Save a fortune on therapy for Musculo-Skeletal Dysfunction

There are three major dysfunctions in our community

  1. Metabolic
  2. Musculo-skeletal
  3. Psychological

Musculo-skeletal dysfunction is costing an absolute fortune. People are running manual handling programs teaching people how to lift properly when they aren't strong enough to tap a keyboard or push a pen, let alone lift anything heavier than a feather off the floor!

Most people don't have a strength and flexibility training program. Most of the people I see haven't done a situp or a pressup for 20 years or more. They're completely out of touch with their body.

Most people are over weight. It is a major contributor to decreased mobility and increased pressure on joints.

You can begin to better understand the situation you're in if you can:-

  1. Make the distinction between dysfunctions and injuries.
  2. Injuries are generated externally; things fall on people, they fall over things, they breathe in noxious fumes ... You can manage this risk by making your working environment safer, watching your step, avoiding hazards ...

    Dysfunctions are generated internally by lifestyle neglect. You can manage this risk by becoming fitter and healthier, stronger and more flexible.

    MUSCULO-SKELETAL DYSFUNCTION

    The cause? Motion starvation. Very few people have a strength and flexibility training program that keeps their body in good alignment.

    The treatment? Motion - a strength and flexibility program that gets bones back into alignment. Pain goes away. People feel better. Mood becomes elevated. Expenses go down. Productivity improves.

  3. Measure the risk. Our experience suggests that very few musculo-skeletal incidents come from 'out of the blue'. Very few camel's backs are broken by straws!
  4. If you measure strength, flexibility and mobility you'll get a clear picture of the risk and what you need to do to lower it.

    If you don't know what the risk is, you can't manage it.

    If you purchase a copy of Fix Back Pain you'll be able to make an assessment of your risk of musculo-skeletal dysfunction.

  5. Develop and then implement a strategy to get your body back into good shape.
  6. It can involve as little as a daily, 10 minute strength and stretch session at work, with your work colleagues.

    On top of that you need a regular and systematic strength and flexibility training program.

    In Fix Back Pain we've got a strength and flexibility training program ready to go. There is also a flexibility program you can do at home while you're watching TV - which gradually gets your body back in alignment.

If you don't have a strength and flexibility training program there's an 80% chance that sooner or later you'll succumb to musculo-skeletal pain.

If you can't make the distinction between injury and dysfunction you're going to have to cop it sweet. You're getting weaker and tighter by the month.

Then once the pain reaches a crescendo, it's down the chute into the surgery, over the road to the chemist and then off to the rehab provider. From there its a seamless journey through to the physio for a rub down, crunch and the electric shock.

It's just more ambulances at the bottom of the cliff.

The result? You're battling on through the pain and feeling miserable and you've got one heck of a bill from all your therapists.

You can put an end to this vicious cycle by purchasing a copy of Fix Back Pain.
