The Correlation Between Hamstring Tightness and Low Back Pain in Seated Workers

Presented by AEC 2016/GOErgo - OPEN TO ALL
Sept. 17 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenters: Ahmed Radwan, Ph.D., associate professor, and Thomas A. Crist, Ph.D., professor, Utica College

Sitting is now the most common posture in the American workplace. Seated workers are at especially high risk for Low Back Pain (LBP). Potential correlations between muscle impairments and LBP have not been well documented and may lead to more effective prevention strategies to reduce LBP in seated workers. In this presentation, the anatomical relationships between the hamstring muscles, pelvis, and spine will be reviewed and the association between hamstring tightness and sacroiliac/lumbar spine pathology will be described.

Lean Approach to Patient Scheduling

Presented by Society for Health Systems
Oct. 27 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Keith A. Leitner, president and owner, Leitner Consulting Group

As healthcare resource utilization has increased, patient waiting has also risen. Past attempts to reduce waiting have usually resulted in less utilization of key resources – with huge financial implications. While this trade-off is widely known and much research and mathematical models have been published to try to optimize this trade-off, the inherent complexity of applying them to the real world schedule of most practices has been prohibitive.

This webinar will clearly illustrate the root cause of the trade-off while showing a very practical and applicable way to achieve lean patient scheduling.
