“The best treatment is prevention”
Musculoskeletal assessments are used as screening tools for people who are starting a new activity, whether that be a new job or a sport, or concerned about the physical health of their body. The assessments can help determine if the person may be at risk of injuring themselves due to the type of activities that they may be doing and the lack of range of motion or strength that they actually have.
Some people don’t even know that they have certain restrictions until it is too late. The assessment is a useful tool for helping people reduce the risk of injury which may even prevent them from performing their required task or even being off work due to an injury.
