Community Engagement: Lunch and Learns, Breakfast Talks, Team Builders and Health Fairs
Backs in Action takes great pride in being able to give back to the communities it belongs to and serves. This ethic and opportunity to contribute our time, knowledge and expertise through our practitioners and team members is a core value and an important responsibility.
Our engagement philosophy lies in providing expert, patient-centred care that draws upon the strengths and specializations of our chiropractors, physiotherapists, acupuncturists, registered massage therapists and counsellors. Working collaboratively they allow best practices and insights of a diverse group of specialists to come together to provide, corporate teams, businesses, community centres, gyms, senior’s homes and community groups have access to a wealth of knowledge.
We continue to offer courses virtually and are happy to tailor them for your organization or company’s needs. Visit our classes and webinars page to get more information on our current resources and how you can take advantage of the years of experience of our multidisciplinary team of chiropractors, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, acupuncturists, massage therapists and clinical counsellors.
Our approach is one of patient education combined with active participation. That way, each participant not only sees but begins to understand and internalize the ways in which their body can be fine-tuned to work more optimally given the daily stresses it faces.
We have spoken on a wide variety of topics to groups ranging from 10-200 and are happy to work with your teams to develop a program relevant to your needs and questions. We have designed programs that run from 15 to 90 minutes to cater to each organization’s individual needs.
Examples of topics include:
- Why sitting is the new smoking
- What does your posture tell you about your health?
- Stretches to do at your desk
- Self-massage and trigger points for relaxation
- Ergonomics for the workplace
- Avoiding Text-neck
We also offer corporate classes and team-builders such as our Fitness Fundamentals. It’s a great way to invest in the collective health of your team and to counter the negative effects of immobility and sitting.
Our recent engagements have included Bell Canada, Clearly, CIBC and the Broadway Tech Centre.
