At Sports & Spinal Albury, we have Osteopaths who can deliver ergonomic assessments and training to Albury Wodonga and surrounds. Combining our Osteopathic understanding of injuries and how the body works, with additional training in ergonomics, we believe we can deliver an ergonomic assessment unlike any other in Albury.
So, what is ergonomics?
Workplace set up and ergonomic training is recognised as one of the most important factors in workplace health and safety today. Many underlying causes of musculoskeletal pain and injuries that we commonly see in the clinic can be avoided by simple changes in workplace set up or with the advice of ergonomic training (sitting/standing posture being the big one!).
If you are sitting or standing for long periods of time at work, then it is essential that the environment be adjusted to fit you. Unfortunately, anyone working in a poorly designed ergonomic work place is destined for pain and injury – it is merely a matter of time before the body has had enough.
What is involved?
All workplace set up and ergonomic assessments are performed by our Osteopaths, who have extensive knowledge of the current ergonomic research findings and workplace legislations. We currently cater for both small and large groups and offer clients a variety of ways to provide ergonomic assessments and advice – this can range from group presentations to one on one brief or extended consults.
