The Solution to Work-Related Injuries


Delivery of Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT), a dynamic system of assessment, treatment and prevention for patients with mechanical spine and extremity disorders, early in the injury/pain episode.
A thorough, skilled, physical examination by a clinician using the MDT assessment delivered by the therapists at MOR is the most reliable and effective means to interpret symptom and movement responses that will identify and resolve a majority of these conditions that without, would otherwise be left undiscovered.

  • Predicts those that will resolve conservatively/quickly
    (Donelson 1990)

  • Identifies & expedites return to work
    (Karas 1997)

  • Reduces likelihood of surgery by 6 times
    (Skytte 2006)

  • Reverses conditions from “worsening/no improvement” to “significant improvement” (Long 2004)

MOR Assessment & Treatment


Administering efficient and low-cost corrective therapies for non-complicated musculoskeletal conditions within the proper delivery algorithm often goes unapplied leaving individuals with pain, functional limitations and decreased workplace performance.

Outdated Traditional Model


• work presence is disrupted
• distraction while present at work occurs
• subsequent patient dissatisfaction results.

Consider these figures…


Many traditional attempts to care for these workers have been found to delay return to work (rather than expedite it) and to deliver care that has long been shown to have little to no effect on recovery.

13% of common workforce over a 2 wk period has loss in productive time due to musculoskeletal pain (Stewart 2003)

76% of loss is due to reduced performance while at work (presenteeism) not absence (Stewart 2003)

Exacerbations or recurrence account for far more days lost than first-time episodes (Ricci 2006)

Lumbar injuries result in 149 million lost days of work/yr with productivity losses = $28 billion (Nguyen 2007)
