Musculoskeletal Health has grown to be one of the top 3 medical cost drivers for corporate America in the causes of both long and short term absences. American businesses face huge costs for musculoskeletal injuries. These conditions include repetitive strain injuries, sprains, strains, tears, overuse injuries in muscles and tendons. Common injuries include carpel tunnel, lower back, neck, shoulder, knee, hips, elbows and hands.

As is always the case with HEC programs, gamifiying and making our programs interactive and fun is at the core of our program efforts. This is a proven method to increase participation, create excitement and empower employees to take steps to live injury free.
HEC supports employees in making lifestyle changes to improve their overall health through awareness, prevention, demonstrations, applications and a combination of wellness programs including:
- Physical Therapy
