In the UK, 131 million workdays are lost due to sickness, with 31 million being from musculoskeletal problems such as neck and back pain. The majority of these injuries are caused by incorrect lifting and bending or from poor posture when sat at a computer. Ensuring you and your employees minimize the amount of sick days taken due to these problems it is important to get specialist advice on how to overcome these issues. It may seem time consuming and costly now but in the long run it could save you a lot more money and ultimately resolve your pain.
Here at Lightwater Health & Chiropractic we aim to provide as much information as possible to help improve your working environment. Sometimes, it can be as simple as altering your computer screen, which can make your pain disappear.
In regards to patients with work related injuries, we focus on treating the main cause with hands on treatment, educating and illustrating correct posture and lifting techniques and providing exercises to do at your desk or at home to prevent reoccurrence. Diet and nutrition advice is also essential to prevent that 3pm sugar craving and lack of energy.
We believe prevention is better than cure so join a number of our other companies and patients and book yourself and employees in for treatment and reassessments every couple of months to limit reoccurring pain and reduce the number of sick days.
We offer memberships for regular customers as we feel you should be rewarded for looking after your health.
