Back pain is the most common complaint reported by working people. Regardless of whether they sit a lot or perform physical work, employees are exposed to overload pain or pain caused by abnormal working habits.
During the COVID-19 pandemic where most office employees started working in the home-office system, the interest in physiotherapy consultations has increased. Employees’ condition is negatively affected by long hours spent in front of the computer and sitting on a mismatched home chair. In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection, many companies have quickly made a decision to switch to work at home. Employees did not have a chance to equip their home offices, for example.
In addition to back pain, people who work (both as labourers and as white-collar workers) suffer from joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder and other symptoms associated with working in a forced body position.
If you notice that your employees are exposed to back and joint pain, or if you do sports together in your company, add a physiotherapy extension when choosing a medical care plan.
Additional visits to a physiotherapist will help your employees avoid pain caused by work in a non-ergonomic position. This way, they will remain fit, be more effective and engaged at work. The care provided by the Back Pain Clinic and the Musculoskeletal System Clinic also reduces losses related to sick leaves and efforts aimed at maintaining the continuity of work on projects and in production.
