Over 180 million work days are lost each year in Britain through occupational injuries such as back pain and repetitive strain injuries (RSI) at great cost to the economy. Injuries are not just disabling for individuals but extremely costly for employers, causing a £5 billion burden on industry.
Poor posture can contribute to daily aches and pain whether you sit at the PC incorrectly, lift heavy loads or drive for prolonged periods. Types of injuries due to work include disorders of muscles, ligaments, joints especially in the back, hands and arms. Osteopaths are skilled at discovering underlying causes of occupational injuries and can give advice on correct posture, work station set-up and preventative exercises.
