Fresno, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/04/2016 -- John Pryor, strength and conditioning coordinator for the Japan Rugby Union and a director at JointAction, is announcing the publication of a new article focusing on effective strategies for injury prevention in occupational settings. In the article, Pryor discusses the inherent physicality of certain work environments while also noting that all occupations carry some degree of injury risk warranting the implementation of preventive strategies.
Pryor, who holds a master's degree in biomechanics earned from Southern Cross University and has published countless articles in international sports medicine publications, has conducted extensive research on the subject of injury prevention and has often focused specifically on the musculoskeletal injuries common to so many work environments. In addition to the application of this comprehensive research, Pryor has also adapted many of the injury prevention strategies utilized as a part of his role as the strength and conditioning coordinator with the Japan Rugby Football Union, a role in which he has served since 2012.
"Through proper strategies incorporating both injury prevention along with an appropriately designed strength and conditioning program, the incidence of workplace injury should be significantly reduced while also improving the overall health and wellness of all parties involved," Pryor said. "By sharing my research and the strategies stemming from the information made available through research, it is my hope that workplace injury can be avoided to a much greater degree than is currently the case."
