 Companies Physiotherapy 

To contribute to developing motivational, healthy environments and activities for workers, I offer talks on prevention of injuries related to sedentary work or manual load transportation, massages, ergonomic assessments of work stations, and workplace exercise.


According to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, every year millions of European workers, from across professions and sectors, are affected by work-related musculoskeletal injuries. European studies show that musculoskeletal injuries, specifically in the back, neck and upper limbs, are a health risk that comes at an increasing cost.

Musculoskeletal injuries are normally reported by European workers with any work-related health problem: 30% complain of backache; 17% complain of muscle pain in the arms and legs; 45% complain of pain caused by tiring postures, many of which are associated with manual movement of heavy loads at work.

The data indicates that, each year, over 30% of European workers suffer from back pain, corresponding to 44 million employees.

These health problems range from discomfort and slight pain to more acute pain requiring leave from work and medical and hospital treatment.

Treatment and recovery are often unsatisfactory, especially in chronic cases.

To help your company buck this trend, my physiotherapy services are at your entire disposal. Don't hesitate to contract them and improve your company’s health.

All my talks aim to discuss, guide and promote health and safety at work. I intend to raise awareness of the importance of a cautious attitude, allowing for recognition and correction of harmful conditions and practices in the workplace, and helping employees to retrieve values forgotten in the rush of daily life.

The topics of my talks are approached in an objective, clear and practical way, avoiding excessive use of technical language.

All talks last for an average of one hour.



Talk on prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders.

This talk provides clarification on work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD), their associated symptoms, causes and risk factors, and ways to prevent these types of injuries.

► 45% pain caused by tiring postures;
► 35% backache;
► 17% muscle pain in the arms and legs.

Workplace exercise takes place on site and lasts an average of 15 minutes. It consists of stretching and strengthening exercises for the muscle structures involved in daily occupational tasks, and of decompression, motor skill and attention exercises.

Workplace Assessment

This service aims to evaluate whether employees’ postures in the workplace should be corrected, and whether work tools are used ergonomically.

Assessments are performed on an individual basis, and active participation from employees is expected.

This means that all implemented measures are adapted to individual needs, aiming not only for well-being during the working day, but also for prevention of incorrect posture and work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) over the course of time.
