Incorrect posture and poor work station setup contributes significantly to injury and pain in a large proportion of desk based workers. A correctly set up work station has an important place in facilitating correct posture. Posture pertains to the alignment of muscles, bones and joints for optimal position and function.
A thorough ergonomic work station assessment, alterations and recommendations about your work station and your posture from a Total Therapy clinical team member will help alleviate pain or symptoms in a number of conditions, and may assist in long term injury prevention. This can be conducted as an independent assessment, or in many cases is done as an adjunct to your physiotherapy treatment.
