Helping you freelance creatives and content solopreneurs work without work-related injuries.
So it doesn’t slow your productivity.
Hi! I’m Ugo
Chartered Physiotherapist, MSc. Ergonomics, MCSP, MHCPC
For almost 20 years, I assessed and treated workers in their workplaces. It was straightforward.
But now, the world of freelancing has exploded and you can work remotely, at home in co-working spaces and even coffee houses. It’s become messy trying to get the ‘ideal’ workspace or workstation within your space. Many times, your workstation setup increases your risk of injury and pain.
I know how it is.
I too developed wrist pain when I started consulting and worked from home a few years ago. Yes, working from home, gave me wrist pain.
I was working off my dining table and I started experiencing a tingling sensation and pain from my right elbow down my wrist. It ached when I used the keyboard. It ached afterwards. It started affecting other activities.
I hated working. I hated that I was in pain. It slowed my productivity.
It Got Better
Thankfully, I knew how to fix myself. I had to rearrange my workstation. Did physiotherapy on myself. It took a couple of weeks but I finally resolved my pain.
What a relief! I was able to work again pain-free.
But what about you?
Do you know how to protect yourself from injury?
And if you got injured, do you know how to fix yourself?
Do you know the cause of your injury?
Do you know about the safe neutral working posture?
I want to help you answer these nagging questions. And get you back working in your space pain-free and safe.
