At The Physio ConsultTM, we believe that your recovery occurs both inside and outside of the clinic.
If you spend 9 to 10 hours a day sitting at a desk, you are likely to put a lot of strain on your neck, shoulders, upper back, and lower back. The effects of any physiotherapy program are only beneficial if your work or home environment is conducive to good posture and body mechanics.
Ergonomic assessments are beneficial following an injury and also beneficial in the prevention of injuries such as repetitive strains.
In Ergonomic assessments, history is taken for each client, followed by an in-depth look at their regular work schedule, tasks and positions. At the completion of the assessment, recommendations can be made with respect to changing positions, changing furniture or other medical intervention.
