    Tips to Avoid Back Pain in the Workplace

    No matter what occupation you have, whether it involves physical lifting or sitting at your desk, you can end up with crippling back pain which can be really difficult to deal with. It not only causes a lot of discomfort but it can also make the simplest of tasks seem like an impossible mission. If you are suffering from back pain in the workplace, for any reason, you should speak to your employer. If they fail to resolve the issue, you may be able to make a compensation claim.

    Regular Breaks

    It is important to take regular breaks away from your work space, whether it is at your desk or in another vicinity, as this will help to prevent and relieve any back pain you may be suffering from. There are many people who end up eating their lunch at their desk and never move from their area but this can be really detrimental to the body.

    The Right Technique

    If your job involves lifting for instance, it is imperative that you are utilising the correct technique so that you avoid pain. Your employer should provide you with adequate training to be able to carry out your job effectively, but if they fail to do so, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.

    The body will be less likely to suffer pain and injury if you exercise more and this includes out of the working environment. You should endeavor to keep your body in good physical condition as this will help to prevent future aches and pains and relieve any that you are currently suffering from. You should aim to undertake at least 30 minutes of physical exercise each day as part of your routine and vary this as much as possible.

    Keep Moving

    If you stand or sit for prolonged periods of time, it makes the body more susceptible to pain so try and keep moving as much as possible.
