Ergonomic Workstation Assessments

Prolonged desk-based working has been shown to have several negative impacts upon both the body and mind due to sub-optimal postures. These impacts can be experienced after a short period of time and without action can lead to longer term chronic musculoskeletal issues.

Sustained poor posture can create a cascade of adaptations, which leads to ‘Tissue’ (muscle, tendon, ligaments) and ‘Joint’ stress creating lingering joint or muscle pain.

At some point in their lives, forty percent of people will get Low Back Pain and sixty percent of people will experience neck pain. This is where proper postural dynamics can help alleviate pain, otherwise, it can lead to chronic conditions, such as:

 

  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • DeQuervain’s Tenosynivitis

 

How Does it Work?

An ergonomic assessment can be carried out either in person where the specialist Physio will attend your place of work or remotely online. Our remote workstation assessments are useful for homeworkers.

Once you’ve arranged an appointment you’ll be sent a pre-assessment questionnaire to complete prior to your workstation assessment. Our online workstation assessments include: 

  • A review of your home working environment and set up
  • Assessment of your sitting and/or standing posture at your workstation
  • A bespoke video exercise programme sent via our mobile application
  • Advice regarding any ergonomic equipment that you may require
  • A summary report and recommendations sent to the line manager

 

Equipment Ordering and Provision

We like to provide solutions for people, solutions that improve function, pain and quality of life. Sometimes in a work environment that can be something as simple as providing a monitor arm or ergonomic mouse. Not only are we able to assess, make recommendations and provide rehab programs, we can also source and provide appropriate equipment for the office environment that will give support, added functionality and comfort.

From laptop stands to standing desks to allow regular postural change, we can provide for all your office needs. We will source, order and fit the equipment to ensure you and your employees get the maximum benefit. Any recommendations made during an assessment can then be put into action in one seamless service ensuring you get the best results as quickly as possible.

    I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys enough. I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon in January this year, and I knew I needed to find a physio with a professional sports background to get me back to the level I needed to be at. They helped me throughout lockdown whenever possible, and was always on hand with any help or advice I needed. Once I became more mobile and had reached the level where I could really start pushing hard again, I was introduced to Tom. This couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was at a level where I was ready to bridge that gap between feeling strong again, but not quite ready for the explosive aspect of my job. Tom recognised straight away what needed to be addressed, and he broke down all the big movements with me over the next few weeks. He took me from not having the confidence in my Achilles to single leg hop, to sprinting close to 100% in the space of 3 weeks. His knowledge is second to none and I’m so grateful to him and the rest of the guys at the physio lounge for getting me back to where I needed to be. Aside from that, all the staff are great people, friendly, and only have you’re best interests at heart.

    Developed severe lower back pain through working from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Phsyio Lounge carried out ergonomic desk assessment (with Craig) and had 4 video physiotherapy sessions with Sam which has worked wonders. Improved with every session, almost pain free, but left fully understanding what i need to do to make the final step be be totally pain free. Initially sceptical about video sessions but they did work effectively. Sam was very professional, fully explained everything in detail throughout the course of treatment. Well impressed with set up. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Sam, thank you Physio Lounge. P.S. The exercises have even improved my golf swing!! Bonus!

    I would like to thank The Physio Lounge for the recent help i received. I had hurt my lower back and was in extreme pain. I thought due to the covid 19 restrictions i would have to suffer. However i contacted the Physio Lounge and a video call was set up . Craig was extremely sympathetic, knowledgeable and professional. He soon set me up with exercises and regular updates. I highly recommend The Physio Lounge .

    Had a virtual assessment with Craig due to a running injury during lockdown. I was so pleased with the virtual appointment and didn’t expect to receive such a fabulous service and excellent advice on a video appointment. Thank you Craig you’ve helped me to continue with my running during lockdown. An excellent service provided even in these difficult times.

    I have been attending The Physio Lounge since September 2019 twice a week after a serious motorcycle accident with very complex injuries. I have nothing but admiration for Craig and his colleagues dealing and treating me. They have shown me total respect, and without doubt have made my recovery better and quicker than I could of ever expected. I am very fortunate that my case manager engaged The Physio Lounge to help and manage the physio treatment I needed. I can not sing loud enough the praises for Craig and his staff in helping me.

    Worked with Craig from the Physio Lounge. He has helped me massively with lower back pain due to over rotation of my spine. He has helped to treat my current symptoms with acupuncture and has also created a bespoke programme for me to follow which has helped to solve the issue on a long term basis. I would highly recommend him and the Physio Lounge!

    I can honestly say that in all my time of training in a gym, bodybuilding and training 100's of clients I have never come across a Physio who is this knowledgeable as Craig. His thirst for learning is evident! He regularly ensures he is up to date with the latest science led studies to ensure he is helping his clients the best way. On top of that he is highly professional and very comfortable to be around. He puts you at ease and listens and asks all the right questions to diagnose you. He is worth traveling to I will never go anywhere else! Thank you Craig, you have changed my life!

    I have been treated by Craig at the Physiolounge several times over the last few years for various different running injuries. I’m always impressed by his knowledge, dedication and skill. He even managed In the last few weeks to remotely diagnose and cure a knee problem I had! I would highly recommend Physiolounge.

    Following a bad skiing injury to my shoulder and fearing the worst, I have been nothing other than thoroughly impressed with the PhysioLounge. I was thankfully able to see Craig for a 'live' consultation pre-lockdown, and then have had 4 online physio sessions which have worked perfectly and through which he has enabled me to build up strength in the shoulder. Not only that, but he has also attended to weaknesses in posture and physique that will hopefully benefit me in future triathlons (looking ahead in faith!)
