26 Aug Tradies National Health Month with TDHS Exercise Physiologist, James MacAuslan
This August marks the Australian Physiotherapy Association’s (APA) ninth annual Tradies National Health Month, an awareness initiative that shines light on the importance of tradies health.
Based on research, the APA says that 60 per cent of tradies often have aches and pains as a result of their job, and that two-thirds of tradies agreed that they would be more inclined to stretch or warm-up before starting work if their employer prioritised it.
In this video, our new Exercise Physiologist James MacAuslan outlines four key factors to consider when staying fit and healthy while working as a tradie.
