As a busy Orthopedic Surgeon, patients ask me how they ended up needing surgery. I often find myself telling them, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Repetitive overhead work is a major cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction. When not recognized, it can lead to surgery which can sideline an employee for several months.
An outpatient shoulder surgery and therapy frequently costs over $20,000. Add to that the cost to the employer from lost time and the resultant increase in their workers compensation mod rate. It is so important to prevent injury by using products that do not compromise the worker’s body mechanics.
I can enthusiastically recommend products from Accelerated Fastening like The SkyDrill™ and their Kwikpole™ line because they allow the worker to do their job without causing soft tissue injury.
