How to help reduce/prevent aches & pains during day-to-day activities
As a physiotherapist I meet a large number of people who come for treatment who cite environmental factors such as their keyboard, mouse, desk, chair, car seat, sofa, bed amongst other things as contributors or causes of their pain.

It’s therefore hugely important that the factors that contribute to the pain are addressed to get to the bottom of problems long term.
