Are you one of the millions of UK workers who sit in front of a screen all day? Your company may have asked you to complete a checklist (including the height of your chair, the height of your screen, etc) back when you first started. While employers are taking great steps forward to meet the DSE’s requirements for a safer working environment, we still see a huge number of common injuries caused by incorrect posture or repetitive motions at work.
What are some of the most common workplace injuries?
Surprisingly, in the UK those at work are statistically at a higher risk of developing back and neck pain, work related upper limb disorders (WRULD), headaches and muscular tension than you are anything specifically industrial (burns and falls, for instance).
What is a workspace assessment?
As the body experts, our chartered physiotherapy team can visit your workspace (at home or at work) to assess how you sit and work. We understand what causes pain – even the smallest of poor alignments – and will talk you through how to make adjustments to relieve current injuries and prevent any future ones.
