How We Can Help
SMP Physiotherapists can assess your worksite offsite or via telehealth to give you all the advice and skills you need to set it up appropriately yourself.
Have you considered your monitor height, the distance it is away from your eyes, type of mouse, type of keyboard, desk height and chair position. 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 any further injury from occuring.
Based on your diagnosis, we provide a range of treatments administered by our experienced physiotherapists, who are skilled in manual therapy, remedial massage, joint mobilisations, dry needling, stretching, pilates, exercise rehabilitation, postural correction and taping
To minimise the recurrence of your ergonomic related injuries we offer group or individual exercise sessions for your employees at your workplace. Inquire today to hear about the available options for your staff.
