Physiotherapy Tips and Resources

At The School of Physiotherapy we encourage our patients to help themselves. Many injuries, pain or strains can be resolved by a change in habit or some simple exercises.

Tips for the workplace

Here are some tips to help you keep you fit and healthy at work:

  1.     When you take a break—take a proper one! Don't surf the web or answer texts. Every couple of hours get up, take a short walk and stretch your legs.
  2.     Take periodic 'mini-breaks' at your desk every twenty minutes or so – do some stretches to loosen your shoulder and neck muscles and shift position.
  3.     If you work in an open plan office and need to speak to one of your colleagues, get up and walk over to their desk, rather than calling out to them.
  4.     Watch your posture:
  •         Sit close to your work station
  •         Keep the key board at a level that doesn’t require much reaching and isn’t too high or too low
  •         Keep your monitor at eye level
  •         Sit with your legs flexed at 90-degree angle with your feet resting comfortably

Our experienced staff can give you advice for the workplace health, specifically:
  •     Lifting advice
  •     Workplace advice
  •     Manual handling
  •     Keep fit for work advice
  •     Advice tailored to your work place needs.
