Would You Like An Ergonomic Workshop To Be Held At Your Osteo Practice?
If you are currently working in private clinic practice (osteopathy, physiotherapy, chiropractic or myotherapy), then understanding workstation ergonomics, the hazards and risks associated with sitting at a desk all day and how to advise your clients on improving their workstation set up as well as their work habits to reduce their risk of developing, maintaining or aggravating a pre existing musculoskeletal complaint is super important. For years I worked purely as a hands on manual therapist and would find that whilst manual therapy and exercise helped greatly with their complaints, sometimes some people complaints would never fully go away. It wasn’t until I started seeing how people worked in their office or home environment that it all clicked. Being able to improve their workstation set up and work behaviours goes a long way to helping prevent the onset and aggravation of many musculoskeletal complaints (neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, upper limb pain).
If you work in private practice and are working with clients who sit at a desk, perform repetitive work tasks and suffer from headaches, neck pain, back pain, upper limb pain and/or lower limb pain, then be sure to take a look at organising an in house professional development seminar by Principle Four Osteopathy / Corporate Work Health Australia. We will come to you and deliver a 60-90 professional development seminar to suit your needs. Our current topics and talks include:
- Workstation ergonomics – sitting and standing workstations
- Vehicle ergonomics
- Manual handling training
