The number of work related injuries is on the rise. The most common work health ailments involve spinal problems and associated muscular pain and weakness. These arise as a consequence of poor sitting positions and long periods of physical inactivity that individuals in the corporate world are subjected to. Sitting for long periods puts immense strain on the spine and peripheral joints, making them vulnerable to injury. As the inactivity weakens the muscles in these areas, the risk of injury is increased.
