What’s the Harm?
Pain and injuries as a result of work is a drastically increasing problem and the number of people working in jobs that require them to sit for long periods of time is also increasing. Prolonged sitting has been in the news recently with more and more evidence coming to light that it is a risk factor for some serious health conditions. It is also widely accepted that prolonged sitting is associated with musculoskeletal pain and disorders. Therefore, we need strategies to help minimise the risk of injuries and pain, while still being able to work effectively.
