Ergonomic Assessment

Living a digital life gives you great freedom, but the cumulative effects of laptop or desktop use can lead to pain, injury and even permanent disability.

If you work on a computer a lot, you need to ensure that your space is set up safely.

Carried out by an experienced Osteopath, an ergonomic Assessment completely removes the uncertainty you have around used your laptop.

Don’t let the pain and uncertainty of prolonged computer use impact your energy levels, productivity, and performance any longer.

Common signs of poor ergonnomic set up.

These are the types of injures commonly caused by poor ergonomic desk setup:

  • LOWER BACK PAIN

When you spend a lot of time sitting, the structures in your lower back are under a lot of stress. This can lead to damage and surgery.

  • MID BACK PAIN

Ever feel knots between your shoulder blades or the feeling of a knife in your back? You are already showing signs of overload to your mid-back.

  • NECK PAIN

Looking down at a laptop screen puts a massive load on the delicate structures in the base of your neck. This can impact the nerves in your arms.

  • HAND AND WRIST PAIN

Between typing, texting, and scrolling, our hands are always active. This repetitive movement can lead to overload, pain, swelling, and numbness.
