Biomechanics & Ergonomics
The science of assessing the effects of internal and external forces acting on the body and how these effect function and performance.
More specifically is the effect that the work environment has on the body.
All our chartered physiotherapists are highly skilled in the area of assessment of biomechanical and postural misalignment. We are expert in exercise prescription and can devise a custom made rehabilitation programme to treat, correct and prevent recurrence of injury.
We will advise on external factors, orthotics, seating, computer or workstation organisation to reduce strain on the body. This in combination with an exercise programme (which can be supported by our personal trainer /Pilates instructors) is the optimal approach to long term recovery and health from injury even if it is a first incident /protracted injury
