Workplace Wellness – Are You Sitting Down? Why Standing Desks Aren’t the Final Solution to Work Health

Marathon runners train for months, even years, before they run a big race.  What are we doing to prepare ourselves for the marathon of sitting all day, every day?  It may not seem like a marathon, but it’s taking just as much of a toll on our bodies. 

We’ve spent a lot of time and money selecting great ergonomic chairs for our employees, and it’s hard to find a desk today that doesn’t have sit/stand capabilities.  But if we aren’t using them properly, and doing other things to condition our bodies, we are just making things worse. 

At our June educational session, we are excited to feature Dr. Sargon Odisho, chiropractic physician and owner of The Chicago FIX.  Dr. O will explain the proper way to prepare our bodies for our daily marathons at the office.  He will also demonstrate the correct use of ergonomic chairs and sit/stand desks, help us recognize the difference between an ache and an injury, and provide knowledge we can immediately take back to our firms. 

Questions? Please contact Mary Ann Rojas.
