Research shows that 88% of early years and primary education professionals have suffered musculo-skeletal pain, which they feel is work-related and up to 50% of 14 year olds have now experienced back pain.

Musculoskeletal Disorders include back, neck hip and knee pain, joint injuries and muscle strains.

Risks include:

  • Bending and twisting – repeating an action too frequently
  • Uncomfortable working position
  • Not receiving and acting upon reports of symptoms quickly enough
  • Repetitive and heavy lifting

Staff working at low heights with young children in child-focussed environments have an increased risk of pain due to the very nature of the job – often adopting awkward postures, lifting furniture and equipment, carrying resources and children.

Children’s spinal health can be adversely effected by modern lifestyles and poor posture, increasing their risk of musculo-skeletal disorders.
