PODCAST: The importance of ergonomics & posture with Dr. Jennifer Horonjeff

Posture and ergonomics are the ‘hot topics’ of discussion in every Human Resources department. With an increasing number of studies coming out linking sitting and bad posture to a range of  health conditions, companies are starting to take note.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, poor posture is the number 1 reason for back pain. With a staggering 80% of the population suffering from back pain, and back pain being the number 1 reason for missed work days – the ‘sedentary threat’ is becoming hard to ignore.
