Back pain is a common concern, affecting up to 40% of South Africans at some point in their lifetime. Back Awareness Week is a government backed initiative and is marked on 6-12 September every year to educate and make health workers and members of the public aware of the problems of back pain, common causes and risks, complications, as well as management and prevention.

Most working professionals spend the largest portion of their lives at the office. Unsurprisingly, both the atmosphere and the arrangement of the workplace have a direct influence on the creativity, productivity and the general health of employees, and in turn, the business.

In support of National Back Week and to coincide with the launch of our new online store, ErgonomicsDirect.co.za, we will be offering you the chance to win one of 3 Soho Back Supports.

For your chance to win or to find out more, simply follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts for more details.

We are passionate about creating a healthier home and work environment that reduces muscle, joint and eye strain and promotes safety and comfort. We encourage you to do the same.
