The Dr. D. Y. Patil College of Physiotherapy, in association with Inner Wheel Club, Pimpri, conducted a physiotherapy screening camp for school teachers on 24th February 2022 at the PCMC School, Rahatani. The prevalence of neck and back pain in teachers has increased due to online teaching during the COVID pandemic. The objective behind conducting this camp was thus to screen any related musculoskeletal pain, specifically of the spine, in the school teachers. Around 20 teachers were assessed for BMI, Blood pressure, and examination of neck and back were done including measurements of ROM and CVA angle. This was followed by ergonomic, preventive and a few therapeutic exercises that were taught to the teachers. All the teachers were assessed by the MPT Students (Ortho) under the guidance of Dr. Roopa Desai and Dr. Neha Kulkarni. The teachers also enthusiastically asked about their queries and positive feedback was also given.
