Ergonomics Course


I have just completed a fascinating course on Ergonomics, Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessment and Moving & Handling procedures.

This course is recognised by the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.

The course allows an Osteopath to assess a person’s working position. There are normally a number of improvements that can immediately be made to make a person more comfortable.

These improvements may include changing desk and chair heights, location of VDU, position of mouse, key board and screen, requirement of feet rests etc..

There are a number of conditions such as Low Back Pain, Headaches, Neck Pain, Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) that are the result of poor work station arrangements.

There are a number of Non-Expensive aids, such as Foot Rests, Monitor Stands, Ergonomic Key Boards & Mice, Adjustable Desks and Document Holders that can, along with finding the best possible working position, help solve the problems associated with a Bad Workstation Arrangement.

The Work Station Assessment is all carried out in accordance with Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.

David Drysdale has worked as an Osteopath in the West End of Glasgow since 1996. David combines a wide range of techniques when treating a patient, ranging from Osteopathic Manipulation, Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Nutrition and Exercise. Treatments are tailored for the Patient. It is understood that some people simply do not like osteopathic manipulation, while others like Deep Tissue Massage, or benefit from Cranio-Sacral Therapy. There are different ways of treating people who are in pain, and providing the treatment that works for you is very important. Osteopathy is well known for treating Headaches, Neck & Back Pain, but many other conditions such as migraines, frozen shoulder and arthritis can all respond well to good Osteopathic treatment.

Many Thanks…………….. Davy Drysdale
