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

Thanks to the physios in ECP I was able to receive top notch treatment and overall therapy while I was home and laid up with an injury. Not having to travel to Dublin to get therapy I was confident in, was such a huge help to my rehabilitation.

The hours of work they did has undoubtedly aided my recovery and gotten my body into better condition than ever.
