Pain is one of the commonest words used in today’s life. Thanks to the lifestyle and eating
habits. It is very easy to think if you don’t have to do strenuous physical labor you can’t
injure yourself. But actually, office workers face a lot of physical pain due to sedentary
working style. Bad posture during work is one of the main reasons of pains and problems.
To overcome this pain, one need the understanding of which workplace habits are causing
the pain and problems.

Voice it before the problem starts

It is unfortunate that people wait until the pain becomes problem. However, proactively
reducing the risk of employees developing MSDs before they arise can prevent future
pain and boost productivity.

The key to combating MSDs is spreading awareness about the harmful activities and
how to tackle the issues.

Physiotherapists have a deep and better understanding of the strains caused by poor
working habits and the contributing factors which lead to the development of
musculoskeletal problems. They can have even better understanding of the problem by
speaking to the employer, they understand the working patterns and needs of staff to
create a tailored strategy.

This includes taking a holistic view of the patient, focusing on increasing physical
activity, improving aspects of emotional wellbeing which can contribute to pain,
enhancing an employee’s general health and wellbeing, as well as traditional
interventions such as workplace ergonomics.

A healthy and knowledgeable workforce not only boosts productivity by reducing the
number of sick days but means employees are free from the distraction of pain and
stress while at work.

Identifying the problem

Often, MSDs go hand in hand with poor mental health, with constant pain and
discomfort being linked to stress and anxiety. Employees avoiding physical triggers
could find their mental health improved, as their mood is lifted and they achieve better
quality sleep thanks to relief from the nagging pain.

Make it a better place to work

Making your workplace fit for all employees will drastically reduce absences and those
who recognize the positive steps being taken to ensure a better productivity.

This is something that has been in existence since ancient times. In Greece, a small metallic instrument called ‘Strigil’ for therapeutic purposes. Even in traditional Chinese Medicine a similar technique called ‘Gua Sha’ is in practice that increases the blood circulation to facilitate the supply of blood and oxygen to the soft tissues. In modern world, many similar techniques are in use like, Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (Astym), fascial abrasion technique, and Graston technique.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue mobilization (IASTM) is relatively gentle and has been found effective for acute injury rehabilitation and ligamentous injuries. The instrument is not a replacement of the therapist’s hands but it enhances the ability to detect adhesions and soft tissue restrictions.

The surface of the instrument minimizes the force but maximize the force delivered to the tissues, making it possible to stimulate points in deep areas. IASTM is able to give positive effects in a shorter period, increasing the blood circulation and nutrient to the affected area, resulting in new collagen formation which eventually regenerates the injured tissue.

Today IASTM is successfully been used in treatment of sports injury. IASTM can significantly shortens the rehabilitation period.

Benefits of IASTM

• Mobilize muscles, tendons, and ligaments to decrease pain
• Improve mobility
• Stimulate rehabilitation and recovery
• IASTM is indicated to treat the following injuries:
• Various tendinopathies such as tennis or golfer’s elbow and Achilles tendinitis
• Chronic muscle strain
• Chronic ligamentous strains
• Excessive scarring
• Running-related injuries, including plantar fasciitis
• Iliotibial band syndrome (IT Band)

Sports rehabilitation is an aspect that is concerned specifically with the rehabilitation and prevention of injury in order to achieve optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness. Sports therapists usually prescribe exercise for strength, endurance and re-conditioning.


Mainly sports rehabilitation has 2 key goals:
First – to help patient regain their pre-injury levels of physical stamina and physical fitness, and Secondly – strengthen the individual by designing programs specific in strength, power and endurance, which will bring the injured person to return-to-sport.
To achieve this usually physiotherapists follow these 7 principles. This ensures the optimal recovery and return-to-sport for the sportsperson.

  1. Performance Analysis
  2. Continuous Goal Setting
  3. Combination of Physiotherapy and Sports Science
  4. Individually Tailored Sports Rehabilitation Program
  5. Variation of Program Based on Patient Progress
  6. Re-analysis Prior to Return-to-Sport
  7. Prevention of Re-injury
    Each of these principles work in bringing the injured person back to normal and even beyond their original performance levels.
    At Align Body, we make sure to design a rehabilitation program keeping in mind these 7 principles. Our endevour remains to work on aspects like strength, power, mobility, flexibility, endurance, reaction, agility, biochemicals and also the physiological state of the mind. In sports rehabilitation, performance analysis is utilized to access the physical capabilities of a person.
    At Align Body, we initially perform the performance analysis and find the root cause and/or factors contributing to the injury. The final stage of sports rehabilitation is the prevention of future and/or re-injury.
    We believe in being with the patient emotionally through out the sessions, it is very important to rebuild the enthusiasm and zest for life within the patient.

What is Dry Needling?
It is a technique where small needles are inserted into the myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. This stimulates the healing response of the body. It reduces the pain and discomfort.


How it works?
Fine needles are inserted into the points, a local twitch response (LTR) can be elicited. Through this, decreased muscle contraction, reduced chemical irritation, improved flexibility can be achieved. This also provides short term relief in the pain. The aim of the dry needling depends on the patient’s pathology. Inserting an acupuncture-like needle into the trigger point relaxes the muscles, boosts blood flow, diminishes inflammation, and triggers a healing response. This treatment also improves nerve communication and activates the release of your body’s natural pain relievers.


Benefits of Dry Needling:
• Get fast pain relief
• Better circulation
• Immediate reduction in local of widespread pain
• Healing starts immediately
• Regain your range of motion

Things like tight and painful muscles can restrict your movement. If you have multiple trigger points, you may experience severely limited mobility. And when you’re not active, your muscles weaken and lose mass. We at Align Body, often combine dry needling with a physical therapy program to rebuild the strength and fully restore the range of motion. Physical therapy also retrains your muscles, and this helps to prevent future trigger points.

Speed up the recovery

when you suffer an injury or had surgery, the best way to heal is to move the body. Physiotherapy becomes the primary treatment during your recovery. Though adding Dry Needling in the treatment can accelerate the healing process. It improves chronic pain conditions. Dry Needling can be beneficial in problems like, Myofascial and Fibromyalgia.
To learn more about Dry Needling give a call to Align Body today.
