Common issues in today’s corporate environment include workforce productivity, workforce retention and lost time due to mental health, stress and injury (soft tissue or otherwise). Year over year, the incidence and chronicity of these issues are increasing.
These issues have a multi-level negative impact on the bottom line of virtually any company. For third party payers these issues are amplified in the form of additional stress and cost from an increased number of members/employees falling into the chronic categories of short term and/or long term disability. These costs are relayed to your company in the form of increased cost of group benefit premiums.
Any amplification of these issues, whether internal, front line or client-based, will increase your cost and increase the stress on HR and staff. With this in mind, companies are taking a financial hit from multiple directions.
Words commonly linked to these issues, that should be addressed in the solution include: stress, mental health, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, soft tissue injury, pre-existing, personal responsibility and compliance.
A video-based layman’s guide focusing on what we like to call the “big red negative arrow” (the pre-existing phase). That invisible expanse of time, behaviour and circumstance that precedes a stress and/or trauma, ie: workplace accident, stress related issue, etc.
Defining the “big red negative arrow” will explain the mystery of why some people can accept any degree of stress and/or trauma and recover in an appropriate time frame, while others fall into the chronic category with seemingly minimal stress and/or trauma.
The program information and solutions presented are science-based and non-diagnostic making them appropriate as an integral, but presently ignored, part of a post-trauma treatment or as a foundation for any wellness-based program.
The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the personal health and wellness of the population through education and behaviour modification. This will increase employee engagement and operational efficiency while at the same time decrease the number of individuals falling into a chronic state of injury/illness (short term or long term disability).
The program is a six level video-based lecture series. Each level consists of 10 lectures. In addition to answering many of the most commonly asked health care questions and providing a comprehensive general education for employees at any level of the corporate structure, the program will also bring to light why soft tissue injury should be the easiest health care issue to treat and resolve.
The easiest way to explain the big red negative arrow is to think of it in the context of a first injury/second injury illustration, ie: a sprained ankle. The first time you badly sprain your ankle, there is a set medical protocol to follow and you generally heal within an accepted timeframe. A few months later, you re-sprain the same ankle. Generally, you will require less force (trauma) to create greater damage and the medical protocol the second time around is less effective and takes longer, oftentimes leading to a chronic situation.
As you go through the program, you will come to realize that the big red negative arrow is actually the first injury in every instance: soft tissue injury, visceral, cognitive, mental health, physical performance, susceptibility to illness, etc. Ignoring it will decrease the effectiveness of any initiatives and treatments being implemented to address any one of these issues. Any reduction in the big red negative arrow will increase the effectiveness of any initiatives and treatments being implemented with the benefit of possibly rendering them unnecessary. Chronic Pain Simplified is not a competitor to other treatment providers and stakeholders, it is an Ally. In short, the program is a solution amplifier.
If we make people better, we make the world better. There is currently a great push for “green/environmentally friendly” initiatives. This program is a “green” initiative for people. Solutions to complex global problems are going to come from a increase in cognitive and creative mental function across the population. The foundation upon which these solutions will be found begins with the individual and personal responsibility.
