MedRisk’s Phil McClure Discusses Biomechanics Research in Feature About Preventing & Treating Injuries During COVID-19

The need to keep workers safe from injury has become more challenging due to COVID-19, as working remotely puts many workers at risk of musculoskeletal injuries.

Many employers are extending remote work to the end of 2020, while others are making it permanent. For those newly working from home, hunched over laptops on makeshift desks, the risk of injury is even greater. This WorkersCompensation.com article (free subscription), featuring MedRisk’s Phil McClure PT, PhD, FAPTA, vice president of MedRisk’s International Scientific Advisory Board, discusses strategies derived from biomechanics that can not only help prevent injuries but can also be used to treat workers.
