Nowadays, small, medium and large companies have in their ranks with workers who develop their daily task, depending on their field of action, manipulating heavy objects, doing repetitive movements or in front of a computer adopting bad postures, being in most cases, positions that are maintained over time. If we add to this the continuous stress in which we live today, in the future we will have a worker who will lower your work performance with the consequent loss for the company, resulting in many cases in a sick leave.
There comes into scene the Labor Mutual, when we already have the injured worker and in many cases the recovery that is made is protocolized, overcrowded and scarce, returning the employee to his job in a precarious state of health. Our experience in the treatment of injuries generated in the workplace shows us that a Appropriate physiotherapy treatment could prevent and recover these injuries that can affect the performance of the staff and therefore, avoid the decline in the overall profitability of the company.
Some of the causes that generate these occupational health problems are:
Manual manipulation of loads: Maneuver heavy or uncomfortable to transport objects generates an additional force that in many cases leads to injury. Many times knowing how to handle these objects prevents injury, although once it appears, understand what has happened to us, know how to act, suppress false myths, know our limits and the role of physiotherapy, avoid chronicity.
Repetitive movements: Working on, for example, an assembly line, generates these repetitive movements that result in repetitive micro-trauma. Knowing alternatives to perform our task and follow-up sessions mean that the pathology is not developed.
Maintained postures: Very typical in administrative staff. The functional readjustment together with the ergonomics and the rest 5 minutes approximately every hour doing some soft exercises, help to avoid muscular injuries like the well-known contractures or tendonitis.
Poor postural hygiene: Avoid vicious attitudes, know how to sit or know simple "tricks" if we spend the day standing, avoid bad mechanics when performing an action. Muscle rebalancing or postural reeducation help us avoid possible injuries.
Stress: The "disease" of the 21st century in our society. In constant growth due to the psychological pressure to which we are subjected for labor causes, emotional, family, economic factors, etc. This will help us muscle relaxation treatments and psychological support.
Unforeseen work accidents: The less common ones like falls or blows that generate a huge range of injuries also have a place in our service.
