Description

You are invited to the "Hairdressing: How to care for your body and create a long-lasting career" workshop on Monday, September 16th at the Sassoon Academy. The workshop will be run by Peter Petropanagos, a physiotherapist at ONE80 Health, an Integrative Medical Clinic. The workshop will run from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and will cover the following topics that we think will be extremely useful for you and your team:

- Common complaints and injuries experienced by hairdressing teams
- Types of strains and injuries
- Education and tips for preventing injuries and pain
- How to strengthen the parts of your body that you use
- How to have a long and healthy career
- Discount on Custom Orthotics

Did you know that 71% of hairdressers suffer work-related injuries with almost every part of the body being at risk? The most-reported problem is back pain, closely followed by neck and shoulder problems. This is hardly surprising considering the typically long shifts on your feet the entire day whilst performing repetitive and intricate movements with your arms. Standing all day can put an immense amount of strain on the entire body, especially in salons where the floor is commonly made of concrete causing foot, knee, back and even problems with your circulation.

Here are some conditions we see among hairdressers:

- Repetitive strain injury
- Pain or stiffness in the shoulder, neck and/or spine
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Muscle and joint pain
- Varicose veins
- Trapped nerves
- Tendonosis
- Headaches and/or migraines
- Cramping
- Tennis elbow
- Fatigue
- Postural problems

Does any of this sound familiar to you? While there is a number of potential hazards to any profession, you shouldn’t let it stop you.

Here’s how we can help! ONE80 Health is providing you and your team with an educational workshop to equip you with the knowledge and tools to minimize the damage and continue your career with a healthy mind and body.
