What is Deskwork Injury Prevention?
According to a study from Tokyo University and Nippon Zoki Pharmaceutical Co, 80% of people will suffer from some kind of lower back problem in their lifetime.
That means if you haven’t had these problems yet, if you don’t take preventative measures, you probably will.
The same study said back and shoulder problems, causing missed work and lower productivity, cost Japanese businesses a total of 3 Trillion Yen every year.
41.2% of adults in Japan (male and female) suffer from some kind of musculoskeletal pain with the lower back being the most common site.
What does the course cover?
This is a course designed to protect working people from common kinds of injuries and problems that come from sitting for long periods; namely lower back problems, and stiff shoulders.
The exercises are also designed so that even if you are suffering from these problems, performing them regularly can relieve pain and tension and bring your basic core strength and flexibility back. All SBJ training programs and exercises are designed to increase both strength and flexibility simultaneously; but this course more so than others is designed to hit particularly troublesome areas that can affect performance in everything from walking to just sitting upright. This is a great place to start a fitness journey, and get your strenght and flexibility up to the point that you can go after other fitness goals you may have.
How does it work?
The course runs for 1. 5 hours.
The first offered course is offered online, with the second offered a week later live (so that those who joined online and felt like they may have missed something have the option of joining the live program as well to work with trainers face to face if they feel like they need it. ).
