Last Chance: DoD Back Pain Survey

By Staff Writer | April 29, 2011

The U.S. Department of Defense is conducting a survey throughout April that focuses on any pilots or crewmembers that have suffered back or neck pain and injury while serving as part of a helicopter unit. Studies have indicated that military helicopter crews are reporting “unusually high” rates of back pain and related injuries. Researchers from the Office of the Secretary of Defense are asking anyone affected to complete the short survey, which is available online until April 30.
