An increasing number of musculoskeletal injuries are being seen in our work places, as a direct result of poorly designed work environments with inappropriate equipment. This promotes incorrect posture and positioning. In the long-term this may lead to adverse changes to the body such as altered spinal alignment, premature joint and disc degeneration, nerve compression and decreased muscle flexibility. As a result symptoms such as neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, RSI and lower back pain may be reported.
Our UPANDRUNNING Physiotherapists will incorporate a thorough ergonomic assessment into all consultations where appropriate.
As well as providing the necessary manual therapy and exercise rehabilitation to correct the imbalances, they will provide education and advice regarding:
- Correct sitting postures
- Correct computer positioning
- Correct workstation set up
- Correct lifting and carrying techniques
- Equipment modification options.
This ultimately will result in a reduction of symptoms and prevent their re-occurrence.
