Description

Pain is a huge problem in the workplace, causing massive unemployment and anxiety.

Traditional solutions may do more harm than good. Working, despite pain, may be a more effective solution.

We are delighted to welcome back to Le Pub the brilliant Morten Hogh. Morten will take us on a journey through the ins and outs of pain in the workplace, looking at the real reasons why people of working age are the most affected by musculoskeletal pain and if our traditional approaches to addressing the problem do more harm than good.

It has previously been thought that pain caused at work was a result of poor working practices and inadequate equipment and that the solution was to adjust the way we work. New research suggests that this may not be case and that the most effective approach is to continue to work, despite the pain, and that in some instances the traditional solutions may actually cause more harm than good.
This talk will discuss arising paradigms in the management of work-related pain.
