New video series on how to do almost anything without getting hurt

Many of us are doing activities that we haven’t done since last spring – or even for years.  COVID lockdown means we are cleaning our houses, out of necessity or just from boredom.  We are getting ready for spring gardening, suddenly we are cooking more, or have decided to finally tackle those DIY projects.

To help you stay healthy, our team has put together a series of Video’s.  They show you the best way to do many activities without getting hurt. Learn how to vacuum, rake, get off the floor, cook, etc., all without hurting your back or neck.
