Whether you work in an office or outside on the land, your body needs to be able to cope with the individual demands made on it by the type of work you do.
 
Static posture at work such as working at a computer for long periods, working in restricted and uncomfortable positions or managing heavy materials can result in work related postural strain.  
 
In the office where you may be sitting at a desk, common problems that can occur are aches and pains in the neck, between the shoulder blades and lower back.  There is also the risk of wrist, elbow and shoulder pain from the repetitive strain of using a keyboard and mouse.  Those who frequently use a telephone may experience neck and shoulder problems that can lead to headaches.  
 
People who drive a lot in the course of their work can develop problems resulting from their driving position.  These can include discomfort, pain or stiffness in the back, neck and shoulders as well as the hips, knees and feet.
 
Manual workers and skilled laborers are at risk of injuries caused by heavy and often awkward lifting, overstretching, and periods of prolonged bending.  These can include acute and chronic back and neck pain, sciatica, ligament strain, muscle strain or spasm and joint pains.
 
Our patient centered approach offers osteopathic treatment that will usually resolve work related injuries earlier, allowing you to get back to work sooner.  We also offer postural advice and rehabilitative exercise prescription to help prevent recurrence.
