Work-related back pain is a major contributor to working days lost to musculoskeletal disorders in the UK.
Official figures reveal that almost 3.5 million working days were lost to back pain in 2015/16, and a recent survey found that 38% of people in the UK claimed work caused their back pain, with 31% saying their work station caused bad posture and back pain.
As business owners, we need to make sure we look after our backs so we can continue to look after our business, and avoid working days lost to back pain.
At Core Strength Studios, we help people prevent and reduce back pain through specialist strengthening and exercise rehabilitation.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn:
· The impact on your back of spending prolonged periods sitting
· Simple daily hacks to minimise this impact
· How to look after your back in order to continue looking after your business, including optimising your workstation to avoid posture-related pain
· Core and back strengthening exercises to avoid the onset of back problems, or treat your current back pain
We will also have a Q&A for you to ask advice on any issues you currently have and how best to treat it.
This workshop is for anyone who would like to know how to avoid the onset of back problems, or anyone who is currently experiencing back problems and would like to know how to ease the pain at work.
