In these unstable economic times, employers and business leaders must find more creative ways to increase their bottom-line profitability while ensuring a healthy and motivated workforce with high morale. So how can businesses manage and reduce costs while also improving productivity and output?
When it comes to controlling healthcare costs and workers’ compensation claims, an on-site early intervention / prevention program can have significant impact. DORN has developed a solution that continues to return dividends on the investment while also being supportive of employees. We provide early intervention specialists who are embedded within the workplace. Our proprietary hands-on, Trauma Release™ Therapy (TRT) Treatment, workplace ergonomics, and injury-prevention-education result in a guaranteed 90 day return on investment.
Musculoskeletal disorders are the largest, most expensive, fastest growing category of medical maladies for employers. Pain is a direct cause for:
- 50% of Workers’ Compensation Claims
- 50% of All Healthcare Claims
- Low Productivity
- Medication Usage
- OSHA Recordables
- Low Morale
Added together they constitute an enormous cost for any employer.

Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system.
Rapid and significant results are realized following initiation of the unique approach to providing on-site DORN health services. DORN therapy is specifically defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as first aid treatment and is therefore non-OSHA recordable. The DORN program significantly reduces employee MSD symptoms. We affectively eliminate or minimize employee pain, resulting in dramatic cost savings to the employer. We measure everything we do. We prove what we do works and saves money.
Musculoskeletal disorders are becoming a greater burden every year. The economic impact includes total and incremental direct and indirect costs due to musculoskeletal conditions. Businesses have the option of passively accepting the increasing economic impact of musculoskeletal disorders or seeking to alleviate this impact by the use of DORN health services. When the evidence-based DORN program is implemented, all stakeholders benefit. The result is a happier, healthier workforce and the ability to capitalize on bottom line improvements.
