Vehicle ergonomic assessments

Did you know that the team of osteopaths at Principle Four Osteopathy are trained in vehicle based ergonomic risk assessments.    Many of our clients who present to the clinic with musculoskeletal complaints such as neck and shoulder pain, lower back pain, sciatica find that driving and getting in and out of their vehicle can aggravate their symptoms.  In some cases, it may be the primary aggravator for their complaint as they are required to utilise their vehicle regularly for work.

Our osteopaths will sit down with you and take a detailed case history and assess and review how you interact with the vehicle.  We will focus on entering and exiting the vehicle, seat set up, working within the vehicle and storage and manual handling.  Where possible we will make adjustments to current set up to optimise it for comfort and on occasions make recommendations with regards to specific accessories to improve your seat set up.

If you would like to organise a vehicle ergonomic assessment, then please contact us at  Principle Four Osteopathy is your leading occupational health provider in the Melbourne CBD and surrounding suburbs.
