Provide prehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions in fighter aircrew. As such, the Contractor shall evaluate and provide massage therapy to fighter aircrew personnel as part of a prehabilitation program. Prehabilitation is intended to strengthen core musculoskeletal (MSK) system to enhance resistance to neck and back injury. Also, healthy lifestyle education is addressed as part of an overall health maintenance program to enhance injury resistance. Such massage therapy as part of an overall program, focusing on neck and back pain, will improve the overall quality of life for fighter aircrew.
Specific tasks include:
- Develop Individualized Program (IP) for each member served. The MT, working with other team members will develop an IP for each assigned aircrew member requesting services of the MT. The goals of this IP are to increase neck and back conditioning and overall health to minimize the risk of neck and back injury and to minimize the severity of any injury experienced by the member by addressing neck and back strain encountered by aircrew members.
- Advise unit commanders on matters related to injury prevention. Identify opportunities for improvement.
- Advise unit commanders of administrative matters, purchasing of supplies and equipment, and supplemental fiscal requests related to interventions and professional services provided.
- Conduct equipment, product, and literature reviews to ensure that the OHWS program continues to improve as our understanding of injury prevention evolves.
- Communicate with the servicing MTF when an aircrew member has a medical condition or injury requiring medical care.
- Ensure safe and effective operation of equipment and contribute to a safe working environment.
- Assist in providing Human Performance and Prehabilitative trending metrics report to include:
musculoskeletal pain, duration of pain, origin of pain, types of pain, and trends of musculoskeletal pain over periods of time. Metrics will also capture lost duty time due to aeromedical disposition of DNIF as well as personnel removed from the daily flying schedule but not requiring medical treatment, limitations of training status/duties (i.e. # days out of training), aircrew perceptions of neck and back pain, aircrew perceptions of overall effectiveness of the OHWS program, duty and deployment limiting profiles, flying waiver information related to neck and back pain, and Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) information related to neck and back pain. Human Performance metrics shall also be gathered to assess the OHWS program. Other metrics may be requested as the program matures and new information is available to guide new measures to improve aircrew performance and to improve the OHWS program.
- Graduated from a MT certification program. The MT will maintain a license or certification from the state in which the service is to be provided.
- Must have experience working with professional and/or collegiate athletes, or equivalent. A minimum of two (2) years’ experience is desired.
- Possess oral and written communication skills in order to meaningfully interact with peers, outside agencies, vendors, providers, and Military Health System (MHS) stakeholders to exchange information, provide briefings and presentations, participate in research, and develop metrics to demonstrate or advance effective and efficient aircrew neck and back pain prevention.
- Knowledge of local, state, and federal laws and regulations, professional code of ethics, AF guidance, DoD guidance, and practice standards in order to ensure adherence within legal and professional parameters.
- Knowledge of computers and software applications in order to conduct data collection, tracking, trending, and analysis.
