Friday MineFit TidBit: Why poor workplace posture can lead to pain (and what to do about it)

Posted By Darrell Smith, Friday, July 7, 2017

Did you know that top athletes can generate twice the power of the “everyday” human?

MineFit was founded on the principles of treating miners like athletes. Not in the sense of equating working men and women to “elite” sports performers, but rather that, to avoid pain and injury, you should treat your workers as you would an elite athlete: 

(1) encourage proper posture, 
(2) know the right methods, 
(3) and understand the WHY of activities during Health and Safety trainings.   

The article below is a glimpse into the current events in wellness: Stand Up Tall! It is easy to achieve once you get a little practice and know your body check-points.  

Neck, Shoulders, Hips, Knees, Feet.  

Please review this article, which has some technical terminology; but, if you google any of the terms, you can get an image of what it means.  

...Also, here is one secret:  Lay on the floor and see how much of you (your spine) gets to the floor when your legs are down flat and your palms are down by your sides.  

Enjoy, and Happy Friday. 

From Your MineFit Head Coach,
