Work Proving a Pain?
Our work life accounts for large portions of our day, and how we feel and use our bodies during work hours can dictate how we feel the rest of the day.
The truth is, the simple act of sitting for so much time each day predisposes our backs and necks to injury and pain. This can be hugely exacerbated by using a computer without due consideration.

An Open Letter to Employers
More and more, businesses are taking the health and happiness of their employes into account. This comes as a natural result of modern regulation, feedback services and social concern for wellbeing - as well as the national spotlight falling on a small minority of abusive employers. And, of course, we all know that happy workers produce better results.
In every job, there can be problems of one type or another suffered by employees. This includes stress, difficulties with co-workers, pain and biomechanical dysfunction, all of which can predispose a multitude of illnesses and it's associated sick leave.
Perhaps this is especially true of desk-based jobs that offer a sedentary lifestyle. Back pain, neck pain, headaches and "funny pins & needles-like feelings" into the feet and hands are all very common.
One only needs to look at the figures to see that back pain especially, costs millions of pounds every year to employers. (£29bn in 2013)
