Strains, sprains and muscle pain comprised more than half of the injuries firefighters sustained, according to the National Fire Protection Association. The job of a firefighter involves a lot of lifting and carrying heavy equipment and people. First responders also climb, pull, swing and shove. The movements can be awkward and repetitive. Being flexible and having good range of motion can prevent these injuries saving the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses. PhysioFit Rx specializes in fixing repetitive movements that can lead to injuries and pain.
