LOGiC Pain Education

Every employer knows about sickness absences – it’s a major problem for the country – just under 9 million working days were lost in 2016/17 because of Work-Related Musculoskeletal problems – WoRMs, (eg back pain, neck pain, sciatica, repetitive strain). How much does it cost you? – not only in sick pay but in the advertising, recruitment and training of a replacement – all these things cost time and money and impact productivity. Currently we provide solutions like Manual Handling training, we do Risk Assessments and write Lifting Policies but research shows that none of these are preventing WoRMs from happening.

Did you know that employees who acquire WoRMs and whose employer takes an interest in them are far less likely to end up with a persistent problem than those whose employer doesn’t take an interest?

Did you also know that combining pain education with manual handling training is a far more effective way of tackling back pain than manual handling training alone?

The reason these current strategies are not preventing WoRMs from happening is because pain and injuries are far more complex than simply telling people how to lift and expecting that to protect them from getting injured. Most people do not know enough about pain, about what it means and about what they should do to help themselves get back to normal activities (and work!). If people don’t know what they should or shouldn’t be doing they will tend to do nothing!

A LOGiC Pain Education workshop is your opportunity to let your employees know that you are taking an interest in them and to hear from them what could be done to tackle the problems in your organisation – they will have the chance to make suggestions for how things could be improved. Let your employees know that you take their health and welfare seriously – include LOGiC Pain Education in your strategy to tackle your WoRMs problem now!

What is LOGiC Pain Education?

For the employer:
The LOGiC Pain Education workshop is a fun way of learning fascinating facts about pain – a subject you never knew could be so interesting!
We cover subjects like:
– What is pain – how does it happen and what does it mean?
– Activity – why and how does it help and what should I be doing?
– Medication – why some pain killers don’t kill pain! What should I use, how does it help and how I should use it wisely and safely?
We would also look at how things are done in your organisation – things that you currently do which really help your employees and things that could be improved upon when employees have WoRMs.

It is delivered as a one day workshop tailored to your organisation delivered in the workplace for up to 15 employees. There are lots of group activities and interaction – employees learn about biology and neuroscience without even realising it…

By understanding this stuff your employees are empowered to get back to normal activities faster.

After the workshop:
– You will receive a report and recommendations for your organisation.
– Follow up discussion at 2 weeks.
– Quarterly follow up with options for further workshops and Day Surgeries.

Day Surgery:
– Delivered in the workplace for up to 6 employees on a 121 basis.
– For employees who need more in depth guidance and support and a confidential space to discuss their issues.
– Tailored solutions for individuals – stretches and exercises, practical advice and information.

For individuals interested in LOGiC Pain Education:
Workshops can be run for up to 15 people who would like to learn more about pain and how it impacts their lives – maybe they have a musculoskeletal condition which impedes their everyday activities, maybe they are just curious!
We would cover subjects like:
– What is pain – how does it happen and what does it mean?
– Activity – why does it help and what should I be doing?
– Medication – why some pain killers don’t kill pain! What to use, how it helps and how I should use it wisely and safely.

LOGiC Pain Education workshops empower you to get back to normal activities faster!
