King of Prussia, Pa. (September 8, 2022) –8 in 10 Americans will walk into their nearest pharmacy in search of back pain relief or more likely hit the apps to have someone deliver some. In case you’re a basketball enthusiast – this means the court will be left with just 2 players without back pain. Of those with back pain, 5% will develop chronic and long-term back pain and will require continuous care with a physical medicine professional.
As someone in the business of workplace injuries, these likely don’t come as a surprise. But that doesn’t make them any less concerning and brings up many questions. Why are so many basketball players out with back pain? Can you prevent your injured workers from falling into that 5% and developing chronic pain? Is all hope lost once back pain becomes chronic? Or are there inventions that can still help?
During this 1hr CEU webinar, you will gain a deeper understanding of chronic low back pain, expand on the risk factors for chronic back pain, and review cost-effective and evidence-based solutions. Anne Marciniak PT, DPT, a chronic pain expert and Team Lead of Clinical Services for MedRisk will arm you with insights you can put into action today.
Continuing education credit is available for nurses and nurse case managers as well as adjusters in several states*. The 1hr webinar will take place, Wednesday, September 21st at 12 p.m.
This CEU event is sponsored by HeadsUp Healthcare, MES Solutions, and MedRisk.
