Protect Your Back
Your back works for you 24-hours a day. It supports you head and neck. It keeps you upright as stand, sit and move around. Your back allows for the side range of motion that is needed for walking, lifting or working on the job. It is an exquisitely designed machine, capable of meeting the demands we place on it everyday. Like a machine, the back can suffer from mechanical stress and injury. It may rebel when It is asked to do too much. When that happens, we feel pain and discomfort. Luckily most pain is not serious and many back injuries can be prevented. This course teaches employees how to prevent some of the most common back injuries, early identification of back problems and strategies to strengthen the overall health of their back.
Workplace ergonomics (computer, monitor, chair, lighting, phone etc)
Setting up your computer may seem as easy as pulling up a chair and reaching for the keyboard. Yet positioning or using your computer improperly can lead to all sorts of injuries-from the short term discomfort of headaches to long term (and potentially debilitating) conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Many people don’t even realize that their pain is computer-related-until they learn proper work habits, and the pain disappears. The Chiropractic Connection will help you discover the best ways to arrange and use your workstation.
Lifting you can live with
Your body is not designed to lift heavy weights. The way you carry a heavy object can subject your back to pressures two to ten times the object’s actual weight. The pressure is increased more as you hold the load away from the body. Safe lifting is a function of both the amount of weight being lifted and the lifting technique used. The Chiropractic Connection teaches safe lifting techniques to prevent injuries on and off the job.
Stretches and exercises for a healthy back
Experts agree that most people should stretch prior to any strenuous activity. Routine activities like typing or using the phone can lead to injury over a period of time, and stretching can help relax your muscles, as well as strengthen them to help prevent future injury. Stretching also increases circulation, which may help you feel better while you work. The Chiropractic Connection offers instruction on appropriate stretching for employees to do on their own or leader lead stretching breaks.
