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.

    Our reviews

    When I was booking an appointment on the phone, the person was very friendly and made sure I was booked in as soon as was possible. Subsequent alterations of booked appointments have been dealt with quickly and queries answered straight away. The initial assessment by Craig felt thorough and he made sure that all possibilities were explored for the cause of my knee pain, not just going on my my description of the symptoms. Also he took his time in explaining why I was getting knee pain and the importance of how all the muscles work together in your leg, it was an education. Also my exercise programme was very quickly put together which is easily accessible from the handy app. Overall I am very satisfied with my initial assessment.
    The entire team at Physio Lounge provided a Very professional service through out from the very first contact with the administrative staff for booking the session (Kirsty and Izzy) and then a very professional clinical consultation with Craig who was really interested to get to understand my symptoms followed by a thorough clinical examination and thereafter the hands on therapy . He demonstrated and then asked me to demonstrate that I am following the therapeutic exercises appropriately which was then followed by a video of demonstration of the exercises that he emailed over to me to reinforce the exercise technique is correctly followed. I felt that Craig and his team provided me with a truly professional, non rushed ,dedicated service with patient care at the centre of the practice which has become a rarity these days .
    "I only had 3 visits and I was impressed with the booking system and the app rather than paper exercises I’ve had on previous physio visits. When it was evident I wasn’t getting any better Tom arranged for further tests with an orthopaedic consultant and I was diagnosed and x-rayed within the week.
    Thomas was an excellent, professional and friendly physio and I enjoyed the sessions and I have been left with some good exercises to carry on with.
    Great first session with Craig today. You can't believe how one session can change your life with 2 years pain . Highly recommend.
    Excellent, professional service, treatment plan for home on the app is excellent would highly recommend.
