In today’s world, where everyday work is often characterized by long hours at a desk and in front of a computer, back health is becoming increasingly important. One-sided movements on the job can also potentially cause back problems. For this reason, we at Dr. Hesse Tierpharma have organized a health day for the second time, which this year was all about back health. The AOK was on site as a partner and enriched the event with a variety of offers.
Varied courses for a strong back
The health day gave our employees the opportunity to participate in various courses and activities, all aimed at promoting back health. These included exercises with the Theraband, which helped to strengthen the back muscles and relieve tension. A trigger point massage loosened tense muscles and provided relaxation.
A special highlight was the presentation on “Behavioral change – how does it actually work?”. Here, participants received valuable tips on how to integrate healthier habits into their daily lives over the long term. An Escape Room game on the subject of the spine not only provided excitement, but also conveyed important information about the anatomy of the back.
There was also a movement and gait analysis, which analyzed individual movement patterns to uncover possible causes of back problems. The mobility of the back was checked in another course.
Pleasure for body and soul
Of course, the physical well-being should not be neglected. A food truck treated employees to delicious bowls that provided energy for the day. Refreshing drinks ensured that no one remained thirsty.
