Are you working in Human Resources for a company in Northamptonshire?
Do you have a lot of employees taking too many days off work due to either back pain, neck pain or headaches caused by poor posture?
Are you are looking for a way to reduce the number of days lost due to these issues? then we might just be able to help you….
- According to government statistics for 2021/22 a total of 24.3 million days were lost at work:” Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health’ (1)
- Musculoskeletal disorders accounted for an average of 15.2 days absence per year. (1)
- According to Loughborough University Report in 2020 ‘Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the leading cause of sickness absence and work disability. Previous research has highlighted that ‘ill‐health presenteeism’ may be more costly to the employer than sickness absence and that levels of presenteeism may be increasing’ (2)
As an owner of a small family business, employing 5 members of staff, these statistics look very scary, but I can imagine if you are a larger business, with a much larger workforce, these numbers could mean a significant amount of lost working days throughout the year.
So…What can you do about it?
Chiropractic has been helping people for many years who are suffering with musculoskeletal disorders, and is growing in popularity as an effective, safe and drug free method to help people deal with everyday aches and pains….and best of all it works.
Most Chiropractors will offer what is called ‘Free spine checks’ which allows them to reach out to local businesses and members of the public, being able to advise them how best to manage their neck pain, back pain, headaches, and posture….to name but a few.
