Therapists spend many hours a day sitting still and attentive to what their clients have to say. At a purely physical level this poses a challenge to the body, particularly the spine.

Over the years bad posture can lead to back problems


Preventative issuesEdit

It is important to ensure that the therapists chairs are comfortable and provide lumbar support.

Regular breaks during the day for moving around are important

A regular habit of stretching exercises to keep the back flexible should be considered.
