Did you know that it isn’t always the weight of an object that can lead to a manual handling injury?  There are many other factors can contribute to one developing a workplace strain and sprain.  When it comes to risk associated with one developing musculoskeletal strains and sprains, duration, repetition, frequency, awkward positions and vibration can all lead to the development of musculoskeletal strains and sprains.  If you haven’t had your workplace ergonomics assessed or manual handling training lately, then maybe it is time to organise this for you and your employees.  As we are are Osteopaths who are working in the clinical setting, we have a detailed understanding of how and why injuries occur.  Our knowledge of the body helps us to better inform you of the risks associated with certain postures and manual handling techniques.  Simple changes to ones desk or lifting techniques can help greatly in reducing your risk of strains and sprains.  For more advice, please contact Principle Four Osteopathy on 03 9670 9290.
