Many carers suddenly suffer back injury after several years of caring for someone. Typically, this is caused by the gradual damage caused to their back through lack of awareness of correct techniques finally catching up with them. The straw that breaks the camels back! To add insult to injury, a carer who damages their back is three times more likely to suffer the same again compared to someone who hasnt had a back injury....
Although this Moving and Handling course cant guarantee against injury, it will help to make you more aware of the risks and causes of back injury, and introduces techniques you can use to reduce the chance of it happening to you. Prevention is better than cure!
