Congratulations to Dr. Scott McCaffrey who has been selected as the Arthritis Foundations 2017-2018 Medical Honoree.

Dr. McCaffrey

A Boulder, Colorado native who practiced Emergency Medicine for over fifteen years, Dr. McCaffrey moved to Hawaii and  founded the Work*Star Injury Recovery Center in 1990 at Queens Medical Center West in Leeward Oahu. Shortly thereafter upon extensive research he developed the Aquatherapy Center at PT Hawaii-Waipahu.  His concepts have evolved into a multiple location,  integrative rehabilitation program which address the needs of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and rheumatological disorders.

A strong advocate of water based care, Dr. McCaffrey has been a pioneer in aquatic therapy through devolepment of a 100,000 gallon indoor, solar heated, salt water pool facility in leeward Oahu.  By reducing gravity through buoyancy, this approach has proven especially effective in people with spinal injuries,  multiple regional trauma disorders and multiple joint arthritic dysfunction.

Now, in its twenty-seventh year of operation, Work*Star and PT Hawaii have successfully treated over 40,000 patients covering a broad spectrum of injuries that occur at work, play, home, or on the hightway.  The organizations have been recognized as innovators and leaders in the field of patient-centered rehabilition.

Dr. McCaffrey is  known for his patient advocacy and adherence to the time honored medical values of the Hippocratic Oath.  He has served as president of the Honolulu County Medical Society, the Hawaii Medical Association, the Hawaii Injured Worker Alliance and the Work Injury Medical Association.

Sports injuries

Yesterday, after a long day of treating patients I went out for an evening run, a 5 km jog around the neighbourhood that not only keeps me in shape but clears my mind. A block before turning into my street, the tip of my running shoe caught on a loose cobblestone and I was forced into an ungraceful commando roll on the sidewalk.

Top Ten Work Injuries

Nobody expects to be injured on the job. In fact, many employers dedicate a large portion of their budget to educating employees on safe practices, in addition to re-vamping facilities to meet safety codes.

Unfortunately, accidents do happen. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 1.1 million injuries happened in the workplace in 2011, with an average recuperation time of eight days.

I hate being injured.

It can keep me from doing things I really love to do.

  • Working out
  • Playing outside
  • Practicing my dance moves (I’ve said too much)
  • Sometimes it even affects my work and mood.

My goal when I get injured is to first figure out why and how I got injured and what preventive measures I can take to decrease the risk of that specific injury or other injuries in the future.

Then I like to come up with a plan that will help me recover faster so that I can get back to practicing those sick dance moves as soon as possible.

I’ve got a motto, “It’s hard to live a LimitlessLIFE if you can’t get out of bed.”
