When your company is hurt by the cost of employees with back pain... 

"According to a 2006 review, total costs associated with low back pain in the United States exceed $100 billion per year, two-thirds of which are a result of lost wages and reduced productivity." Crow W, Willis D. “Estimating Cost of Care for Patients with Acute Low Back Pain: A Retrospective Review of Patient Records.” J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2009:109:229-233. 

We can help... 

We've learned how risk management requires more than employee education; it must have simple and convenient implementation and accountability!

Dr. Garzillo understands the goal of decreasing employee lost work time and lost productivity due to common back pain as well as how to make that goal happen. He's learned from experience how common back pain effects employees who sit, stand, twist, or lift as part of their occupation plus he's produced the best results regardless of the employees' sex, age, past injuries or current physical condition. 

He assists companies with their employee education, implementation, and accountability through: 

  • In-person "lunch and learn" presentations  
  • Dial-in teleconferencing presentations with answers to emailed questions and recorded podcast availability

Dr. Garzillo's presentations include:

  • What are the big mistakes many people make when they have common back pain?
  • What are the best things employees can do to eliminate this type of back pain? 
  • How can employees avoid the "the three L's of risk" (leverage, load, and longevity) for common back pain?

His programs include valuable education on cause and prevention as well as fast, simple and convenient ways to measure the starting point and progress of each employee.

“Hilyer et al. randomly assigned firefighters from two of four fire districts to perform 12 daily stretches for 6 months, while the firemen from the other two districts were instructed not to stretch (total 469 firemen)…there was a clinically relevant decrease in risk for the group that stretched (relative risk 0.82; 95% CI, 0.59 to 1.13)…Further, the costs due to lost time from work were also less in the group that stretched ($950/injury vs. $2828/injury).” Hilyer JC, Brown KC, Sirles AT, Peoples L.
