Poor office setup, including incorrect seating, poor monitor position, even where you place your mouse, can cause a massive range of problems from sore necks and general neck pain, back pain, headaches, elbow or wrist pain, shoulder pain and even eye and vision strain.
The Proactive Physiotherapy home and office ergonomic assessment program will assess your office or home workspace setup and help you not only set up your work environment to fit your body, but minimize any chances of you getting back pain or neck pain and avoid injury.
You spend a lot of time at your desk, so it’s logical to think that if you are sitting in a poor position that you will probably do yourself harm. A Proactive Physiotherapy office or home workspace ergonomic assessment will:
Our expert office ergonomic physiotherapists will visit your home or work place to assess your workstation set-up and observe you in your work environment. You’ll get a detailed ergonomic report with recommendations of ways you can improve your work posture and minimise the long term problems that often arise for people with office based jobs.
If you spend a lot of time at your desk and experience any of the symptoms detailed above, then contact Proactive Physiotherapy to organise your on-site office ergonomic assessment. It could be the best thing you do for your health in a long time, and you don’t even have to leave your desk!
At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.
For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.
For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.
Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.
Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
