Musculoskeletal Health Management (MSK) utilizes sports medicine principles for preventing, correcting, and rehabilitating musculoskeletal dysfunctions and injuries for any type of occupation including high risk employees such as firefighters, policemen, and emergency medical services. MSK scans and analysis have become a staple in the workplace in managing annual health and risk costs.
Musculoskeletal Health Applications in the Workplace
MSK Health Management enables employers and payors to lower workplace frequency of claims and total incurred medical costs at scale, by preventing and triaging MSK common conditions.
Objective Pre-Employment Screening
Does the job require certain physical skills that aren’t negotiable? Employers can use MSK management as a pre-employment screening tool to make sure prospective employees are up to the task. From range of motion to functional movement, MSK management helps ensure you are hiring the right people for the job.
Managing Work-Related Injuries
MSK management can track baseline passive rom and functional movement. When an injury occurs the baseline data becomes invaluable in assessing when the employee has returned to a pre-accident level and provides insight to return to work protocols.
