WHAT IS WORK-RELATED PAIN & INJURY?
Work-related pain and injury refer to physical discomfort and injuries that either occur due to a workplace injury (such as heavy lifting) or where occupational activities result in repetitive strain and overload. These conditions can affect anyone, from office workers to manual laborers.
WHAT DOES IT INVOVLE?
Our work-related pain and injury management services encompass a variety of treatments and strategies, including:
1. In-Depth Comprehensive Assessment
A thorough assessment to determine the cause and root of your pain is the first step in designing a personalised treatment plan. This includes a thorough discussion about your ergonomic set-up and occupational activities.
2. Manual Therapy & Soft Tissue Techniques
A variety of techniques may be used to reduce initial pain and target specific goals such as reducing muscle tension and increasing joint range of motion and mobility. Learn more about our Treatment & Therapy
3. Individual Rehabilitation Program
A tailored exercise and mobility program is then implemented to target areas of weakness and address deficits to enhance posture, strength, and range of motion.
4. Re-assessments & Treatment
Following your initial consultation, a plan is developed in collaboration with you including re-assessment follow-up consultations and appropriate treatment to continue your rehabilitation journey.
5. Support & Guidance

COMMON WORK-RELATED PAIN & INJURIES
We address a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI): Irritation and overload to a muscle, tendon, ligaments, or nerve as a result of repetitive motions and constant use. Can be related to improper techniques and spikes in loading.
Back Pain: Describes a variety of conditions that may cause pain or discomfort, particularly in the lower back. Can occur be related to heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, and poor ergonomics.
Neck & Shoulder Pain: Often seen in office workers due to poor posture, extended computer use, and inappropriate desk set-up.
Sprains & Strains: This can occur as a result of sudden movements that cause the joint to strain beyond its normal range of motion, such as lifting heavy objects and falls/trips.
Work-Related Overuse Injuries: Describes conditions and pain that are the result of repetitive tasks associated with work such as lifting, repeated overhead activities, typing, and use of power tools.
Postural Dysfunction & Imbalance: Occurs when the body's alignment is altered due to workplace postures, increasing the stress on the muscles, joints, and ligaments. Although normal postural deviations exist in the population, imbalances in strength and range of motion can contribute to pain and discomfort.
