Smoking and back pain don’t belong on the HR benefit back burner.
Just last year, large employers cited musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions as one of the top 5 drivers of employers’ healthcare cost increases. However, many don’t know the huge role tobacco use plays on the prevalence of MSK conditions, further inflating employer expenses.
Now is the time to get smart about the connection between smoking and back pain.
Join us for a 30-minute interactive session that starts with tips from Mayo Clinic on stretches for the workplace. Then get ready for a fun quiz with prizes ($10 Amazon giftcards) for those who are the first to answer questions correctly about smoking and back pain—and the impact of tobacco on MSK issues.
You’ll have 10 opportunities to win!
Spend 30 minutes with us and you’ll learn:
- Which MSK conditions are most affected by tobacco use
- Different MSK risks for current smokers, ever smokers, and past smokers
