Occupational injuries and your osteopath
Musculoskeletal injuries are very common in the workplace, be it an office based injury or manual handling injury. Common musculoskeletal complaints include lower back pain, neck pain and upper limb injuries. Risk factors such as awkward postures, sustained or static postures, repetitive work tasks, work tasks performed for long durations without rest and use of tools that create vibration are often linked to these strains and sprains that occur in the workplace. If you are currently suffering from any strains and sprains and feel that these are aggravated or maintained by work related postures or tasks, then be sure to touch base with your local osteopath and have these looked at.
