Physio/Physical Therapist Troy with arms folded outside his Strandhill based Physical Therapy/Physiotherapy practice

WORKERS operating from home are presenting with injuries due to their temporary setup not quite being right.
Strandhill based Troy McKenna who owns Sligo Physical Therapy says since reopening, he has already seen a number of clients who have been working from home during the lockdown with injury due to their temporary home office set up.

Troy’s advice to clients is to set up an ergonomic space where repetitive stress issues and postural problems are avoided. Cramped working conditions can play havoc with our musculoskeletal health. When working from home it’s tempting to slouch on the couch or sit propped up in bed with a laptop. People shoehorned themselves into whatever space was available at short notice and have spent the last couple of months hunched over on video calls, sitting at unsuitable tables on unsuitable chairs and using laptops, keyboards, mice and monitors positioned at bad heights and awkward angles.

Troy has been in business for 14 years from the bustling Strandhill village and offers a range of physical therapy/ physiotherapy services from its beachfront clinic.

In order to reopen, Sligo Physical Therapy has introduced new ‘Stay Safe’ social distancing systems ensuring the clinic operates in the safest way possible with PPE equipment and temperature checks for both practitioner and patients.
