A Corporate Wellness Program can Implement Back Pain Prevention Exercises
Employers should be well aware of the fact that lower back pain is one of the most common reasons why people have to miss work. While you can’t directly control how people prioritize their health, you can offer corporate wellness programs to give them an opportunity and incentive to make it an important part of their life. Whether your employees work primarily sitting at a desk or if they are required to do a lot of bending, twisting and lifting, low back pain is possible for everyone. Here are some ways corporate wellness programs can be effective in preventing back pain in employees.
The Power of Movement
People who sit for the majority of the day will likely experience some sort of back discomfort eventually. This is especially true if they don’t exercise much. This caused by your gluteus/butt muscles being inactive and creating poor posture. Corporate wellness programs promote movement throughout the day, which keeps the blood flowing and the muscles moving. Simple lower back exercises and stretches at different points in the day will go a long way in preventing long-term back pain.
Proper spine care also needs to be prioritized and lower back exercises can help. The more flexible a person is, the easier it will be to have good posture and mobility. It’s especially important for employees who are active throughout the day to be flexible to reduce their chances of getting injured.
Strengthen Core And Back Muscles
The best stability and support anyone can give their spine is a strong core and muscular spine endurance. Most corporate wellness programs will have plenty of core and back strengthening exercises since they are valuable no matter what type of work you do throughout the day. The key will be to focus more on small weight many repetitions than trying to build strength. Small daily steps will benefit your overall spine health and you may even notice your existing back pain is slowly getting relieved in the process.
Create A Healthier Workplace Environment
It’s no secret people who deal with back pain on a regular basis aren’t as productive as they can be. Employers who offer corporate wellness programs promote a healthier workplace environment. The result is a more positive atmosphere, better mental focus and fewer work days missed due to back injury or pain.
