ERGONOMICS - HOW TO PREVENT BACK PAIN AT WORK
Although the osteopaths and physiotherapists at the Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinic in the City of London diagnose and treat the full range of muscular-skeletal problems, we also have specialists in treating problems that occur because of patient’s occupations.
These aren’t just the kind of problems suffered by drivers, manual workers and workers who spend long periods at computer terminals – we treat a number of classical musicians and even circus performers!
Our ergonomists generally undertake a workplace ergonomic assessment, looking at the way people interact with their working environment in order to come to an accurate diagnosis.
This allows us to treat problems at source by correcting working environments, helping to ensure people need fewer treatments to be free of pain and are less likely to return for additional treatment in the future.
Ensuring workplace safety
People are the single most important resource in any business.
Your business is a collection of processes, reliant on people. Without properly designed, arranged, and optimized work spaces, people cannot perform at their peak level. Many workplaces are designed for aesthetics or to minimize initial construction costs. These compromises in design can become magnified over time, resulting in a lost productivity or serious safety incidents.
Using the principles of Ergonomics and Human Factors Engineering, our certified Ergonomists focus on building your workplace so that it is safe, productive and “user-friendly” for everyone.
