Workplace Injury Assessment & Treatment

After assessing your posture, workplace, lifestyle and work patterns, we will devise a treatment program.

People who have been injured on the job have a unique set of circumstances. Often, returning to work is a necessity for the person’s family. A Harmony Physiotherapy Ottawa will develop a treatment plan that is specifically targeted for your circumstances and injury. Goals are set up, and your Harmony Ottawa Physiotherapist will help you achieve these goals. This healthcare professional is your coach and partner in returning back to work. Treatment may include manual therapy, stretching, Acupuncture, Dry Needling, specific exercises, hot and cold treatment, ultrasound, aquatic therapy, and joint mobilization. Physiotherapy at Harmony Physiotherapy Ottawa is a holistic treatment that often combines multiple modalities for recovery.

Neck and arm pain could be a repetitive strain injury (RSI). Repetitive strain injuries are caused by repetitive movement leading to muscular pains or problems with nerves, ligaments, and joints.

Often work-related, the incidence of RSI has risen dramatically with the use of computers, which need only a limited range of movement. Other groups of working people can be affected, including typists, musicians, shop staff and factory workers.

Harmony Physiotherapy Clinic physiotherapists are post graduate educated and experienced in treating muscle, nerve, joint, and ligament complaints. After assessing your posture, workplace, lifestyle and work patterns, we will devise a treatment program. This may include stretching exercises, mobilization and electrotherapy, such as ultrasound, to speed up the healing process.

If treatment is delayed, RSI can take longer to clear up. We also provide information to help minimize your risk.

If you are experiencing an injury which you think could be an RSI, here are some ideas you could try – but remember, this in no way replaces a proper examination or treatment:

  • Review our Harmony Physiotherapy Ottawa workstation assessment, ergonomic workstations download, and our office workstation exercises

  • Take a break: If you are suffering from RSI it really is essential to change whatever you are doing that is causing the problem.

  • Try using your computer mouse in your other hand.
