At City Osteopathy, we can provide you with ergonomic advice and assessment to ensure that you are working in the best possible manner to prevent further injury. Whether you work at a desk, in a shop or on a factory line, sustained repetitive postures and activities have a profound effect on your body, and can cause muscular tension, postural strain and injury.

With the right treatment and advice we can not only help you recover from your injury but importantly, implement changes to your workplace and work related activity to help you recover, manage and prevent the onset of these injuries.

This can include advice on the equipment you use, such as task chairs and desks but also advice on how to prevent potential postural strain with customised exercises and movements that specifically address the issues associated with your complaint or injury.
