Our bodies are designed to work best when we stand nice and upright – our heart and lungs, and digestive organs all work most efficiently in this position.
When your posture is challenged by the nature of the work you do, and your body is repeatedly subjected to being in a cramped, desk-working or driving positions, this can lead to a host of biomechanical problems.
A lot of patients who present in the clinic are constricted in their working lives, but still want to live full and active lifestyles outside of working hours. This conflict of activities can produce strains that limit their pursuit of leisure and sports activities.
Our practitioners can give you advice on minimising the effects of work on your body.
