Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the science of designing a workplace to fit the individual using it. If you are at the same work station for long periods, a proper ergonomic design of your work station is needed to help prevent repetitive strain injuries, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term problems such as lower back pain, sciatica, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome

I have suffered with lower back pain for the last 15 years. During that time I have spent many thousands of Euros on Physiotherapy and visits to various Chiropractic Clinics in Dublin and Wicklow. I was never totally pain free during that time so I decided after hearing their advertisement on East Coast Fm to give East Coast Physio in Ashford a try.

I had the opinion up to now that the old saying "if you once have a bad back you will always have one " was true but I now know that this is not the case, as having had only 5 sessions at East Coast Physio I am now pain free for the first time in 15 years. I would like to thank Catherine and recommend their Clinic to anyone suffering from pain ...it certainly worked for me.
