Many assume athletic trainers as trained professionals who help athletes with injuries during a practice or game, but the work of an athletic trainer isn't limited to sports. Spectrum Health is partnering with area businesses to prevent and heal injuries in the workplace.
Spectrum Health Orthopedics@Work is an initiative to work with area businesses to prevent employee injuries and help workers get back on the job if they have been sidelined by a muscle strain or other injury.
The program provides customized injury prevention strategies for businesses, early symptom intervention and advice, certified athletic trainers on site, as well as health and wellness programming.
