Your back at work
Mid-West Osteopaths specialise in all occupational injuries and offer work place assessment. Through postural correction we can help protect you or your staff from injury in the workplace, saving you money, and potential disability, in the long run. Manual work inevitably carries the inherent risk of injury caused by heavy or incorrect lifting and manual handling.
Prolonged poor postures like bending over can result in disc injury and sciatica.
Lifting above the head can result in muscle strains and tendonitis.
Office workers using a computer, mouse and telephone whilst seated can result in postural complaints, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and neck pain.
Driving occupations may have problems with hips, knees, buttocks, and additional shoulder and neck problems .
