In­ju­ry pre­ven­tion at 439 Squa­dron

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - UN MOT DE L’ADJUDANT- CHEF -

Over the last few months, the 439 Squa­dron Com­mand Team and Ba­got­ville’s PSP Mo­bile Unit have de­ve­lo­ped an in­ju­ry pre­ven­tion pro­gram tai­lo­red to the spe­ci­fic needs of the unit.

The flight crews aboard the CH146 Grif­fon are doing ex­ci­ting and im­por­tant work, but the mo­ve­ments to their neck and backs of­ten has ad­verse ef­fects in the long run. For example, 439 Squa­dron ap­proa­ched the PSP at the Ba­got­ville Base to help mem­bers to learn exer­cises that will streng­then and stretch the back and neck muscles. The mo­bile PSP unit is there to meet ope­ra­tio­nal de­mand and to of­fer in­ju­ry pre­ven­tion and trai­ning ses­sions. It al­so of­fers theo­re­ti­cal and tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion to mem­bers. The pro­gram de­ve­lo­ped with the 439 Squa­dron team is a good example of the use­ful­ness of the mo­bile PSP unit ser­vice. Units wi­shing to in­quire about the ser­vice or who would like to de­ve­lop a pro­gram for their mem­bers should contact Clau­die Des­co­teaux at ex­ten­sion 7544.
