Health and wellbeing services that get to the core of your business…. Musculoskeletal disorder (back/joint pain) is one of the most common forms of chonic ill health and absence in the workplace. In the UK more working days are lost as a result of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) than any other illness and it is a fact that over three quarters of the adult population will experience back pain at some time in their lives. MSD can arise in many work situations.
Although the exact cause is often unclear, there are many activities which can aggravate joint pain and affect workplace performance. Drawing attention to good postural control and deeper body awareness, Pilates exercises can help alleviate back, neck and shoulder pain by realigning the body. Pilates improves muscle strength and flexibility, builds concentration and reduces mental and physical tension. Pilates is known to re-energise and re-vitalise the body and mind, leading to increased productivity and morale.
