Suffer from lower back pain? You're not the only worker - back and neck pain is one of the most common reasons for workplace sick leave. With over 50% of the working population experiencing back or neck pain symptoms at least once a year we have introduced educational talks to the workplace to raise awareness of this and offer solutions.
The average level of employee
absence has increased slightly
compared with last year, from
6.6 to 6.9 days per employee,
although it remains lower than
in 2013 (7.6 days). Average absence
has increased most in the public
sector (where it is now 50%
higher than in the private sector). The level of absence also tends to
be higher in larger organisations,
regardless of sector.
On average, manual workers have
1.5 more days’ absence per year
than non-manual workers 
Causes of Absence
Minor illness remains the
most common cause of short term
absence, followed by
musculoskeletal injuries, back pain
and stress. The most common
causes of long-term absence are
acute medical conditions, stress,
musculoskeletal injuries, mental ill health
and back pain 
Research has demonstrated that poor postures and inactivity can contribute to the development of back pain and other spinal disorders.
Our talks are given by our chiropractors and the topics include:
- The facts on Low Back Pain
- The Dangers of Sitting
- Posture Analysis
- How to set up your workstation
- Exercises for preventing pain
- Nutritional advice
The talks are tailored to the specific industry you are in, so whether you are working at a desk, standing for long periods of time or doing heavy labour work, we can design the right talk for your team.
You and your staff will be left with knowledge and awareness and hopefully you will see a reduction in sick leave and an overall happier workplace. There's nothing worse than being in pain and Spinal disorders, such as back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and disc disease, to name a few are common and they can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health, impacting a person’s ability to work, to enjoy everyday activities and even disrupting healthy sleep patterns.
We offer Corporate Packages where companies will receive a discounted rate for their employees. We also offer all staff who are part of the package to get treated at your office premise to save time and increase productivity.
'Trainer is cheerful and very knowledgeable and encouraging. Would use and recommend their services'. F. Fombo, from Wandsworth Council
'This session has helped the team already. Many thanks for your handouts, this will help while sitting for a long time at my workstation'. J Beckett, From Wandsworth Council
"This was an immensely informative and useful session. We all left with a better awareness of the importance of posture and movement and some really practical guidance as to how we might look after our backs better. There was absolutely no selling of the B and W Chiropractors, but we’re very likely to do business with you in the future, both as an organisation, and in my case, as an individual. Thank you for your generosity and for a highly informative session". A.
McDowall, from Share Community
