An ergonomic injury is pain that develops in the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bone, joint or soft tissue pain) or nervous system (nerves pain) that has resulted from repetitive movements or over-straining when in the work place.
Our presentations can be to the Occupational Health Team and Employees of the business. People are often unaware of how a poorly set up workstation or posture can cause pain in the back, neck and arms. They are also often unaware of exercises that can be carried out at the desk to prevent prolonged poor postures. Our power point presentations by one of our Ergonomic Therapists include relevant information on anatomy of the body, how to set up their workstation optimally at work and home, chair exercises to improve flexibility, core strength and blood supply and how physio treatments can help when pain occurs or if you have suffered an injury or recently had an operation.
Information booklets will be provided for each employee to take away after the presentation.

For most people who work in the office, it involves a lot of sitting down at a desk. By using the phone in a certain way, the keyboar
d and mouse in a certain way or twisting / slouching on your chair, it can lead to pains in your back, shoulders, neck, arms, wrists and hands. Ergonomics looks at the way you are working at your desk and we can then advise on posture and changes that can be made and equipment that can be ordered to minimise strains on your body while working.
