Preventing back and neck pain

During our training, you learn to prevent physical problems such as neck and back
complaints, or an annoying ‘mouse arm’. This is possible through minimal adjustments in
your working environment, an ergonomic work posture and simple exercises. The emphasis
is on solutions that are often available in everyone’s individual work situation, but are
insufficiently known.

This is a practical training that explains the causal relationship between incorrect body use,
incorrectly adjusted workstations and the appearance of overload and body complaints.
