What will I be doing?
Instructor led sessions at work reinforced by home practice.
The Healthy Back Programme is safe, effective and can be done by most people in the workplace. It's a simple yet highly effective stretching and strengthening programme developed by GPs, physiotherapists, osteopaths and yoga therapists.
The easy-to-do movements are designed to be practised in comfortable clothes on a non-slip yoga mat. Sessions in the workplace last from 30 to 60 minutes, and employees are provided with video material and an illustrated poster so that they can practice at home. Even 10 minutes of practice per day has been shown to have significant results in reducing back pain.
The Healthy Back Programme is taught by registered instructors who have completed a 200 hour training programme. Research has shown that employees who participate in an eight week programme not only have less back pain and more wellbeing, but also have far fewer sickness absence days related to musculoskeletal pain.
