Working in an awkward position creates strain on the joints and surrounding tissue. Consequently, a poor working position is a significant risk factor for back injuries or shoulder and wrist disorders.

The fatigue caused by an awkward working position in and of itself affects your well-being. Reduce your risk of developing physical problems with these tips.

Start out in a correct body position:

  • Stand with equal weight on both legs
  • Maintain an S-curve in your spine
  • Keep your neck aligned
  • Keep your hands on the same plane as the forearms

  • Lower the grip on the brush, place your thumb under the handle
  • Push upwards instead of pulling, using your natural strength

  • Keep your working tools in a loose and balanced grip.
  • Blow-dry from under where possible.
