Reduce Your Risk & Your Costs
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year, and back injuries account for one of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. Further, one-fourth of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries, costing employers billions of dollars. These figures do not begin to reflect the pain and suffering employees experience as a result of their injuries.
Back injuries are exceedingly painful. They are difficult to heal, and they have an effect upon everything a person does. If you have ever experienced a back injury, you already know this. What you may not know is that after you have experienced one back injury, you are much more likely to experience another one sometime during your lifetime. It is important to learn techniques and procedures that may help you prevent a reoccurrence.

Scientific studies have shown that with regular wear, Ergonomically Designed Insoles can help relieve lower back pain and feet pain in 8 out of 10 cases, by helping to distribute weight more evenly and easing painful pressure points under the balls of a worker's feet. The lightweight polyurethane provides superior cushioning and maximum shock protection to relieve pain in the feet, knees, hips and lower back caused by the jarring foot shock that occurs every time a worker takes a step.
