Pregnancy Back Pain Kit

Posted by Jessica Roberts in Back Pain, Charity, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Reposts, Total Back Care on Thursday 8 February 2018

For many pregnant women back pain is often felt, especially the second trimester onward.

Posted by ANGELA HARRISON in Back Pain, Charity, Consultations, Ergonomics, Family Business, Reposts, Total Back Care on Friday 28 July 2017

When recommending an office chair or other specialist equipment, working by measurement alone can only solve part of the problem. A person’s measurements are a good starting point, to narrow down the selection of equipment to try, however this does not take into consideration other factors that are key to the correct selection for the […]
