Assessing and customising the workstation is only half the story. If the user’s posture is habitually compressed or tense, this will have as much impact on musculo-skeletal health and wellbeing as a poorly set up desk.
Here are some of the classic postural patterns experienced by desk based employees:
- Hunched shoulders
- Head poking posture
- Jaw tension
- Slumped spines
- Over gripping of mice, phones and pens causing hand tension
- Restricted breathing
- Fixed or rigid sedentary postures leading to stiffness and discomfort
- Leg tension
At Optimum Performance Training we excel in both analysis of postural issues and strategies for improving posture to create more ease and comfort at the desk. These strategies are based on the Alexander Technique, a tried and tested method for improving both performance and posture.
Individual Posture and Performance Training sessions and Group Training Sessions are available. Please contact us for further details.
