An exercise-based injury prevention program reduces injury rates and costs in urban firefighters
Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy
Firefighters engage in physically demanding work, which results in elevated injury rates compared to other government employees. Medical care for firefighters’ injuries often results in large costs to local governments and their taxpayers. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of an exercise-based work injury prevention program (WIPP) on injury rates and costs in full-time firefighters
