Office workers often face health issues related to poor posture and sedentary behavior, including musculoskeletal pain, repetitive strain injuries (RSIs), headaches, eye strain, a sedentary lifestyle, and stress.
How can we help you?
Sports Therapy plays a crucial role in addressing these problems by focusing on posture correction, strengthening exercises, and ergonomic adjustments. Sports Therapy treatments work to alleviate musculoskeletal pain through manual therapy and targeted exercises, design programs to prevent and manage RSIs. They also promote overall well-being by addressing the physical consequences of a sedentary lifestyle and incorporating stress management techniques. Regular treatments can help you mitigate these issues, prevent long-term complications, and enhance your overall health and productivity.
Posture Correction: We can assess your posture and provide guidance on proper ergonomics. We may suggest adjustments to your desk, chair, and computer setup to ensure that your body is in a neutral and comfortable position.
Muscle Strengthening and Flexibility: Prolonged sitting can lead to muscle imbalances and stiffness. We can design exercises to strengthen core muscles, improve flexibility, and address specific muscle groups affected by prolonged sitting.
Pain Management: If you're experiencing pain or discomfort, we can identify the root cause and develop a personalised treatment plan. This may include sports massage, manual therapy, exercises, and techniques to alleviate pain and promote healing.
Stretching Exercises: We can teach you stretching exercises to counteract the effects of prolonged sitting. Regular stretching can improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and enhance overall mobility.
Desk Exercises: We can provide simple exercises that can be performed at your desk to break up long periods of sitting. These exercises can help improve circulation, reduce stiffness, and prevent fatigue.
Prevention of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI): We can help prevent and manage conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries that may result from performing repetitive tasks at a desk.
Customised Exercise Programs: We can design personalised exercise programs based on an individual's specific needs, taking into consideration any existing injuries or conditions.
