All physiotherapists at SMPC are experienced in assessing office ergonomic setups for all personnel requirements. A poor ergonomic setup can lead to stress on your joints, muscles and tendons. Repetition in a compromising posture is one of the most common causes of injury in the workplace. Book an appointment with an South Melbourne physio to get a personalized ergonomic assessment for your individual requirements today.

How We Can Help

Assessment

SMPC Physiotherapists can assess your workplace offsite or give you all the advice and skills you need to set it up appropriately yourself. Have you considered your monitor height and distance from your eyes, type of mouse, type of keyboard, desk height, chair position and the need for a foot stool. All of these variables setup correctly can determine the optimum capacity for your muscles and joints.

We can also accurately diagnose your work-related injury and give you the education and guidelines you require to manage any current issues and prevent and further injuries from occurring.
