Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

Back injury in health care workers is common. Little evidence suggests a biomarker for this type of injury. In this study, we look for correlations between trunk performance and back injury in employees at a Midwestern teaching hospital using the Turning Point 4.0 Rotational Spine SystemTM.
