Tradie Injury Prevention

Yes, just let them be.

To avoid injury, don’t tell a tradie how to do their job! That does sound fair, doesn’t it?

It’s the last week of tradies health month!!!

As we close this month, we hope that you’ve learned something from the things that we’ve shared here. If you’re a tradie, if you’re partner is a tradie, if you’re family member is a tradie or if you come across one, we hope you got bits and pieces of somehow changing some bad habits into good ones. ✔

We’ve mentioned some risks last week and one of them is injury, so this week we will focus on how to prevent these injuries. Listen in as Claire provides some helpful tips so we can altogether make sure that our tradespeople stay safe and healthy while doing what they do best!

Risky situations are always a part of a tradie’s day-to-day life. Injuries happen and while we cannot totally eliminate the dangers on the job, we can definitely prevent and reduce these.

Here’s sharing some tips (source: Geo)
Warm up for 5-10 minutes before a job
Daily exercise
Keep the chest up when handling heavy objects
Keeping loads as close to the body as possible
Focus on developing deep core muscles
Use protective gear including goggles or gloves
Always use the right equipment for the job – don’t use a substitute if a tool isn’t available

Let’s look out for ourselves and the safety of others!

❗️Extreme Pain on Left Heel❗️

Another client with great results using ANF therapy. Client has had extreme pain in the left heel and was unable to put pressure on it for more than 3 months. After 20 minutes, the pain decreases to the point she was able to walk on it.


Extreme Pain in Lower Heel

If you have a little niggle, don’t ignore it. Go and get it looked at!”

Putting emphasis on this, as always: LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! A “little” discomfort might be your body’s way of communicating that there’s something wrong, and it may not be as “little” as you think it is.

Come and see an ANF practitioner who will assess you holistically. Do what’s best for you and your body‼

Again, a big shoutout to all these highly skilled tradespeople – thank you for all that you do! And just like any other job out there, let’s all be on the lookout for ourselves and safety should always be a priority. Take it easy!
