Many conditions can be related to our working environment, either through postural related issues or repetitive movements.
Your physiotherapist will initially work to treat the condition, relieving pain and restoring movement, but can also look at ways of resolving the underlying cause.
It may be that the way you sit, the arrangement of your workstation, or the activities you perform at work could be modified or adjusted to reduce the stress on your body and so reduce the chance of the injury recurring. Advice about equipment to make using your computer less stressful, or arranging your desk more efficiently can often make a huge difference to your bodies ability to cope with the demands our work places upon us, and is often a vital part of the management of conditions such as repetitive strain injury or back pain.
At Stow Physiotherapy we will work with you to keep you well at work and as productive as possible!
