Chattanooga Police Officers - We’ve got your back!

A common ailment that numerous our civil servants are faced with is chronic low back pain.  The majority of this back pain is caused due to the limited motion they are able to have while in the wrapped up in their body armor and the locking of their hips due to their belts.  Each officer that patrols the streets of Chattanooga, is wearing well over 23 pounds of extra weight in order to allow them to be protected or to protect others.  The combination of limited motion, added weight, and prolonged sitting creates a terrific equation for the lower back.  We feel fortunate to serve and preserve the health of those serving our community.
