Major Preventable Injuries

You hear about injuries and accidents every day. But are they truly accidents? Which ones could be prevented?

1. Burns
2. Falls
3. Diving accidents (esp. diving into shallow water)
4. Alcohol-related accidents
5. Unsafe driving
6. Rotator cuff tears
7. Back strains

Safety and injury prevention is your individual responsibility. If you truly want to live with minimal physical pain, you must practice safety at all times. This is true whether you are at home, at work, in the car or at the mall. Do not expect your employer to make your work environment or work station safe. Your manager will not be the one experiencing your pain if you get hurt at work. Do whatever it takes to keep yourself safe from these types of injuries. I do not want you to end up being my next P.T. patient, and trust me–you do not want that either.
