Great news! 😀
After popular demands, we are offering postural assessments for work places 🙌
Are you a business owner? manager of a company? or employed? Whether you are an office worker or manual worker we have got it covered: we offer postural assessments by an Osteopath within your workplace to help you or your employees to adopt a better posture.
The aim is to reduce any aches or pain due to poor posture at work and to prevent any musculoskeletal issues in the long-term which is one of the major causes of sick leave in a work place.
What is a postural assessment?
As part of our master degree in Osteopathy we are highly trained to examine our patients standing and sitting in order to find areas of restrictions within the musculoskeletal system which could have an impact on your posture. Poor posture can cause aches and pain but in the long term, it can also have an impact on your digestive system and your general health if left untreated.
As part of our assessment we offer a standing and sitting examination and we discuss with you the areas that would need treatment if you were a patient at the clinic. We will also give you some advice to deal with poor posture and how to improve it the easy way. It's not as easy as "sit up and stand up straight". Our advice is tailored to each patient depending on their occupation, hobbies and morphology.
What we offer a postural assessment per individual. It is not a treatment and it is not a desk assessment. There is no obligation to book in for a treatment following your postural assessment.
We offer this service in Essex but we can also entend it to London on request. If you think this could benefit your employees or yourself or know someone who might be interested, feel free to contact us for further information on 07730 469734 or by email:

Feeling minor discomfort for a couple days or so after training is normal. However if the level of discomfort if relatively higher than usual, just had a sport injury or the symptoms persist for more than a few days and stopping you for your usual activities, it might be worth seeking advice from your Osteopath. We understand that pain and injuries gets in the way of training and can be frustrating.

As an Osteopath, we use a wide range of stretching techniques, soft tissue work, joint manipulations, strapping or taping to help the speeding the healing process, relieve pain but also prevent this injury to occur again. Treatment is tailored depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis.

As well as treating injuries, we may offer you advice about optimal nutrition or optimal performance (i.e.: stretching exercises, advice, tips, sport related diet/supplements..) to help you achieve your goals injury free.

We are trained to determine whether or not your injury or discomfort is due to a more serious underlying problem, or if it arises from a mechanical strain which lead to a sport injury.

Saturday 24th June is scoliosis awareness day and we are offering a FREE postural assessment and FREE advice with no obligation for treatment.

Scoliosis is a sideway curvature in the spine. There are two types of scoliosis:

Functional scoliosis can develop as a result of our everyday lives (lifting or carrying heavy things, sitting at your desk, poor posture, following a trauma...) which can be resolved.
Structural scoliosis is a spinal deformity which usually starts in children to early teens before puberty which is usually manageable.

Not all scoliosis sufferers experience pain or problems, but sometimes it can be debilitating on a daily basis, restrict physical activities and can lead to reduced lung capacity, extra pressure on the heart and severe back problems.

Treatment of Scoliosis depends on the severity of the curvature and the type of scoliosis. Functional scoliosis are common and can usually be resolved with treatment. When it comes to structural scoliosis, Osteopathy can help by gently increasing the range of movement the thoracic, lumbar spine and to keep all the joints mobile. Mobilisation of the pelvis is also important to help regaining a better symmetry in leg length which will help optimal function of the hips, lower and upper back which can reduced pain. Osteopathic techniques can also help with open up the chest and rib cage area to allow scoliosis sufferers to breath better due to the "hunch" over posture around the thoracic area.

Despite never being able to correct structural scoliosis completely, you can also manage the symptoms at home with some simple exercises.

If you would like to book your free assessment this Saturday Force Fitness Essex​ call us on 07730 469734 or email us at to avoid disappointment.

The health and safety executive estimate that in 2013 and 2014 there were 526,000 cases of work related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and about 42% of all work related illnesses MSDs are the second biggest cause of absence from work, effecting over 1m people at a cost to the economy (estimated in 2007) of £7bn.
If you are self-employed, taking time off work with musculoskeletal problem can have a devastating effect on you and your family’s financial security, so getting back to work as quickly as possible is essential. That can seem impossible when you’re in pain and unable to complete your usual daily activities, but movement really helps.
The Work Foundation recommend that you work with your employers and healthcare professionals if effected by MSDs to find ways of returning to work as soon as possible using a combination of treatment, lifestyle changes and adjustment to working conditions. They also suggest that early intervention is key to recovery, hastening your return to a normal, healthy lifestyle and limiting the negative psychological effects of an extended period of sick leave.

How our osteopaths can help:

• Fast access: our osteopaths are usually able to see you within a couple of days of seeking an appointment. As osteopaths are primary healthcare professionals you don’t need to be referred by a GP unless you are seeking NHS funded treatment or your health insurance provider insists that you see a GP first.

• Treatment and advice: once they have assessed your condition an osteopath will usually begin treatment straight away. They can also provide advice on how to avoid making the condition worse or re-injuring yourself.

• Inexpensive treatment: Many MSDs can be treated by osteopaths over a few visits.

• Fit notes: A fit note provides your employer with advice on what they can do to help an employee return safely to work. This may include adjustments to working conditions, such as reduced hours, a different work station set up, or recommending avoiding activities that may prevent or slow recovery, heavy lifting for example. Osteopaths are able to issue fit notes which will give employers this expert advice.

• Onward referral: With your permission, osteopaths are able to share information about your health with other healthcare professionals, such as your GP. If your condition requires the intervention of another expert, an osteopath can provide a letter of referral detailing the diagnosis and any treatment that they have been able to provide, which may help you more rapidly get the help you need to return to health.

When to use an ice pack?
Ice is a natural anti-inflammatory that prevents and limits the amount of swelling (inflammation). It also reduces pain and by numbing the area of discomfort. Ice pack should be used during the acute phase of pain (when the pain is above a 5 on a scale out of 10). If you are using an ice pack, make sure you are wrapping the ice pack around a thin cloth to avoid skin burns. Use the ice for about 10 minutes ON/ 10 minutes OFF and repeat that process as many times as possible during the day.

When to use a hot pack?
Heat helps relaxing the muscles, relieves muscle spasms and improves blood flow. Heat should be used in the post acute phase. Make sure you are wrapping the heat pack around a towel before applying to your skin. Apply the Heat for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
