    Physical therapy faculty members provided tips on pain relief, posture and workplace safety during Wellness Day for Faculty & Staff on Tuesday, March 12.

    Jennifer Schwartz, PT, DPT,  Dana Maida, PT, DPT, Anthony Carusotto, PT, DPT, Nicholas Rodio  PT, DPT, and Joshua Prall, PT, DPT spoke to an audience of about 75 staff and faculty members about getting rid of back, neck and wrist pain that may have originated with everyday work tasks.

    "Your problems can be fixed," assured Dr. Maida, "with awareness and education."

    They demonstrated stretches, lifting and cleaning techniques and good desk ergonomics. They also said to be mindful of what feels right for your body.

    "'Abnormal never feels normal,' is what I say to my clients," said Dr. Rodio.  

    The faculty members set up stations in the front of the room following their presentation so the audience could get more personalized tips about how to avoid workplace pain and injury.
