Four areas of the body are commonly stressed and subsequently injured due to repetitive work at the research bench and in the office: wrists, shoulders, upper back, and lower back. Learn how to prevent injuries and heal the body with simple stretches and remedies that can easily be done at the desk, in the lab, or at home. This will be an interactive class and it is recommended that you dress comfortably.
