STRESS, SLEEP, AND EXERCISE

Small changes can have big results. Find out how.

Rats starved of sleep die significantly faster than those starved of food and water. What can we learn from this?

Stress is the most common cause of work place absenteeism, but is it all bad?


Exercise is a "wonder drug" Exercise strengthens the entire human machine — the heart, the brain, the blood vessels, the bones, the muscles. The most important thing you can do for your long-term health is lead an active life. This isn’t a conclusion based simply on some opinion, it is widely evidenced and accepted.

EVIDENCE-BASED MANAGEMENT OF BACK PAIN.

How to help (and not harm)

  

Back pain is often misunderstood and mismanaged and it causes huge distress to those who experience it....which is approximately 1/3 of the population every year. 

This course is specifically designed for fitness professionals who are perfectly placed to make a huge difference in the national epidemic of back pain.

Using the most current concepts and evidence around pain science and back pain, we have created  a course which will stimulate and challenge and also be practically valuable, with key strategies to incorporate into your work with patients and clients. 

MANUAL HANDLING AND INJURY MYTH BUSTING

Bend your knees and keep your back straight. Times have changed.

Back pain and RSI remain a huge problem and yet manual handling and work
ergonomics training courses are common place. These course teach the “correct” lifting technique and educate on desk ergonomics and posture in the work place.


Despite the vast number of people being trained, we are still experiencing epidemic proportions of back pain.

Something is not working!


Our understanding of back pain has come a long way since the HSE manual handling guidelines were written. The evidence is convincing, and yet the training courses have not
kept up with this change.


Drawing upon the latest research from the fields of pain science; posture and ergonomics and a biopsychosocial understanding of back pain, the course will provide an evidence-
based framework for effective management of employees experiencing back pain. It will
present the evidence around posture, lifting, physical symmetry, Flexibility and desk
ergonomics, and make one realise that emphasising these aspects can be entirely unhelpful!

CURRENT CONCEPTS IN SPORTS PERFORMANCE

What we've learned from professional sport

Sport is continually pushing boundaries. Records are broken, teams are getting stronger, athletes are getting faster, but much of the foundations remain the same.


Or do they?
