  • We design job specific workshops that are aimed at training employees how to perform their jobs bio-mechanically correct. We customize programs for all job descriptions including material handling,construction, trucking, nursing, police, fire fighters, distribution etc. Our aim is to break workers’ bad habits and replace them with healthier ones that they will apply on a daily basis.
  • We have developed our training techniques to ensure that the worker “learns” proper biomechanical techniques. By “learning,” we mean that they acquire basic knowledge of the anatomy, biomechanics and stretching exercises, and are motivated to apply proper body mechanics to their jobs on a daily basis.
  • We will teach your employees how to do their jobs, in their work environment, biomechanically correct by having them perform their job tasks under the supervision of our facilitators who coach them on how to do these tasks safely.

Sittingsafe® Workshop

Sittingsafe® is a new generation of job-specific on-site training designed to reduce office-based injuries and illness experienced by many who work with computers or perform other job activities while in a seated position.

Sitting Safe LogoBenefits

  • Workshop gets the participants involved via the Sittingsafe® practical module that ensures the employee can adjust their own workstation ergonomically correct. This practical module is supported by our state of the art Sittingsafe® video and materials.
  • The Sittingsafe® Ergonomic Workshop also includes the Sittingsafe® 3 minute stretching routine aimed at reducing stress from repetitive activities. The goal of the program is to teach the employee how to control their environment using their existing furniture and equipment to prevent painful and costly injuries.
  • The key to preventing these costly injuries is to reduce the amount of stress incurred on a daily basis by properly adapting the environment to be more user friendly, correcting improper biomechanics, and, through a proper stretching routine, rid the body of accumulated stress.

New Theories for the Causes and New Treatments That Work!

New theories in chiropractic neurology describe a pattern of muscle imbalance called pyramidal non-spastic paresis, sounds like a lot of big words but is really a simple concept. This muscle imbalance is due to spinal reflexes that govern our normal postural muscle tones. This is how it works, a spinal reflex is defined as a loop of circuitry between sensory nerve endings sending information to the spinal cord and the information being processed in the cord and quickly causing a muscular response. This type of loop usually does not interact with the brain. The knee jerk is the simplest reflex.
