Title

The Cost of Back Pain

Summary

The financial implications of back pain and poor posture on employers (reduced working hours, lower productivity, impact on mental health, insurance and medical costs). The impact of sitting for long periods (sitting disease, reduced concentration, impaired lymph flow, poor health outcomes). How to get your staff motivated to move (minimal movement exercises, risk/benefits communication). The future of sitting (standing desks, movement breaks, in-chair movement, posture training).
