Occupational Health/ Work injuries

At Mission Bay Physiotherapy we can provide-

• Treatment- of occupational injury, ie; back pain, OOS.

Workstation assessments– Sitting for long periods of time in a fixed position at a desk and only making small but repetitive movements when using a keyboard or mouse, can lead to muscle fatigue, discomfort and even pain. Work related upper limb disorder (WRULD) is a term commonly used to describe a range of symptoms, previously known as RSI or OOS, which cause pain in the upper limbs (especially wrists, forearms, shoulders and fingers). At their worst these symptoms can lead in incapacity.

It is important to be aware that the work related aches and pains referred to above are preventable and treatable. We offer comprehensive on-site evaluation and correction of both the workplace and the individual’s interaction with it.

Early discomfort assessments– target early discomfort reporting to reduce recordable injuries and down time. This helps prevent minor episodes of discomfort developing into more long term, costly problems.

Seminars– Training programmes can be focused on key areas such as back care and safe manual handling, safe office work, stress and fatigue, injury management, etc.
