Our bodies are our most important tool. And for a tradesperson without the ability to climb a ladder, operate machinery or lift heavy objects, their jobs and livelihoods are at stake.
Over one-fifth of the employed men in Australia work as tradesmen. In fact, carpenters and joiners are two of the top professions in our country! We’re all likely to know someone who works as a tradesman but are they getting the pain relief they need?
Tradies have very physical jobs, which can include bending, lifting, climbing and stand all day long. These motions are all repetitive, which increases muscle contraction and activation. This can easily lead to repetitive overuse and that’s when the discomfort comes into it. But as Aussies, we tend to take a “she’ll be right, mate!” attitude to most things. And sometimes, this isn’t the way to go about it. Everyone deserves to live a long healthy life, especially the men and women that are making the buildings we work in or the homes we blissfully live in. Some work 6-7 days a week, 5am-5pm. And to think they don’t get any relief or time to get themselves on track and to have a break worries us as therapists. Therefore, we really want to encourage all tradies, or anyone on the tools, to get a remedial massage as it is the biggest benefit for your wellbeing and body. So what does Remedial Massage do?
