WORKPLACE INJURIES

OCCUAPTIONAL MUSCULO-SKELETAL INJURIES ACCOUNT FOR OVER 60% OF THE 350 MILLION WORKING DAYS A YEAR LOST IN BRITAIN, AND NOT JUST FROM HEAVY INDUSTRY; WORKERS OUTSIDE OF HEAVY WORK HAVE A VERY HIGH RATE OF PROBLEMS. NEW TECHNOLOGY, WHETHER IT BE AUTOMATED PRODUCTION LINES OR COMPUTER WORK STATIONS, CAN ALSO TAKE ITS TOLL ON THE MUSCULO-SKELETAL SYSTEM.

MANY PEOPLE EXPERIENCE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT AS A RESULT WHICH CAN AFFECT THEIR WELL-BEING AND THEIR WORK. A RECENT SURVEY SHOWS THAT ONE IN TEN PATIENTS TREATED BY MANIPULATION CONSIDER THE ONSET OF THEIR SYMPTOMS TO HAVE BEEN WORK RELATED. THE HUMAN BODY EVOLVED AT A TIME WHEN PHYSICAL AND MENTAL REQUIREMENTS WERE DIFFERENT, AND MODERN WORK PRACTICE POSITIONING MAY MEAN USING OURSELVES IN A WAY TO WHICH WE ARE NOT SUITED.

SIGNIFICANT GROUPS OF ILLNESSES DUE TO WORK ARE DISORDERS OF THE MUSCLES, TENDONS AND JOINTS, PARTICULARLY IN THE BACK, HANDS AND ARMS. SYMTOMS VARY FROM MILD ACHES AND PAINS TO SEVERE PAIN AND DISABILITY. OUR PRACTITIONERS`S UNDERSTANDING OF ACTIVE ANATOMICAL USE IS IDEALLY SUITED TO UNDERSTAND, SOLVE AND TO EXPLAIN WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

RINGMER NATURAL HEALTH CLINIC PRACTITIONERS ARE SKILLED AT DISCOVERING THE UNDERLYING CAUSES OF PAIN, USING FURTHER TESTING WHERE NECESSARY AND IN CLINIC COMBINING QUESTIONING, EXAMINATION AND PALPATION WITH THEIR HANDS BOTH TO GAIN INFORMATION AND TO TREAT INJURIES. TREATMENT TECHNIQUES MAY INCLUDE SOFT TISSUE STRETCHING, RYTHMIC PASSIVE JOINT MOVEMENTS OR JOINT MANIPULATIONS, ALL TO IMPROVE THE RANGE OF MOVEMENTS OF A JOINT, REDUCE PAIN, HEAL THE UNDERLYING INJURY, AND TO SEEK OUT AND TREAT THE LONG TERM CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM(S).

THE RINGMER NATURAL HEALTH CLINIC PRACTITIONERS TREAT BACK, NECK AND A WIDE RANGE OF OTHER CONDITIONS THAT MAY BE RELATED TO THE WORKPLACE, INCLUDING TENSION HEADACHES AND MIGRAINE, AND THEY CAN GIVE REMEDIAL ADVICE AND SUGGEST PREVENTATIVE EXERCISES. MANIPULATION IS THE BEST PROFESSION TO GIVE ADVICE ON POSTURE ERGONOMICS AND POSITIONING IN THE WORKPLACE TO ERADICATE ANY SUCH CAUSES THAT MAY BE CONSTANTLY AGGRAVATING OR CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

FOR THE EMPLOYEE:
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO CONSULT A GP BEFORE A VISIT TO A PRACTITIONER, WE WILL REFER YOU TO THEM IF OUR DIAGNOSIS REVELS THIS TO BE NECESSARY. A NUMBER OF LARGE COMPANIES HAVE RETAINED OUR PRACTITIONERS AS PART OF THEIR PERMANENT COMPANY HEALTH TEAMS. MANY SMALLER COMPANIES HAVE ALSO BENEFITTED FROM LIAISON WITH US, SO WE CAN ADVISE ON MANAGEMENT OF PROBLEMS AND CORRECT POSTURE AND MOVEMENT AND GIVE STAFF INSTRUCTION ON THE BACK CARE AND PREVENTIVE EXERCISES. INVOLVING US WITH STAFF PROGRAMMES CAN LEAD TO A FITTER, MORE PRODUCTIVE WORKFORCE, IMPROVED MORALE, INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY AND LESS TIME OFF THROUGH MUSCULOSKELETAL ILL-HEALTH. A PRACTITIONER CAN VISIT A WORKPLACE AND VERY COST-EFFECTIVELY REDUCE WORKPLACE RELATED INJURIES.

FOR THE EMPLOYER:
OVER THE 25 YEARS OF OUR HISTORY A NUMBER OF LOCAL COMPANIES HAVE RETAINED OUR PRACTITIONERS AS PART OF THEIR PERMANENT COMPANY HEALTH TEAMS. MANY SMALLER COMPANIES HAVE ALSO BENEFITTED FROM LIAISON WITH US, CREATING MARKED REDUCTIONS IN TIME OFF WORK AND RAISED MORALE. THUS WE CAN ADVISE THE MANAGEMENT TEAM ON THE CORRECT POSTURE AND MOVEMENT AND GIVE STAFF INSTRUCTION ON THE BACK CARE AND PREVENTIVE EXERCISES. CONTACT THE ABOVE PRACTICE REGARDING THIS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN USING THE SERVICE.
