Abstract

In the conduct of their daily duties, law enforcement officers (LEO) are often required to perform challenging physical tasks with little or no notice, sometimes at maximal levels of exertion. Given these demands, musculoskeletal injuries
(MSK-I) are prevalent across tactical professions, and contribute substantially to attrition from training, healthcare costs, and time lost from duty.
