Recent data suggest that Australians are spending more and more time at work. If you work in an office environment, you probably spend up to eight or even more hours a day sitting at your work station. Over the course of months and years this will impact on your body’s mechanics.
Incorrect work practices at seated work stations can manifest in a number of ways including back ache, disc problems, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm numbness and headaches. It can also affect concentration, productivity and general well-being.
It is very important that workstations are ‘set up’ to best meet individuals’ requirements in terms of chair position and height, monitor placement, pointing device and keyboard use, level of light and so on. Physiotherapists are trained to assess and improve seated workstations and provide this type of ergonomic advice.
At Central City Physiotherapy we offer onsite physiotherapy treatment which helps to reduce work place injuries from overuse etc.. which also helps to keep people at work. Early intervention for all injuries leads to faster recovery and improved productivity, happiness and well being.
Onsite massage is a healthy way of revitalising and rewarding your staff. We come to your offices with all the equipment needed. We can do the massage at the person’s work station or on our comfortable seated massage chair. We don’t use messy oils and there is no need to remove clothing.
