Did you know 10 Tradies are badly injured at work every day!
The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and Blue Steel have labelled August as National Tradies Health Month to provide valuable information to men and women in the trade industry the importance of full body health and safety.
Artius Physiotherapist Travis Drummond says, “Due to the nature of work, Tradies are more susceptible to especially lower back injuries caused by poor manual handling”.
“Weak core strength and lack of knowledge on how to use your core muscles correctly when lifting heavy objects is a main cause of lower back injuries”, says Travis.

“100% of Tradies will experience some sort of back pain in their life and approximately 10% have a significant disability as a result” says, Travis.
It’s not only your physical health that is impacted, after a year of being off work due to a physical injury, 30% of injured workers seek mental health treatment.
