Why is the incidence of back pain (and other mechanical pains) not reducing?
It may even be increasing. Especially for those who work in an office all day or in a manual job.
ll the best evidence shows no link between posture and the cause of pain. Aligning everyone’s work station perfectly or ensuring everyone keeps their spine straight and bends their knees won’t effect the incidence of pain.
As a practising occupational osteopath, I have daily experience of how the body is effected by the strains of working. I am trained to the highest standard and use the most up to date understanding of musculo-skeletal health to keep your workforce fit and your workplace up to date with government legislation.
I am here to treat your staff, not assess them.
The best way to help is if the employee understands the strains they are putting themselves through every day and the best ways as an individual to reduce these strains. I have taught employees from a wide range of industries how to be comfortable at work.
Click on the links below to find out the different options available:
Fitness to work or postural task assessments
1-2-1 in clinic or in house assessments for employees or tasks. This will assess an individual’s capability to perform a particular task and therefore their potential for injury. I can assess tasks that are more posturally challenging and help to create solutions to make the task more comfortable for those who are doing it.
Diagnosis and treatment of muskulo-skeletal disorders
I provide osteopathy, acupuncture, massage or rehabilitation exercise services to diagnose and treat individuals to get them back to normal health as soon as possible. If you or a member of your staff has been off work I can get you/them back to work quickly.
Individual work station assessments
I provide different packages for training people in how to set up their work stations and sit properly at a desk. I can train groups or individuals to make specific, personal adjustments and modifications to suit them and their own working environment.
Manual handling training
My bespoke Manual Handling Training gives employees the skills to perform physical tasks with minimal effort. It is not a tick box exercise to cover against any legislative issues.
Health promotion and awareness seminars and exercise classes.
I can provide group seminars and advice on general health and wellbeing, including how to manage stress at work. On site Yoga, pilates or general stretching classes and workshops.
