Ergonomics addresses the fit between people and their working environment. It is person centred with the primary goal being to reduce stress and prevent injury related to muscle overuse, bad posture and repetitive tasks. It takes account of the abilities and limitations of employees and designs the working environment, including equipment, tools, seating and lighting, to accommodate them.
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries that affect bones, joints muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues. They account for over a third of all work-related injuries and costing employers dearly in terms of missed work days, lost productivity, and finding replacement staff. Bad posture, exposure to vibration, uncomfortable working positions, and physical trauma can all cause MSDs.
By investing the time in developing optimal working processes you will be contributing to your company’s bottom line. More importantly you are making sure your workers are safe, engaged and able to perform their job without impediment.
Some other key benefits of dealing with ergonomics in the workplace will be the competitive advantage that your company is able to leverage in the marketplace with happy, healthy and productive employees.
The main risk factors for developing poor workplace ergonomics are increased forces on the human body, repetitive or sustained awkward postures and repetitive tasks. We will work with you to identify these risk factors by appraising your business practices and working environments. Our business works by working alongside you to find a solution which works with your time and budget. Wellness and workplace ergonomics doesn’t need to be costly.
I have used various services at Perfect Balance Clinic for over three years on and off for a variety of issues as I have been training and picking up injuries, as well as rehab work that needed doing. I have found them to be very professional, as you would expect, however the really interesting thing is their flexibility. They are always able to see me at short notice and fit me in and secondly they are very quickly able to identify the issue I have and use a variety of techniques, which doesn’t limit them to one course of action.Over many years I have used a variety of therapists and am now confident that whenever I have a problem they are just a phone call away and are able to help quickly.
Perfect Balance Clinic provided a solution to what was a long-term unresolved back problem. They brought me back to fitness with expert treatment and have since provided a first rate maintenance regime accommodating sessions around my busy work schedule which has kept me fit and active. I have recommended them to a number of friends and colleagues
I have been using Perfect Balance Clinic for several years, as have members of my family and other friends. Perfect Balance Clinics treatments go way beyond what one might expect – always thoughtful and taking into account how one lives life and work. Their knowledge of the body has also been helpful in identifying ailments in family members that seasoned medics have missed. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
There are very few musculoskeletal practitioners who have the knowledge, skills and ability to think deeply about each individual they treat.
Efficient, helpful and pleasant reception staff compliment expert and knowledgeable therapists which you can trust wholeheartedly
I can't speak highly enough of how much Vijay helped me with a number of issues ranging from neck and back pain to issues in my knees and ankles. I would without doubt recommend him and I can honestly say that he is the best Osteopath that I have received treatment for
