The treatment trills amazing results for many neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. KKT along with the treatment also advocates taking control of your health where its Patient Management Advocates (PMA’s) who re generally clinical psychologists work in conjunction with a patients treatment by counseling and educating Pakistanis with lifestyle changes for their well being. Although each patient’s treatment is tailored, KKTOrthopedic Consultants signify the importance of work ergonomics especially for Pakistan’s corporate sector and emphasize in such awareness camps as to how potentially harmful situations can lead to back injuries due to sheer ignorance.
Since most of the spinal conditions arise because of simple negligence’s in doing routine things, KKT considers it a responsibility it owes to the society to educate people on this and spread the message to corporate employees of Pakistan’s leading organizations.
KKT endorses a healthy lifestyle which means adopting healthy habits. In the sessions held at Telenor Head and Corporate offices, teams of Doctors and PMA’s laid special emphasis on back care and tips on correct postures for a healthy back as well as educating employees on consuming adequate and healthy diet.
The comprehensive education program, which was more of an interactive session, included basic ergonomic guidelines, back care and healthy lifestyle changes in context of back and neck pain, muscle spasm and stiffness, diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. The KKT team with specialists in different fields educated the employees on how to identify and prevent ergonomics hazards at workplace and demonstrated some chair exercises as well as sleeping postures.
In addition to this, KKT offered the employees a complementary screening test. For the purpose, a Spinal Screening station was set up where the employees could undergo their spinal symmetry. At the end, a question and answer session was kept to address the queries of the employees where the specialists guided them, gave them tips and addressed their health complaints.
In total, KKT carried out over 240 screenings and educated over 500 employees of Telenor who attended the event. Although a small initiative by the KKT team, but definitely a first and one off activity in the ever growing corporate sector of Pakistan. On the whole, it was a fruitful session that can go a long way for a collective healthy tomorrow.
KKT offered special coupons to the employees whom they can avail for themselves or their immediate family, who maybe suffering from spinal and musculoskeletal disorders.
