What are the Most Common Firefighter Injuries?

Recent numbers released by the Calgary Fire Department don't paint a pretty picture when it comes to firefighter injuries and the numbers back up my previous post,'It's a Tough Job/Dec 9th".

According to them: These are the reasons Firefighters came to their Wellness Center:
33% knee/ankle problems
33% back problems
18% others things
16% shoulder problems

So remember to include an injury prevention component in your workouts for the knee/ankle, the lower back and the shoulders.

Be Safe!
