London Osteopaths Warn Office Work Can Be A Pain In The Neck

Leading London Osteopaths, Posture Dynamics have issued a stark warning to desk-bound office workers, citing long hours spent pouring over notes and computers as potentially hazardous to their health.

Daren Fletcher, founder of Victoria-based clinic Posture Dynamics, said: “Briton’s spend more hours in the office than any other nation in Europe and this has an undeniable impact on our overall health and well being. Studies show that over a million UK workers experience some form of Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) each year.

“As demands on our time increase we multi-task which leads to bad habits such as cradling the telephone between ear and shoulder to allow us to write at the same time. Repeating this kind of action is extremely bad for the neck and shoulder area, leading to soreness, aching muscles and even long-term health problems.”

Sitting in a chair for hours on end while confined to the office can lead to rigidity and stiffness. To combat this and provide relief from repetitive strain injury and back pain, the Osteopaths at Posture Dynamics recommend short walks around the office every hour. Even standing up while talking on the telephone can make a difference by easing out muscles cramped from staying in the fixed sitting position.

Posture Dynamics treat many conditions related to the work place and can offer remedial advice and preventative exercises. The dedicated Posture Dynamics Osteopathic Care for the Workplace programme teaches corporate slaves that their dedication needn’t result in painful muscular conditions.

Good practice guidelines extends outside of the office environment according to the Ealing Clinic -dedicated employees taking laptops and paperwork home should shop around to find a rucksack-style computer case and vary the position of carriage to prevent continuous strain on the neck, shoulder and back.
