Work Place Injuries

Work-related injuries, such as repetitive strain injuries, ergonomic issues, and musculoskeletal strains, can significantly impact an individual’s ability to perform daily tasks and affect their quality of life. Osteopathic care for workplace injuries aims to identify and address the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction, restore optimal function and mobility, and provide strategies for injury prevention in the workplace.

Many work-related injuries result from prolonged sitting, repetitive movements, or poor ergonomic setup, leading to issues such as neck pain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis. Osteopathic interventions focus on addressing these issues through manual therapy, corrective exercises, ergonomic advice, and workplace modifications.

Manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation, and myofascial release are used to alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, and restore normal movement patterns. Exercise prescription aims to strengthen weakened muscles, improve flexibility, and correct postural imbalances to prevent recurrence of injury.

By empowering individuals with the knowledge and tools to address workplace-related injuries, osteopathy can help improve workplace productivity, reduce absenteeism, and enhance overall well-being.
