal system, and much more. HCE educational seminars can be implemented with live presentations, in a webinar format, or with pre-recorded presentations.
